    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Houston, TX) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I did a first round interview with Bain. They were very nice and professional. Several consultants contacted me via email and phone calls before I interviewed to answer questions and practice case interviews. The interviews themselves were case interviews along with a behavioral question about my resume. They contacted me a day or two later by phone to let me know the results of my interview.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company (New York, NY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    two back-to-back, one-on-one interview with an analyst from the boston office and new york office respectively.
    they interviewed a lot of people on the same day, so don't expect they will give you the time of the day to either explain their own backgrounds/ listen to your story

    went straight ahead for two case interviews, each 30-35mins, and 5 mins for q and a
    one case on whether or not to purchase a shop from a friend, and another one about a manufacturer.

    honestly, cases were not difficult, but the attitudes of the interviewer could sway the entire mood / flow of the interview. i had a wonderful flow with the first guy, but the second girl was simply awful. mainly because she seemed disinterested to interview you in the first place, looked around while conversing with you, and second of all, she threw a case out from her head - meaning, i did not even know whether she was playing around with me or... she just knew the case SO well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company in October 2012.

    Interview

    I recruited for Bain via UC Berkeley's on campus interview process. The information sessions were valuable in providing information about projects and office culture. The interview felt a little bit rushed as they were interviewing quite a few candidates over a few days. The one difference between the interviw and preparation is that they feed you data and ask you analyze it versus have you extract data via your own logical processes, this made it hard to demonstrate one's own though process, in my opinion.

    Interview Questions

    • To explain the desire to be a consultant without being vague   Answer Question

    Interview

    Very professional interview process from start to finish. Bain is interested in well rounded professionals, deliver within that mold and you should get an interview. Once in the interview you need to be savvy and demonstrate basic business knowledge. Otherwise just be very personable, consulting requires solid social skills after all. I met with the two interviewers and I was sure to follow up with an email.

    They think they are very smart over there at Bain, just practice your cases hard and you too might have a shot.

    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

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Boston, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online, and was called back within a week of having submitted it. There were two rounds of interviews, each 15 minutes long and each with a Consultant. This might be because I was a college student, but prior to the interview, I was contacted by an Analyst who helped guide me through the process. I highly encourage individuals applying to take advantage of this person.

    Interview Questions

    • For the first round of interviews, there was a very short behavioral question segment (tell me about yourself, tell me about x and y on your resume, highlight 3 points on your resume for me etc) and then a case. The case is based off of a recent project of theirs. It's not wildly difficult by any means, but the presentation is expected to be very clean. Confidence is critical.   Answer Question
