    Hey, I was told I had been invited to the first interview on the 17th September and I received a call yesterday in which I booked a time. So it has been a while for me as well!
    ah crap. I have two missed calls from a private number yesterday afternoon, and I suspect they were from Deloitte, esp since I had been invited for first interview on 15th Sep! Ah damn. Do you know the fastest way I could contact them?

    I guess email? They've been quite good with replying- although the process is taking forever - found out I was through to interview 2september- feels like ages ago! Does anyone have any tips re the group exercise? It sounds really different from others! Also does anyone have any tips for good commercial awareness research? I'm really a bit worried after looking on wiki job about it- o finally- is anyone else still waiting to hear back from IBM after passing assessment centre?

    Whose email? they never email me back unfortunately. I have tried Laura Redmond and Parm Nijjer, but never had a reply from them. Phoning never seems to work for me either.

    Just completed the Bain online test. Definitely harder than SHL/Kenexa but I didn't feel it was too bad. Nothing like Oliver Wyman which was the hardest numerical test so far.

    Contacted them in September because I had an offer elsewhere and they said they'd get back to me (I assume everyone else too) in the week starting 03/11. Looks like that didn't happen.

    Yeah they said that to us too at an open day thing, so assuming it will be earlier rather than later next week.

    is that Bain london? i swear they explicitly stated in the email when you apply you'll find out on the 17th nov if you've progressed to tests. they stuck to their date last year
    I got invited to tests yesterday and took them today. Looks like quite a few others did too.

    Edit: Just checked the initial confirmation email and it does say "Our deadline is 2nd November and we will be contacting candidates with the outcome of their applications on 17th November." The deadlines for tests is 11/11 so they might get back to us on 17/11 factoring in test results.

    when did you apply then? Pretty fishy when they openly state, "Our deadline is 2nd November and we will be contacting candidates with the outcome of their applications on 17th November."
    07/09, did you apply significantly later? They revealed approximate dates for first-rounds and final-final rounds in the test-invite email too.

    Yeah true. I have a big four offer already, so I think I'll only bother with MBB and Monitor Deloitte though. Haven't had to do a formal case interview yet, so I may be in for a shock.

    Hi people. I applied to bain over a week ago. Today I got a phone call from a no caller id number but I missed it. I'm not sure if it was just random or a company tried calling me. I just wanted to know if Mckinsey or Bain, do they call you to invite you to do the tests/interviews or do they correspond via email. I haven't been invited to tests wither either of the companies
