Very Easy Interview

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
New York, NY

The process took a day - interviewed at FTI Consulting in January 2010.

Interview Details – The interview went ok. The location was tough to get to. I would have liked to have more time with the interviewees and would also have liked the opportunity to show my skills and how they would've crossed over. Interview was very imformal and I never knew where I stood or what I did wrong.

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at FTI Consulting in July 2008.

Interview Details – The interview process was not very structured. Some interviewers had technical questions while others were probing to see if "I was a good guy".

Interview Question – Explain how the finanical statements are inter-related and which one would be the best one to choose if you only had an opportunity to view one.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiations were channeled through HR which made it difficult to push past the initial offer. This may be a different experience for others as I was coming out of school to take this offer.

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at FTI Consulting in February 2009.

Interview Details – The culture seemed like a true meritocracy. There seem to be ample opportunity for advancement. However, the backgrounds of the professionals in the los angeles office are quite varied and it appeared to be a bit of a motley crew. Compared to peers such as AlixPartners and Alvarez & Marsal, overall the professionals were less impressive and less polished.

Interview Question – if you were meeting with a new client and needed to immediately rectify some immediate solvency issues, what would you do?   Answer Question
