Senior Director Interview

Senior Director
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at FTI Consulting.

Interview Details – Saw an online ad, sent in my resume and had an initial phone interview with HR that lasted about 15 minutes. Was scheduled to have another phone interview with the principals but that was changed to an in person interview with both the managing director and the senior managing director. The discussion with the managing director was straight forward, no real challenging/difficult questions. I had to wait about 45 minutes for the discussion with the senior managing director, even though I was told it would be only 5-10 minutes. No real challenging questions during this discussion either.

Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary. Asked about experience related to crisis communications, communications plan, coalition work and experience working with clients.   Answer Question

Foreign Legal Consultant Interview

Foreign Legal Consultant
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 8 weeks - interviewed at FTI Consulting in January 2014.

Interview Details – Brief phone interview then brought in for an interview with 5 people. Originally set with 5 kind of higher up people, but 3 cancelled last minute and sent in random underlings to interview me. They did answer questions I had, but seemed more interested in talking about themselves than finding out if I would be a good fit. I feel like I didn't get the chance to tell them why I would be a good fit because I did not interrupt them.

Interview Question – Had to take a half an hour quiz on a computer. It was like reliving the LSATs.   Answer Question

Corporate Finance Intern Interview

Corporate Finance Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at FTI Consulting.

Interview Details – First had an on campus 30 min with a managing director. It was mostly easy behavioral questions but he did ask me a string of basic technical questions (how would I determine the financial health of a company given their financial statements, what happens to cash if accounts payable goes up, etc.). This was strange because I talked to two boys with my same background about their interviews and they had all behavioral, so I assumed I was asked technicals because I am a girl...

Second round was a super day in nyc. Got flown out, put up in a hotel, steak dinner, and 3 interviews the next day (2 behavioral, 1 technical). Everyone was pretty nice and the interviews weren't so hard.

Interview Question – There was written case on the super day. Had to write a recommendation given some financial metrics about a company and a newspaper article.   Answer Question

Consultant II Interview

Consultant II

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at FTI Consulting.

Interview Details – I applied for the position through on campus hiring by filling out an application on the university's website and the company's website. They conducted on campus interviews, which lasted about thirty minutes. Very simple interview, though the interviewer (a senior level consultant) was more concerned about what I knew about FTI than actually asking about me. I sent him a follow up email the day after thanking him for the opportunity to interview, but didn't receive any communication from the company until a month later, rejecting me.
