Interview Details

One Test, then one case interview, then 1st round 2 cases interviews. The HR was very helpful, the interviewers were ok, the working environment seemed gut. The only con would be making us flight 6h in the morning and then wait 3h hours in the office for the round beginn. Good experience overall

    Very professional interview process from start to finish. Bain is interested in well rounded professionals, deliver within that mold and you should get an interview. Once in the interview you need to be savvy and demonstrate basic business knowledge. Otherwise just be very personable, consulting requires solid social skills after all. I met with the two interviewers and I was sure to follow up with an email.

    They think they are very smart over there at Bain, just practice your cases hard and you too might have a shot.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Bain & Company in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I recruited for Bain via UC Berkeley's on campus interview process. The information sessions were valuable in providing information about projects and office culture. The interview felt a little bit rushed as they were interviewing quite a few candidates over a few days. The one difference between the interviw and preparation is that they feed you data and ask you analyze it versus have you extract data via your own logical processes, this made it hard to demonstrate one's own though process, in my opinion.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bain & Company in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    two back-to-back, one-on-one interview with an analyst from the boston office and new york office respectively.
    they interviewed a lot of people on the same day, so don't expect they will give you the time of the day to either explain their own backgrounds/ listen to your story

    went straight ahead for two case interviews, each 30-35mins, and 5 mins for q and a
    one case on whether or not to purchase a shop from a friend, and another one about a manufacturer.

    honestly, cases were not difficult, but the attitudes of the interviewer could sway the entire mood / flow of the interview. i had a wonderful flow with the first guy, but the second girl was simply awful. mainly because she seemed disinterested to interview you in the first place, looked around while conversing with you, and second of all, she threw a case out from her head - meaning, i did not even know whether she was playing around with me or... she just knew the case SO well.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Bain & Company in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I did a first round interview with Bain. They were very nice and professional. Several consultants contacted me via email and phone calls before I interviewed to answer questions and practice case interviews. The interviews themselves were case interviews along with a behavioral question about my resume. They contacted me a day or two later by phone to let me know the results of my interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Bain & Company in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I guess this is only valid in Brazil:

    First there's a GMAT-like test and then a business case test. Average difficulty, really short time.
    Then there's a group panel (or group dynamics as we call it in Brazil). Just focus on rule #3 (for those of you who been around Victor Cheng's videos).

    Between these two first stages there's a cut rate of about 90% of candidates.
    If you're among the remaining 10%, then it's off to the interviews.

    First round interviews: Two case interviews with consultants and/or managers.
    Second round interviews: Two case interviews with managers.
    Third round interviews: Two case interviews with partners.
