    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I was introduced to the company through a friend. The entire process was very professional and very communicative. You can tell that they care about the company culture and a work hard, play hard mindset. I would have taken the job if it had been closer to home.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Chicago, IL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The people were very nice. The feedback post interview was excellent. I actually heard back from the partner that I interviewed with and not the recruiter. His feedback actually helped me prepare well for my next MBB interview from which I got an offer.

    Interview

    Overall the impression is positive. However, the interviews were quite quick, so if you got delayed at some stage, you would not be able to finish the case or ask personal questions. The cases were solvable, and interviewers were ready to help you out.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Bain & Company in December 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Bain and BCG and found their interviews to be roughly the same. The only exception was that BCG began with a computer based math/logic test. They both began with a brief 'tell me about yourself' then went into the case study. After the case, I had the rest of the hour to ask questions. Each interview was two one-hour interviews with current employees.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were case studies based on cases the interviewers had.   Answer Question
