Hi,

I entered my final interview for Mckinsey last week and I still did not get any call. I heard that the recruiting committee will gather and decide on the candidates. Is this normal not to hear from them this long?

Thanks

Hi Emine, as long as you did not receive a rejection email/call, you still have the same chance of getting an offer. Specifically waiting time of a week is absolutely normal. Having said that, there is nothing wrong with writing a reminder email to the Recruiting Team as sometimes the process takes longer time than usual due to operational reasons. Good luck!

Ex-MBB, Experienced Hire; I will teach you not only the how, but also the why of case interviews

I waited a month to get a verbal offer asking me to wait another year before joining - so waiting a week... eh, that's nothing :)

More seriously - please also realize this is a special time of the year. They probably would have wanted to spare you the wait, but things dont always go as expected. Feel free to reach out to HR, keep your fingers crossed and be patient. I know the wait is painful, but you cant do much about it.

Good luck!

Yes, it's normal, pls relax and wait for the call. If it is more than a week of delay - pls call the HR.

They usually respond within a few days. I would be patient for a few days more, then check in with HR.

Hi A,

They usually respond faster but can still be waiting for the pipeline to be confirmed.

If they won't respond in a few days you can contact HR for an update.
