    Senior Consultant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at FTI Consulting in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and didn't expect anything. The recruiter contacted me after a week and scheduled a phone interview. During the phone screening, I led the whole talk. I think I was very persuasive and did a good job. At the end, the recruiter said I had an very impressive experience and he would send my information to hiring manager and get back to me as soon as possible. And I never heard from him any more. I sent a follow up letter after 10 days, still no reply.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at FTI Consulting in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone screening with HR recruiter, and interviewed with four managers. All managers were very nice, and provided good information about the position and company. Interview process too a little longer than I expected. However, that could have also been due to the holidays in between.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at FTI Consulting in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email later that day asking to set up a call with someone from human resources. We spoke for about 25 minutes and it was not anything difficult and there were no trick questions or anything. He said he would follow up with me within a week and after 10 days I sent a follow up email and never got a response. It has been more than 2 months now and I still haven't heard back.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at FTI Consulting (Annapolis, MD).

    Interview

    Phone Interview with HR followed. HR's interview was fairly in-depth for HR. They were fairly well briefed on the job requirements and asked good questions right off the bat. In-person interview with two levels of management. It was detailed and thorough. Nothing was out of line, but it was involved. Come prepared with your own questions and lead the interview.

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    First, there was a resume and cover letter drop onto an applicant portal. This was followed by a followup phone call, that served as an initial screening and informational interview. This included basic questions regarding interest in the specific position. This was followed by an in office interview that lasted approximately an hour.

    Interview

    Interviewed by all "non-staff" employees. They had obviously never been given interview direction. They were awkward people in general. It lasted about 30 minutes total. They didn't ask me any questions relative to the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at FTI Consulting in March 2015.

    Interview

    Most of the people I interviewed with were friendly and engaging. I was contacted via LinkedIn based on skills present on my profile, and met with the person contacting me. First round was just a basic behavioral meeting. Second round was a case interview which on the whole was not too difficult, just sifting through a lot of data and telling a story with the information to interviewers. The third round, after being called back post-case interview, was overall a negative experience. I believed that since I had been through the case interview and had been called back that the rest of the interview process would be goodness of fit. The third round felt like a first round interview; lots of questioning my choice to interview with the company - overall, it felt negative and unprofessional. Furthermore, I had been contacted by them to begin with, so the way I see it, we needed to both decide we would want to work together. Then, on top of all of this, two weeks later, after having officially applied online, I was notified by their email subsystem that I 'would no longer be considered for the position.' Thinking this was strange, I contacted the employee who had made initial contact with me, and they told me that they had not made a decision and that this email was a mistake. Since contacting that person about the email, I have yet to hear anything from them. Overall, I am surprised at the hiccups along the way in this process. From what I have read on Glassdoor, most have not experienced this type of process.
