    Interview

    Interviewed by all "non-staff" employees. They had obviously never been given interview direction. They were awkward people in general. It lasted about 30 minutes total. They didn't ask me any questions relative to the job.

    On campus - 1 interview. Same question asked to all the candidates interviewing that day. Interviewers are friendly. Process is quick. Questions on background, resume, data structure . How would you test your code. Write down all the test cases. Some questions on SQL. Not very tough. They expect you to ask good questions at the end. The entire process has only one round.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Chicago, IL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    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.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FTI Consulting.

    Interview

    Full day interview process. Generally starts with 5 half an hour interviews though I interviewed on an off cycle so my interviews got extended to about 45 mins each. Then a 2 hour finance/accounting exam. The exam itself is pretty easy, simple DCF and balance sheet analysis plus some economic questions. It is a long day though and different from most super days due to so many interviews and a 2 hour exam.
