    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Boston, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my school career website. They got back to me fairly quickly afterwards asking for an in-person interview. I was not in town so we scheduled a Skype interview, which took place about a week after initial contact.

    The interview was pretty standard. I spoke to two FTI consultants and they told me about the company and what the internship would entail. Afterwards, they asked me a few question about what I do and why I'm interested in the position.

    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.

    Interview

    This company has no respect for others time. I had several interviews lined up on this particular day and the person I was supposed to be meeting with had me waiting over 30 minutes.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Washington, DC) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Two face-to-face interviews. Most of the discussion was around personality, discussing positive and negative experiences I'd had and how I dealt with them, individually and in a team. There were some very soft technical questions too, asking about technology I'd used, including whether I enjoyed it / had an aptitude for it.
