    First round interview - two back-to-back 30-45 min interviews, mixture of cases and fit in each. Market sizing question and a market entry question. Interviewers were nice and professional. Fit portions only consisted of discussing 3 work experiences from my resume. They take a day to tell you whether you got through to the next round.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bain & Company in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was selected through my university's campus recruiting website. It is very important to apply both through their website and on your university's site. It was at a hotel near campus and I arrived on time. When I got there I had 2 consecutive 45 minute case interviews. They were not particularly difficult but I think it became apparent that I hadn't practiced enough. I found out that night I was not invited back.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview Details

    I applied on-campus for the post of an analyst. The process involved screening of resume and cover letter, followed by various rounds of interviews.

    Round 1: Elimination on the basis of resumes and cover letters. 30 short-listed out of 240 applicants. This was followed by a case-study workshop for the short-listed candidates.
    Round 2: Written round: Critical reasoning and logical flow related questions. Non Eliminative round
    Round 3: 1 or 2 interviews on revenue estimation, market sizing questions, along with a few resume related and HR questions. This was followed by elimination of majority of students. 6 short-listed out of 30.
    Round 4: Case interview on market entry, profit levels, business turn-around situations. This can be followed by additional HR or Case interviews for one or more candidates. Job offers were extended to 4 candidates.

    Interview Questions
    • Some of the case situations presented to certain candidates involved hypothetical situations and extensive number crunching.   Answer Question
