hi everyone,

I finished my McKinsey final round interview on Thursday, but not hear any feedback today (Friday). Does it mean I did not pass? I have the impression that McKinsey will notify the candidate of the result very fast once he/she passes. For example, I received the invitation for the next round only 30 min after I finish my first-round interview.

Thank you.

While things can get delayed sometimes, the delay does not give any direction on the outcome. So don't worry!

Hi there,

It is true that successful candidates usually hear back soon after the final, however I am also aware of exceptions. You should hear back in max one week with the results, whatever the outcome – at this stage I believe no one can really predict it.

Good luck!

Hi,

It doesn't mean anything. Interviewers need some time to sync and make a decision. Keep calm and wait for the results:)

Hi A,

Do not worry, it's been little time, they may wait for the pipeline to be confirmed. Sometimes candidates can get an offer after a week. I would recommend waiting and if they don't give any feedback till next Friday, contact HR to get an update.

Best,

Andre

Hi there,

Don't panic! There could be so many reasons there is a delay. Stay calm and wait for the news. It could be 1-2 weeks before you hear anything, so just sit tight and focus on other activities in the meantime.

Don't worry about that which you cannot control!

Typically you can expect to hear back from the final round interview within 2 days of the actual interview. Even with covid-19 and virtual interviews that has been happening. However as with anything else there have been delays and sometimes it just takes longer.

Give it a week, I am sure you will hear back before next Friday

All the best,

Udayan
