    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney (Chicago, IL (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First round interview was pretty typical for an on-campus interview-Case and behavioral. Second round consisted of a written case and two behaviorals. The written case was deemed impossible to solve based on my conversations with fellow students- I ended up just writing numbers on the paper. The behavioral interviews were very provocative and tactless. Many questions were about my socioeconomic status growing up and things of that nature. Interviewers were arrogant. Did not receive an offer, but have to believe that may be for the best.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney (Chicago, IL (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied off-campus for a summer internship from a part-time MBA program, but during the same timeline as the standard MBA internship recruiting cycle. They have several former part-time MBAs as consultants and had a nice process for us to get access to the firm. Apps were due in mid December and we got Interview invites in early-to-mid January. First round was in their Chicago office (part time students can't utilize on-campus intern recruiting--school rule) and consisted of 2 45-minute interviews. 1 was pure behavioral/fit and it was clear that he tried to ask questions that I may not have prepared for (slightly nonstandard questions), but he was super nice and the conversation was low-stress. The other was pure case and was standard in some ways, but this guy was more surly and also tried to present the case in a format that is a little different than the way most people prep for cases. They want to see how well you can go off script and adjust to a slight change in routine. They got me--I bombed the case and was only mediocre on the fit. One cool thing is they offered an optional practice interview the week before with a senior associate--this was helpful in the sense that it was additional practice with a little more pressure than just prep, but not helpful in the sense that the case was way easier than the one I got in the interview, so it kind of misrepresented the way I should be preparing.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney.

    Interview

    First round interview: one 45 mins Case interview and one 45 mins Behavioral. Interviewers were different for the two interviews. They were held back to back. Both were virtual interviews. Case interview was a market sizing problem, which was not so difficult.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney (Chicago, IL (US)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    First round was 45 minute behavioral interview and a 45 minute case interview. The second round was two 45 minute behavioral interviews and one 90 minute case presentation. The case presentation was rather complicated with a number of complications in cost structure and revenue streams.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney (Chicago, IL (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through campus, got a first round interview which consisted of a case and behavioral. The behavioral was standard and easy going, mostly talked about past experience rather than "why consulting, why ATK..." and was pretty enjoyable. The case was pretty difficult, and usually is related to the background of work the interviewer has.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at A.T. Kearney (Chicago, IL (US)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    I had two interviews with this company, back to back each 45 minutes. They consisted of a case and a 'fit' interview. The cases were surprisingly HARD! The interviewer didn't give me a ton of direction and yet he clearly had an answer that he was driving towards. They didn't smile very much either which made it hard to get into the 'fit' conversation. I'm not sure what they're looking for, but I'm kind of glad I didn't get another interview because it was NOT fun to interact with these people.
