    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied through my university (cover letter, resume, transcript). Interviewed on campus-2 30 minute cases with different interviewers. Later that day i found out I got to the final round which was the next day. These were one hour with principal/vp's-30 min case and 30 minutes of behavioral/conversation. Was informed a week later I did not get an offer (wasn't a surprise because I knew I messed up one case and in those competitive finals you really have to be flawless basically). Overall a good experience and was great practice for other consulting/case interviews.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bain & Company in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through targeted on-campus recruiting and received an invite shortly thereafter. The interview process was two back-to-back cases. Each case was interviewee led with supplemental charts and data. My interviewers were both very warm and comfortable. There was a brief "Tell me something about yourself" in the first case, but the process is very case heavy.

    I did not proceed to the next round, but still received a phone call from one of my recruiters to explain the process - a very nice touch.
