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

Interview

Very challenging process. There was a screening, followed by an assessment, followed by four 30-minute interviews with four leadership team members. A lot of scenario-based questions. They want to make sure your values align with the organizations, and that you are actually qualified for the job. Every person I spoke to was very professional, personable, and polite, which gave me a great impression of the organization (which I still have) They like confidence in your answers and do not mind if you ask to repeat a question or if you say you don’t know something - they’re very reasonable and truly just want to get to know you better.

Interview Questions
  • What was one decision you took without consulting with management? Do you have experience arranging travel for executives? Are you comfortable with speaking with executives and leadership team members on a daily basis? Do you have experience coordinating calendars for executives or clients? What is your biggest strength / weakness? Do you have experience working in a remote environment?

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Bain & Company

Interview

Met with an HR rep first. She was in a different time zone which caused me to miss the interview. She was so nice and flexible about it and we were able to reschedule quickly. She was amazing at explaining the position and benefits that Bain offered. Really sold me on the position and company. Then I met with three team members within the next week for individual interviews. Every single person I spoke with was so great and welcoming even in an interview environment. They all really made me feel like this was the right place for me and even reached out after I accepted the offer to congratulate me and tell me they were excited to work with me. The time from the initial HR interview to the offer was one week. ONE WEEK. It was mind blowing how quickly the whole process went compared to other jobs I have applied for.

Interviews are focused on case study and behavioral fit. They will ask you why you are interested in consulting, prior experience, what you study. Nothing out of the ordinary but make sure to be prepared for case interviews.
