Mckinsey phone case coming up this week - any advice? I’m worried about not being able to connect with the interviewer since I think we go straight into the case

There is no connection with the interviewer at all. I don’t even think they will see your resume. After asking if this is still a good time for you they will dive directly into the case.

In the final interview having a connection with the partner before the case starts is important, but the phone interview is very different. It is very simple and short. My phone call lasted a total of 13 minutes haha.

You will get a very simple case introduction (mine was profitably focused) and a basic question to start off. The interviewer may ask a few follow up questions after you present your initial strategy and then it’s into the second question, which is probably a financial analysis. A few quick follow up questions from the interviewer and then you present you “recommendation to the client.” I may have forgotten a couple small things in there, but overall it’s super simple and fast. Nothing complicated or very deep.

Don’t make the interviewer wait forever while you perfectly structure your ideas - you’re probably not going to be perfect anyways and awkward silence is…awkward. Keep things conversational and fluid. At least that’s what worked for me.

Honestly just focus on your listening skills. The math isn't that hard, just basic addition and multiplication
