    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kearney (New York, NY (US)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    45 minute Case and 45 minute Behavioral. You won't know which will come first. It was pretty easy going. The Behavioral interview was a typical interview. Know your resume. The case portion was tougher. I had a guy with a think accent and it was difficult to understand what he was saying at times.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Kearney in March 2014.

    Interview

    On-campus recruiting. Two rounds interview. Applying to international offices from US schools, so interviews are via skype/phone. Southeast Asia office HR team did pretty bad job in term of handling the whole process. The person who took care of my application quit and no one followed up. I had to send email to ask about interview schedule. Also got the official offer letter only one week before my internship started - two months after I got an offer call from HR.
