Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Bain & Company (San Francisco, CA) in October 2019.

Interview

Applied via the company's website. Got an email saying I got an interview around 2 weeks after the application deadline. Had the interview 2 weeks after the email.

The first-round interview was with 2 consultants, around 30-40 minutes each. Behavioral question for around 5 minutes for each interviewer and the rest was case study questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bain & Company (South Bend, IN) in September 2018.

    Interview

    30 minutes back to back interviews for an hour. All the questions were case interviews, nothing behavioral. They just wanted to know my skills and it was also intimidating because it felt like I was just a machine.

    Interview

    There were two thirty minute interviews, both of which were cases. One was more quantitative (which I probably did better on) and one was more qualitative. It was my first interview ever so it was a little awkward.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was very straightforward! Before the interview there were a couple opportunities to network with junior and senior members of the Bain team. After sending in a cover letter and a resume, you were contacted back for an interview within a week. The first round of interviews was held on campus and consisted of two 30 minute interviews. Both interviews started with a small fit portion where they asked personal questions about your experience. They looked for confident genuine answers. Then we jumped into the case itself. This case had less guidance from the interviewer and you were expected to set up your approach, walk the interviewer through this framework, and draw information through logical questions. As you asked questions they pulled out information (graphs and tables) that you would analyze to get more insight into the case. Although this interview was not math intensive the graphs were tricky.

    Interview

    One Test, then one case interview, then 1st round 2 cases interviews. The HR was very helpful, the interviewers were ok, the working environment seemed gut. The only con would be making us flight 6h in the morning and then wait 3h hours in the office for the round beginn. Good experience overall
