    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Interviewed through university. Went through only 2 rounds of interviews, the first just being a half hour, the second round consisting of a few in a row with a longer duration of time for each. All very laid back and really focusing on who you are as a person it seemed.

    Interview Questions

    • None were terrible, all straight forward interview questions that you would expect - why do you want to work here, etc.   Answer Question

    Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I initially met with consultants and senior consultants, then with directors and MDs, and finally with the SMDs of the groups I'd potentially be joining. Then more SMDs wanted to meet with me. Lots of interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me a lot about projects I'd worked on at previous jobs, even though the projects were several years back and I had been very junior level and only peripherally involved, and for a very short time.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They were absolute snakes - they told me I'd be brought in as an experienced hire, but bumped me to 1st year consultant. They axed first year consultant bonuses and the employee stock purchase plan after I began, even though the company was having a record year. Greedy, old-school accountants who think it's okay to treat people that way just because they were treated that way.

    Reasons for Declining

    They offered to fly me to Houston for a second interview, but I decided it was better for me to pursue an opportunity that was "real" engineering, where I would actually put my degree to work for a bit. It didn't sound like a bad gig at all down the line though, no technical number crunching, more analytical thinking.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed 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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FTI Consulting in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email later that day asking to set up a call with someone from human resources. We spoke for about 25 minutes and it was not anything difficult and there were no trick questions or anything. He said he would follow up with me within a week and after 10 days I sent a follow up email and never got a response. It has been more than 2 months now and I still haven't heard back.
