Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Bain & Company in June 2016.

Interview

I applied for the position online, and in less than 3 days someone from their HR department emailed me. They informed me that they had reviewed my resume and wanted to set up a time we could speak. After I responded to the email we promptly set up a time for a phone interview. We spent about 40 minutes on the phone going over my resume, the job description, and other questions.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    Interview was very standard, had me fill out paper application upon arrival. Interview was extremely short. Went over resume and job description, discussed previous roles. Interviewer asked case hypotheticals. Interview was set up through hiring agency so communication was minimal.

    Interview

    Was given this interview through a staffing agency. Interviewed with HR manager, managers themselves, and other MAs. Straightforward. Asked a lot about experience and how it would transfer to this company. Company cares about its culture and getting the right fit. Personality is important. They want you to really know about what they do as a business.
