    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at FTI Consulting in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was actually very pleasant. It started with a couple of phone calls in which I was invited to do most of the talking. There's a lot of focus on the candidate's background and not quite as much about the company's day-to-day operations as I would have liked to have seen. Once I got there, I can kind of see why they didn't have a lot to say. You are very much on your own with no training.

    Interview Questions
    • How to you value a corporation? This one is so open ended, I had a hard time encapsulating the right answer given the narrow focus of the financial job I was applying for at the time.   Answer Question

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at FTI Consulting in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    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.

    UI Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at FTI Consulting in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by folks who presented themselves as the best at what they do, however you will discover a lot of the development they do is very outdated.

    You will see arrogance at its finest.

    It was also very interesting to see a person interviewing me with absolute no background with my field and I can understand this if he was interviewing me for making sure there is a good culture / personality fit however he was asking detailed questions without really knowing what he was talking about.
