Interview Details – Went thru 3 processes, which was boring rather than hard. They tried to ask twisted questions, which were miserably silly. The firm seemed nice, though. The questions are widely known on web, so they would be easily accessible.

Intern Interview

Intern
Zürich (Switzerland)

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Bain & Company in March 2011.

Interview Details – Basically, you apply online by sending the usual stuff (CV, motivation letter, grade transcript, etc..) Then I got a call rather quickly asking me for my availability to do an interview. I picked a date (usually they have recruiting days every Monday) and since I was not in Switzerland at the time, they arranged and paid for everything (flight and hotel). For an internship there is only one round with 3 interviews (1 in English, 2 in German). Two were consultants and one was a manager. You always have some questions about the CV, then the case and finally 5mn to ask question about the firm.
The atmosphere is very friendly and they gave me a detailed feedback (only upon request though).

Interview Question – nothing special here, depend on the case. In general, the cases were very easy to grasp.   Answer Question
