    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Telephone, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a recruiter was easy and focused on background and career transition questions. I had to follow-up and call in as the recruiter was slow to schedule after initial email and then forgot the time we had agreed to. The position and market served was described well. Interviewer said she'd pass my info along to the hiring manager for a phone follow-up interview. Haven't heard back in over a week yet.

    Discovery Attorney Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Group interview with 8 candidates in one room, with the person in charge of hiring randomly asking one question of a person at a time, with a vague attempt at continuity of conversation. When it came time, I asked a series of direct questions which. The answers left a little ambiguity as she "wasn't sure", but she seemed quite confident in them nonetheless. These answers were patently false. As an example, I asked a simple question about whether cell phones were allowed in review rooms, and I was told that yes, they were allowed. On the first day of the project, we were informed that by company policy no phones were allowed in any reviews at all. Aside from the policy being unprofessional, as we were constantly watched over, the interview process was completely misleading, showing the true nature of how they operate

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Chicago, IL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Very long process as there are many rounds of interviews but the questions are straightforward and reasonable. You are likely to meet with all levels if you are a junior applicant, so you have an opportunity to speak to peers as well as those who you will report to. The interviewers tend to really focus on how your skill set and past experiences make you a good fit for the position. You shouldn't expect to get any of those pointless personality questions like "if you were a crayon, which color would you be?" Typically, if the team thinks you're a good fit, you'll know pretty soon after your interviews if you've got the job.
