    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (London, England (UK)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and waited around 2 weeks for CV reviewing. Then I was invited to their company and completed 3 written tests with other candidates in the morning. There are three written tests, including verbal, numerical and written tests. They are all GMAT style questions and the example numerical test given the email can also be used for preparation. The written test is being used for testing whether you have a good command of English. After three tests, we all stayed there for lunch and have chance to meet the recent graduate student who just joined them. Then, they informed us who would stay there for the following group exercise in the afternoon. There were 13 candidates and 6 has left.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (London, England (UK)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    If you get called in for the Assessment Centre (AC),

    the first AC involves a few tests in the morning: numerical, and written. If you pass, you proceed to the Group Exercise.

    You then get called back for the 2nd AC if you pass. This involves a written Case Study. You get put into a room for 100minutes with a laptop and some information. These may be in the form of e-mails, news clippings, etc. You will always certainly receive excel sheets with information on it.

    Your task will be to compute a number of values. For instance, how much profit would a company have earned in the next year if they had operated then. The data will not always be 100% accurate, so they expect you to spot the mistakes and correct them.

    You will have to write a report as well, and this takes a lot of time. So you will need to throw in your information as you go, and then structure it later. Not all the information is useful, so speed read. Take note of the important bits. A long article may only have 1 or 2 relevant sentences.

    You don't need very impressive maths, as long as you can add, subtract, multiply, divide, you will be good. Just be careful of some values (they may be entered as negatives, rather than positives).

    Once you have computed everything, report and all, the assessors will print a copy of your report and table, and talk to you about it. They will ask you about mistakes. And point out things with you. Generally, they are trying to understand why you are doing what you did in calculating and doing the report.

    Some questions will involve "how did you go about finding the useful information" or something like that. They will also offer a few scenarios to you, and ask you how these particular scenarios may change your results. Think carefully, and listen to the questions properly. It is okay to clarify, but try not to sound nervous or hesitant or thrown off. The questions are simple if you think it step-by-step. Mostly, the questions involve "will this situation increase or decrease the value you have obtained?".

    Try to think of things in terms of prices and supply as well. It helps.

    You then have an interview with a Senior-Managing Director. It will be very friendly, but professional. They are trying to understand who you are as a person, and what you like about the company, and your understanding of the work that the company does. So be sure you know what the company's work entails, and what you find interesting about it.

    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.

    Corporate Finance Interview

    Negative Experience
    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself.   1 Answer
    • What is WACC? How do you calculate?   1 Answer
    • How would you value a company? What would show that a company is in distress?   Answer Question
