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

    Interview

    Got selected for first round interview a week after submitting cover letter and resume. It was 45 min behavioral, 45 min case study over skype with 2 different people. They were both nice, ultimately the approach to the case wasn't structured enough. Got a phone call later the same day offering results and feedback.

    Busineess Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kearney (Chicago, IL (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I applied through campus career center. The process took a 2-3 weeks and was very professional.

    First Round: Over the phone, one case and one behavioral. Both people were very nice and professional, and made sure to make you feel comfortable during the interview.

    Final Round: In office, 2 cases one behavioral. Everyone in the Chicago office was very welcoming, and tried to relax the candidates who were interviewing. Behavioral was more of a conversation rather than being grilled by classic behavioral questions, and the cases were a bit more qualitative. Not really sure if this is consistent across all interviewers at AT Kearney.

    Interview Questions

    • All cases and behavioral interviews were standard. Cases were interviewee led.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kearney (New York, NY (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Easy interview process compared to MBB. As long as you know how to case, the interview process will be a breeze. Probably only have to do 5 case interviews to be prepared, whereas MBB can be as many as 60. For the behavioral, just be yourself and try to keep it conversational - all very standard questions!

    First-round (virtual): 1 case interview (40 mins), 1 behavioral interview (40 mins)
    Final-round (in-person): 2 case interviews (40 mins), 1 behavioral interview with a partner (40 mins)

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kearney (Chicago, IL (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Half behavioral, half case, not too difficult. The interviewer was very calm and nonchalant throughout my interview, so I couldn't tell whether or not I was doing well. Overall it seemed too go fine, though it was one of my first interviews.

    Half behavioral and half case interview the behavioral was typical of any behavioral interview. The case interview was 45 minutes long and was based on my interviewer's previous experience. Made it slighly more challenging that the case was from real life experience.
