Interview Details

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.

    I had two 1:1 interviews with professionals. They were very sweet and professional. Two interviews were all about case interviews with no behavioral questions.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed 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 interviewed through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed 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.

    I interviewed online. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Bain & Company in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Case study question that tested the knowledge of the individual. It was terribly difficult, but requires a lot of thinking. One thing that did surprise me was a brain teaser that was asked near the end of an interview. Also, I had the opportunity to dine with an ex-employee with whom I learned a lot about the firm.
    Overall, the experience was pleasant and not too difficult. Your standard consulting interview.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Bain & Company in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    2 rounds of back to back 30 minute phone interview. The questions were pretty straight forward, but having done minimal prep for case interviews, I don't think I asked the right questions.
