    Interview

    The process similar to other processes. You start from online application, where you need to upload your cv and cover letter. Then, if you are successful, you are invited for 2 tests (numerical and verbal), where you don't have time to complete. And after that you are divided into teams, where you have to work together on 1 project. After that you have 30 min to read text and write a short review on it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied at university and was asked to return a few months after being rejected the first time and went through 3 phone interviews. After the phone interviews, I was asked to come to the office for 3 interviews that were mainly behavioral, but one was fairly technical. I then participated in a group case study with other applicants where we were given an allotted time to come up with a solution when given data and information about a company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (London, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of two stages. The first round assessment centre consisted of 4 GMAT-style tests and a group exercise. The tests are relatively standard and can be prepared for with any GMAT textbook. I think it was one non-calculator math test, a logical reasoning test, and a verbal and writing tests. The group exercise involved being split up into groups of 2-3 to prepare a pitch for setting up a lottery business. New information has to be digested under timed conditions and certain solutions discussed. It was important to identify a framework for discussion and have an impact on the course of debate.

    The success rate of the first round ac was not high. I think only about 3 people got through out of 16. The second round ac consisted of three stages. The first was a relatively relaxed interview with a junior member of the EFC team. The second stage was a case study where you had to use Excel and Word to assemble a report on valuation of losses to a company. It is quite an elaborate case with lots of data and documents and it is important to find the things they are looking for. I then had to present my findings to an MD, who asked more questions to test my understanding of the case. The final interview was held with a senior MD. He asked rather probing questions and I think intended to test how I held up to certain aggressive or unfamiliar questions/responses.

    The decision came 1 week after the second round ac.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    3 phone interviews followed by in-person interviews in Chicago. The first call was a HR screening, followed by calls with the managing directors and a team lead. Because the bulk of the company's project management team sits in Chicago, I spent half a day interviewing with the rest of the team there.
