    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    The interview was friendly and consisted of some personal (leadership, experience, etc.) questions and cases. The cases were interesting and novel, and the interviewers seemed to really want to get to know me. They were also open about their experiences at the firm.

    Interview

    Bain held info session at my college. Got a first round interview. Didn't pass.
    .Everything was pretty standard. The questions were ok, but perhaps I didn't pass because I didn't get one of them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Boston, MA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Was not overly impressed with interview. It was a formula based interview process. Not the least bit dynamic. Very obvious a script of questions were being asked. Luckily it wasn't a face to face interview - I would have been rolling my eyes and probably would have left during the middle of the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    Overall, it was a really great experience. One phone screening call and then two rounds of two cases. The cases were interviewer led for the most part but definitely require knowledge of how to drive a case. Slight behavioral component during the final round, but mostly revolved around the cases.
