Hi Anonymous,

I didn’t interview directly with OC&C, however this is what I learned from previous candidates on their recruiting process:

  • the standard process involves at least two rounds, with two cases in each of them and fit questions at the beginning
  • the cases are pretty similar to the standard ones in consulting, and usually involve market sizing
  • the online analytical test is similar to the SHL one, so practicing on that would be a good preparation

As for the type of cases in the interview process, you can find a list with examples at the following link:


As usual, specific countries may have a slightly different process, therefore it would be a good idea to verify with the recruiter the actual steps involved, in particular for what concerns the test.

Hope this helps,

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.
