    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (New York, NY (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Invited through diversity forum. Presentation about the company. Day prior, happy hourish event. Everyone, I mean everyone was competent and nice.

    Interview with a director. Intimidating, but keep your chin-up, look at them in the eyes and answer the questions.

    Written assignment afterwards. Then offer. Process took about 5 weeks.

    HR is very kind. However, they are overworked.

    Consulting Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (New York, NY (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. This was followed by a phone screen with another recruiter, two 30 minute phone interviews with a Senior Director and Managing Director, and then an in-person with two Senior Directors. Overall, the phone interviews were pretty good, standard questions about my work experience and education, couple of behavioral questions. In-person interviews were laughably terrible, with neither of the Senior Directors having reviewed my resume beforehand, which meant the 30 minutes was spent walking them through my life story with no time for questions about their work or FTI itself. It became clear pretty quickly that they were simply pro-forma interviews and that they had already decided who they were going to give the job to. Sorry that I wasted my time with FTI's incompetent and unprofessional process. Needless to say, would not recommend this firm for experienced hires...
