    Director - Restructuring Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at FTI Consulting (Houston, TX) in February 2011.

    Interview

    FTI is good at restructuring work. I spent 6 months following up with the Managing Directors, at their request, once per week or so that were initally respectful. Don't waste your time as I was told we're "3 1/2 years from needing someone." Understanding you won't interview Friday and start Monday, why are you wasting time talking to folks when you say multiple times we'll need people over the next month, and then after a face to face you come back with this. Are you kidding me! What a joke and utter waste of time!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at FTI Consulting in October 2011.

    Interview

    Several behavioral questions, like why you choose this grad schoo, how did you handle a difficult situation. The interviewer was very nice and had very relax conversation. But then she gave me a printed out spreadsheet to analyze the aggregate profits and followed up many accounting detailed questions.. Didn't expect that :(

    Research Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FTI Consulting (London, England (UK)) in September 2011.

    Interview

    First round interview was with a group of 7 other interviewees. First we had a group discussion/case study. I think at this stage they are looking to see if you can work in a group. Then was a numerical/logical reasoning test and then a verbal reasoning test. These are pretty tough and time pressured but if you enjoy problem solving then you should be fine. The second round interview consisted of a written case study. Mine had to do with valuation. It is quite quantitative. Then I had a 1:1 interview with a senior consultant. It was pretty competency based. The final interview was with another senior consultant. This last interview was pretty tough and contained two mini case studies. Interviews probably depend on what expertise your interviewer might have. There were also a lot of questions about past education/work experiences. Know your cv well and know exactly what the company does and what your position will be. Understand the notion of PDV. Since their acquisition of LECG they still have to sort out their interview process as they've incorporated aspects of each firms' interview process.
