I applied online - interviewed at Bain & Company in February 2014.

Interview Details – There are 2 rounds of interview for the spring internship position at Bain Korea. Both the first round and second round interviews were case interviews. First round case was to answer why a food processing company's revenue isn't performing well and the second round case was to guestimate sales of a local shop.

Interview Question – Why should we hire you? (Need to research the company before the interview to properly answer this question)   Answer Question

Interviewed at Bain & Company

Interview Details – 1. Resume screening: from what I know, HR does the screening, curtailing people who do not meet the minimum requirements but also most of the resume screening.
2. First-round interview: at the office, asked about current events, asked me to read a piece from Times and develop a case study.
3. Second-round interview: interviewed with three people, mostly case studies and guesstimation.

Interview Question – Not really. Mostly expected case studies.   Answer Question
