I have 2 specific questions that would appreciate if someone with experience can help me clarify:
- I had 3 interviews in the final round with McKinsey and received the result on the next day that I did not pass the interview through their automated generic email, with no feedback. Is that a common practice in McKinsey? given this is the final round. Or am I supposed to receive a call from one of the partners who will give me comments? Should I keep contact HR or reach out to partners through LinkedIn until I get my feedback?
- How the final decision is made among the interviewers? Just to give you a bit of context: my first interview with Associate Partner went very well that I would give myself 9-10/10 for that. My second one with Partner was so so/okay (my recommendation was different from what she expected but I made sure that it was justified/backed up with supporting ideas). Then my 3rd one with another Partner was a little bit awkward as he asked very random stuff rather than a structured interview with PEI + case. The conversation was not smooth compared to the other two interviews but I was still in control.
In that case, does the Partner's inputs matter the most that influence the whole decision making regardless of your performance in AP interview? Does the candidate need to score well in all 3/3 interviews to secure the offer or 2/3 will suffice? I applied for Junior Associate position
