    Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Applied through MBA campus recruiting. Positive experience throughout the recruiting process. Most supportive, helpful, and encouraging people I've ever dealt with, and I'm just a candidate. Very impressive.

    R1 Interviews were back to back 45-min cases, both sort of difficult, with minimal behavioral and some time for questions at the end. One of my interviewers was literally yawning and totally disengaged (hence the "neutral" rating), and the other was awesome.

    Bain is my favorite of MBB and has outstanding people.

    First round interview: two 30 minutes case interview with some behavioral questions. The case interviews are fun and should be doable with preparation. However, not sure with their criteria for the interviewee.

    The process is fairly quick and painless. Everyone is extremely nice throughout. First round interview in Boston office. Typically they are somewhat math heavy problems. Its nothing crazy but practicing mental math is critical.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Boston, MA (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewers were very friendly and the process was straightforward. Each interview has a behavioral component and a case part. The tone is conversational for the behavioral part of it, and slightly more formal for the actual case.

    Application

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

    Interview

    First round was fairly straightforward case interviews with market sizing and product rollout questions. Interviewers were super friendly and fairly helpful. There were also a handful of boilerplate personal/behavioral questions about why Bain/why consulting/etc.
