    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Spent three full days jumping through hoops, meeting employees from all levels of the company; taking and passing a test that they said 85% applicants fail. Listened to snide comments about my employer and just general chest puffing about how great FTI is and how much better they are than the rest. Didn't receive an offer because of salary, something that was discussed before the hoop jumping and was told would be 'no problem' (part of the chest puffing I could only assume).
    Do yourself a favor, see how often ads come up for entry level positions and you'll see it's a revolving door over there.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and got invited to an assessment day, which involved three tests in the morning - verbal, maths and written - followed by lunch. After lunch, those who passed the test are asked to stay for a CV interview and subsequently, a senior managing director interview.

    The verbal test included grammar correction and the maths test was purely mental math - no calculators allowed. We were told that these two were more important than the written test. All three were highly time-pressured.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Singapore (Singapore)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, and the process took more than 1 month before I received email invitation to assessment center. The assessment center consist of 4 parts: 1 30-min numerical test (it was not difficult, just simple addition and multiplication, but the time was limited and it was hard to finish on time), 1 30-min verbal test (it was more likely a GMAT format verbal tests, but quite difficult, and the time was so limited that you cannot finish all of them), 1 30-min interview with junior and senior consultants (CV-based, and the interviewers were very kind), 1 60-min writing test (summarize an article). The result has not come out yet, and there will be another round of interview with senior management if passing the first round.
