Consultant Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at FTI Consulting in June 2013.

Interview Details

Phone call from in-house recruiter. I got an email and then they followed up with a call. I had applied online through their website. The recruiter was doing the typical phone screen to see if I basically had a pulse and could communicate. They were pleasant and I got the feeling they were doing a bunch of these in a row so it was pretty mechanical.

Interview Questions
  • Mostly about my resume, ideal type of job, and salary. It was a phone screen so they were trying to see if I should come in for an interview. It was the basic questions that they could just get off my resume.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at FTI Consulting in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a campus interview posting at Rutgers Business School. I had a pre-screen phone interview and then an on-site interview with a manager and a director. During the on-site interview there was a case study writing samplt that was times for 25 minutes. Most of the questions were behavioral but some assessment of business terms and knowledge. I ended up being at the office for over 3 hours, got the job, and I am very happy.

    Interview Questions
    • There was a 25 minute writing prompt. The question was how would you approach a business problem and go about solving it. I gave the textbook 5-step approach answer, if you went to any decent business school then you would know what I;m talking about.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at FTI Consulting in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Campus resume drop. On-campus interview (30 minutes). In-office Super Day (4 hours).

    The process was fairly efficient except for the happenings after the Super Day - it took 2 weeks for FTI to extend an offer.

    I would suggest attending their events to get your face out their. The on-campus interview is focused on your past experience, and the in-house interview is more forward-looking in terms of evaluating your fit at FTI.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at FTI Consulting in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    One on one campus interview with managing director. Very nice guy who did most of the talking. Wasn't sure if he was looking for me to take control of the interview. Interview seemed a little casual as we discussed things like travel and cultures and economics. He spent some time describing how selective they were. He asked me what I knew about the position, my background, and why I waited so long to apply.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at FTI Consulting in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    First round was one on one with HR. Plus a writing test....
    Everything was easy. Just a standard "tell me about yourself" type of question and why us type... fairly standard.
    the essay portion was to write about anything in about 10 minutes. so I just wrote about a pretty standard SAT/GMAT type essay.

    Second round with about four people at the division. Nothing special. No trick question.
