I had my McKinsey screening interview today and I received a mail from a recruiter asking me for time to discuss my interview feedback tomorrow?
specifically the mail asked for a "quick call with you tomorrow to discuss how the interview went"
What does this likely mean?
Do they usually discuss feedback with successful candidates?
My guess is I think not, as successful candidates are usually told the next steps right?
This has been a dream of mine and I do know that I'll know tomorrow. However, any light that you can throw on this matter can help alleviate some amount of anxiety!
Thanks for your help
McKinsey Interview Feedback Call
While our users shared that a feedback call is generally a neutral or positive sign, the OP @MCKANON shared that the call was a rejection. This means that a feedback call be any result. We review our users' experiences below.
It's normal and they will definitely discuss feedback with successful candidate. I remember after the first round, one of the guy who interviewed gave a me a call and told me the good news (I was going to the final round) in like 8 seconds and then gave me feedback on my case study for like 20 minutes. It was very very helpful.
Very common to get feedback after your interviews, regardless of whether or not you made it. If you made it to the next round, USE THE FEEDBACK. A LOT. They will judge you on how well you take/action on feedback.
User @Nohelp2015 shared that you should focus on the feedback regardless of the result:
Just one thing, prepare yourself to listen to the feedback and to ask more questions about how you did whatever the news is.
What I mean is, that if you receive a good news you might just want to celebrate and forget to ask what you could improve. And it works the other way too, if you receive a bad news you will want to end the call as soon as possible. Instead listen and keep asking questions, you could be finding value in the feedback.
If the response is negative, the call is also an opportunity to network, ask his number/mail, add him on linkedin... and later you can ask him for advice, send your resume, etc.
