    Interview Details

    Interviewed through university. Went through only 2 rounds of interviews, the first just being a half hour, the second round consisting of a few in a row with a longer duration of time for each. All very laid back and really focusing on who you are as a person it seemed.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at FTI Consulting in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    One on one campus interview with managing director. Very nice guy who did most of the talking. Wasn't sure if he was looking for me to take control of the interview. Interview seemed a little casual as we discussed things like travel and cultures and economics. He spent some time describing how selective they were. He asked me what I knew about the position, my background, and why I waited so long to apply.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at FTI Consulting in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    First round was one on one with HR. Plus a writing test....
    Everything was easy. Just a standard "tell me about yourself" type of question and why us type... fairly standard.
    the essay portion was to write about anything in about 10 minutes. so I just wrote about a pretty standard SAT/GMAT type essay.

    Second round with about four people at the division. Nothing special. No trick question.
