Nope. The recruiter knows you have a full-time job and your interviewers won’t know when your first round was. And you don’t get bonus points for doing 20% worse one week earlier

I delayed my first round with McKinsey by about two months

Thanks!

Our R2 to Final are always at least a week apart unless you do a power round. Or at least historically they have been.

That’s great insight - really appreciate it!

Ever have an interview so bad you felt almost good about it? The recruiter started our conversation venting about a referral who was grossly under qualified. This immediately shifted to the agency does not follow industry standard titles. They are all very senior...so I should consider a much more junior role (they hadn't talked more about the role at hand). After talking of my experience they then summed me up as a "media person" and I had to correct that I never worked at a media agency.

So if I start I'm not eligible to next year then following year is when the match is paid? That is a lot of time value of money lost. Are other firms more competitive, I'm following up with pending offers from Deloitte and PWC, do they do the same?
