ACI Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA (US)
No Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Atlanta, GA (US)) in February 2015.

Interview

Interviewed on campus. Two back-to-back 30-minute interviews. The first one was divided into behavioral questions and a mini case. The second interview has a longer case. Both cases were pretty quantitative.

Before the interview somebody from the company contacted me for a practice case, which was in addition to the workshop they ran on campus.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    Did OCR at target school, made it to second round. Interview was somewhat difficult, but not unpleasant. Bain is definitely looking for people who are their "type." Also, I've heard that hiring process can be very different based on the location you are applying too (especially overseas v. NYC for example).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    great, brief, very professional, interviewers were very friendly
    first round was very professional, one by video screen and one in person. the fit section is not very long, maybe around 5-10 minutes and not very structured: had the feeling they were asking whatever they found interesting in my resume.
    follow up was quick and prompt in both the first and second round
    second round were much easier cases than other consulting firms in my opinion, held in boston. often includes market sizing component.

    To solidify an interview, expect a great deal of networking (phone calls, events, etc.) First round interview was two cases, 30 minutes each, with two different consultants. The cases were exactly what you would expect.
