Will McKinsey & Company have a case interview portion during the recruiter screening for an Associate-level opening. This is my first interview with them.
The recruiter mentioned that it will only be an audio (Zoom) call, not a video interview. I sort of assumed that there won't be a case interview portion because it is an audio interview with the recruiter. Is my assumption true? I don't want to ask the recruiter with the interview coming up in the next 2-3 days, as it might set a bad opinion.

Former recent BCG recruiter - I would be shocked if they do. Recruiters typically aren't trained to do so and focus on behavioral or competencies. Overall seeing if you have the gravitas or horsepower to move forward. The firms want to see how you think (recruiters and on case interviews) Also, the firms have moved to doing some cases with AI... hope a McK person can confirm but that's my guess.

Thanks for the clarification. I was hoping that would be the case.

It’s just a standard recruitment screening interview that you have coming up. Quick questions about your resume, trying to gauge your interest in the role, etc.

You’ll have cases + PEI once you move to the next round. They won’t surprise you with anything you can’t expect. They actually want to see you prepare and make an effort to do it right, so you’ll be given time to study and come up to speed

I'm coming to the end of a contract term and being converted to FTE.

The offer was presented to me by the hiring manager and not HR/Recruiter. To me it is a lower base salary offer than expected, so I asked for info on the total compensation package (base, benefits, bonus, stock/rsu, etc.), which I was told about when they took me on under the contract with the intention to convert.

Hiring manager sends me an email with only standard benefits, no bonus, etc. Are these red flags?
