When did you hear back from McKinsey digital assessment test?

Hi all,

I just took this newly launched digital assessment from McKInsey 2 days ago. Since it's unlike original PST and I'm applying for an off-cycle position, I have no clue expecting when to hear back from the firm.

Is there anyone who has already taken the McKinsey digital assessment?

Hello!

Depends on HR´s workload, so you can expect anything between 2 and 10 working days.

If you have an urgency because you have another offer expiring, for instance, call HR and tell them about it. This really makes the process faster.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

I already have an offer from another firm but without any urgency. Still need to consider that as an option as you said. Thank you for the comment! — Anonymous A on Jan 17, 2020

Hi,
It usually takes up to 2 weeks. If in a hurry, I recommend writing/calling HR without worrying about bothering them: they are there to help.
