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

    Interview Details

    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 :(

    1st Round
    1. Case: You have 3 communications groups: Big-box, mid-size, black market. How would each of
    the groups be affected if a new law passes that penalizes groups that conduct in unbusiness-like
    practices. This law penalizes any company that breaks the agreement signed by the big box and
    mid size companies, but not the black market. How does this affect market share? How does
    this affect sales? How would you measure the change in share, and capture of the market. Draw
    a graph of the change in market size that you believe will happen.
    2. You are given an excel spreadsheet, and the interviewer asks you to go through line item by line

    Director - Restructuring Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ monthsinterviewed at FTI Consulting in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    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!

    Interview Questions
    • Generic case... Here's a client situations and the challenges around it. Please come back with your recommendations.   Answer Question
    • We travel out on travel the first of the month and back the 21st. Why would you want to do this it's a horrible life.   View Answer
