    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.

    • How would you get to finding 13 weeks of cash flows?   Answer Question
    • How are the three financial statements related?   Answer Question

    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.

    Application

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

    Interview

    The on-campus interview was 2 30 minute rounds of mostly behavioral questions with only two technical questions. The interviewers were well organized and easy to communicate with; however, I felt as though some questions between the two interviewers were redundant.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FTI Consulting.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR. Questions had nothing to do with the position. Interviewer seemed rushed from the start- which made me feel uneasy. I wasn't even asked if I had any questions at the end of the interview. Very disappointed, especially after preparing for hours the day before. If all their employee's are as miserable as the interviewer seemed, I'd rather not work for FTI.
