    Interview

    I had two 30 minute interviews for the intern position. The timeline for their hiring process is very long. They took well over two weeks following the interview to get back to applicants. They asked a lot about data analysis experience.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    I applied through campus recruiting and received an email letting me know I had an interview on campus in the coming week. The first round interview was held at the campus career center. I met with one of the managing directors and had a 30 minute interview that was pretty informal. The questions were mostly behavior, but there were one or two analytical ones.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Interviewed by all "non-staff" employees. They had obviously never been given interview direction. They were awkward people in general. It lasted about 30 minutes total. They didn't ask me any questions relative to the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you think you would be a good employee?   1 Answer

    Interview

    First, there was a resume and cover letter drop onto an applicant portal. This was followed by a followup phone call, that served as an initial screening and informational interview. This included basic questions regarding interest in the specific position. This was followed by an in office interview that lasted approximately an hour.

    Economic and Finance Consultant Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    It's an assessment day. From around 9.00 am to 2.00 pm. Firstly several employees introduced their program and the company, then there was a verbal test which is very similar to a combination of GMAT logical reasoning, verbal and reading tests, and a SQL type numerical test. Time is deliberately set to make you unable to finish the tests. After the tests, we were divided into groups of three to four and had an group exercise based a case the company did a few years ago. Then lunch break, followed by a final writing test which required you to summarise a short journal article.

    Interview Questions

    • The group exercise was pretty difficult, because the case was quite complicated, lacks some information, and time was tight.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Berkeley, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I got an on-campus interview that was around 45 minutes or so. The interviewer basically went through my resume and asked me about a lot of my experiences, why I wanted to apply to FTI consulting, what other jobs I was applying to, etc. The whole interview process was relaxed and there weren't many technical questions at all.

    Interview

    Through Skype, very conversational. Recruiter was friendly and relaxed. Supervisor was very hands on. Small office made the entire experience more personal. The job was very clerical but very engaging. Atmosphere of the office was always intense, puts pressure on you to push harder.
