    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at FTI Consulting (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Campus resume drop. On-campus interview (30 minutes). In-office Super Day (4 hours).

    The process was fairly efficient except for the happenings after the Super Day - it took 2 weeks for FTI to extend an offer.

    I would suggest attending their events to get your face out their. The on-campus interview is focused on your past experience, and the in-house interview is more forward-looking in terms of evaluating your fit at FTI.

    Surprisingly no behavioral questions at all. They tried to see how I handled pressure by asking me VERY technical questions, despite knowing that my finance experience was very limited. They also tried to make me nervous by asking me a couple of questions in Spanish (so be aware of what you put on your resume).

    • Very specific technical questions (ex. specifics about FCF growth percentage in Gordon Growth method)   Answer Question
