    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting in October 2017.

    Interview

    30-minute interview on-campus, was really difficult. My interviewer only asked one behavioral question and didn't really seem interested in what I had to say. You have to have your technicals down cold, this felt like an Investment Banking style interview.

    Corporate Finance Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Houston, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Was under the impression that it would be only a behavioral interview. The first 3-5 minutes of the interview was me giving an overview of who I am and my background. The remaining of the interview was technical questions. The questions felt very much like an investment banking interview. Both individuals were really rude and don't provide feedback on whether or not you are answering the questions appropriately. In addition, they very obviously were putting checks and x's next to the questions that I was getting right and wrong. Overall it was one of the weirdest and least personal interviews of recruiting on-campus.
