Does anyone have visibility on how PST's will be carried out, particularly for the Dubai office? I got invited to take the PST but haven't heard anything since.

Hello there,

Indeed the Dubai office didn't yet switch to Imbellus (online) yet - I passed my PST and interviews earlier this year.

The McK Dubai office is still closed - they are being very cautious with reoppening the office. As per my understanding so far, they don't seem that they will open the office before the end of Eid break.

I would recommend to get in touch with HR, they should give you a clearer answer - however, my bet is that the ealiest PST won't happen before end of June.

Best of luck on the process, and feel free to reach out for any tips regarding the McK Dubai application process.

Worth re-cheching with HR since maybe they have stopped for the moment -some offices have-.

I would suggest to reach out to the HR that wrote you. It's likely that it will be postponed after the covid crisis because they want first to assess the effects and recalibrate the hiring targets.
Anyway don't be afraid and write/call the HR, they are there to help.
