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

    Interview

    Case Interview + Behavioral Interview, the interviewer was super helpful and did their best to help give tips + hints when stuck during the case. The behavioral section was unstructured, just a general conversation which was more difficult because there was less of a q&a

    Application

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

    Interview

    Zoom interview, 2 30 minute cases with two current associates. It was fairly straightforward, and the cases weren't easy but not exceptionally difficult either. The Zoom format made some parts easier, although I had issues with connectivity that made it a bit less smooth.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The first round was two case interviews, each of which were pretty difficult. Not much guidance from the interviewers. There were no behavioral questions at all, just straight to the case. One of the interviewers was very kind and made the interviewee feel comfortable; the other clearly tried to intimidate the interviewee and throw them off their game.

    It was a first round interview for the Bain summer internship. There were two cases by two different associates. They were both relatively easy market sizing questions with minimal fit interview questions.

    Interview

    2 rounds of interviews with 2 cases during each process. All cases were fairly standard and were not very in-depth but more so just how you thought about problems. Final round of interviews were with partners in the NYC office

    Application

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

    Interview

    Straightforward-- they told me 5 days in advance to schedule an interview slot. It was done through zoom rooms with 3 or 4 other participants, but we split into breakout rooms for the actual cases.

    Interview Questions

    • 2 case interviews, very standard 4 or 5 question format, exactly like the ones on their website.   Answer Question

    First round was just two cases that were more involved than the practice interview cases on their site. The interviewer will move you along so you don't have to worry about the time.
