    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FTI Consulting in December 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email the day after I submitted my application on their website. The email requested an interview the very afternoon due to the urgency of the project. The interviewer was very helpful and accommodating and was able to work with my schedule and reschedule a phone interview for the next day. The interview was on time, and very informative. It lasted less than half an hour and she was very friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • What got you interested in the field of Document Review?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. They pay a flat rate. I was able to negotiate when to start even though they then informed me they will not be able to get me start by the original date the project requires due to still needing to run conflict and background checks on me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I was referred by a former coworker for the job. The process took 3 months, 5 phone interviews and a final in-person interview with 4 senior management members. Due to the length of time, it was a frustrating interview process. Very inefficient, despite the fact that each company employee I spoke with or met was very professional and courteous.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting.

    Interview

    Conducted two one to one interviews on campus for the Senior Strategy Consultant position. FTI conducted two behavioral interviews with two different people, from the Managing Director level. The interview mostly covered your past background and experiences. One interview was very fast paced while the other went a bit slower.

    It seemed like they were attempting to ensure everything was accurate, with them trying to poke any holes in your responses.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Extensive, intensive, detailed, the interview process made me respect the company for the high standards it required to be hired. But this was also a frustrating process of talking to an extraordinary number of people over a six month process. Nonetheless, this turned out to be one of the best jobs I have ever had. I recommend FTI Consulting highly.
