My first round interviews with McKinsey consist of 2 back-to-back interviews of 50 minutes each, preceded by a 30 minute HR interview. I was wondering what to expect during the HR part. Aren't the Fit questions already included in the "main" interviews?

Thanks!

Hi,

I heard about HR interviews in some US offices for generalist positions and HR interviews for McKinsey subsidiaries like Digital Ventures.

Agree with Bruno, same questions as for the regular interview:

  • Story about yourself
  • Why consulting, Why McKinsey
  • Stories: Personal impact, leadership, achievement / entrepreneurial drive
  • Your questions to the interviewer

NOT AVAILABLE

Hey,

Which office are you applying to? In the Western European ones never heard about any HR interview.

Anyway, the fit questions are indeed included within the main interview
