I never had an in-person at McKinsey. All interviews were done via videoconference. I was totally convinced I was being punk’d. Truly. It wasn’t until I showed up on my first day and they had my name on the list that I was sure it was real. So weird... and I lived in New York!

Definitely heard things about them using interviews as free work.
