    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at FTI Consulting (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Surprisingly no behavioral questions at all. They tried to see how I handled pressure by asking me VERY technical questions, despite knowing that my finance experience was very limited. They also tried to make me nervous by asking me a couple of questions in Spanish (so be aware of what you put on your resume).

    Interview Questions

    • Very specific technical questions (ex. specifics about FCF growth percentage in Gordon Growth method)   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at FTI Consulting (Miami, FL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was relatively easy and brief, only lasting about 10-15 minutes. The interviewer was interested in what my previous experiences have been in the field and how I felt I would be a good fit for what they were doing. I explained what I have been doing in my career over the last few years and what brought me to choose FTI as my next step. She was very pleasant to speak with and spoke highly of her experience working with FTI over the last few years. Overall, I felt very comfortable with the experience and was invited to join their team at the end, pending additional conflicts checks for a project starting immediately.

    Corporate Finance Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at FTI Consulting (Amherst, MA).

    Interview

    First we had a pre interview "networking" night (aka the interviewers got drunk at the open bar while we were trying to ask them real questions). It seems as though they came to our school to recruit only because they went there for undergrad, and wanted to relive their "party years". They never intended on seriously interviewing any of us. The next day the interview was pretty ridiculous, a lot of specific technical questions... For an entry level job? They were interviewing college seniors! Needless to say, none of us that they interviewed went on to the final round. Now that I've graduated and have settled into a career at a firm where I am satisfied, I have realized that the culture at FTI is incredibly sexist and old fashioned, think 1950s era. This is what I have heard. So obviously, they don't hire many women.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you kids still go out to (name of local bar in college town) ? Seriously they asked us about this.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at FTI Consulting.

    Interview

    Applied on school career service website and got pre-selected in two weeks. Back-to-back interview: lasted exactly an hour, 30 mins each with different interviewer. The first lady I talked to work for forensic, not actually healthcare. Asked some general questions, went through the resume, and one behavioral question. When time was up I was guided to another room talking with the healthcare director. Basically he went through the resume again and wanna know why I'm interested in FTI. In the end he emphasized "Do you have any questions for ME". Everyone is nice and approachable, and I really enjoyed talking with them.
