Hi Anonymous A,

thanks for asking your question on our Consulting Q&A :)

I found an old Q&A that might be interesting for you. It is not particularly about the phone interview with Oliver Wyman, but with McKinsey. Here are the experiences two of our users share:

  • The case has the same kind of structure as a normal McK interview, but without graphs since it’s via phone. So the interviewer will give you the case problem (in my case it was market entry) and you have to approach it like you would a normal case, so first of all elaborate your structure how to approach it (issue tree). You will have to do some calculations, but they are really not so difficult. And then at the end you have to give the recommendation and support it with the arguments as the closing statement, also including risks. As you see it’s really like the normal kind of case but simpler I would say. It is a bit weird not being face to face to the person, so maybe practice as well such kind of setting to get used to it. Hope it goes well!
  • its cake. it will be given by a mckinsey alum, and is typically going to be one of the simplest cases you'll ever do... probably simpler and quicker than any of the ones here. its simply there to weed out people who aren't going to advance early in the process without going through the trouble of flying them out, having current managers talk to him/her, etc.

For the Q&A, check the following link: McKinsey's phone case interview

I hope this is helpful for you!

Best of luck for your interview!

Hi! My phone interview with OW included a very short personal fit/conversational interview part at the beginning (they asked me why OW, why consulting). Then I had to solve two short cases (one was market entry, one growth strategy case). Overall the interview took just half an hour and it was quite hectic but the cases were not difficult. Bonne chance!

Which companies are currently using written tests ?

All major firms like McKinsey, BCG and Bain use tests to assess a candidate's analytical skills. However the design of those tests can differ a lot.

Getting Up to Speed

In order to repeatedly demonstrate prerequisite skills under the pressure of a real case interview, you need to learn the basics and practice cases.
