    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting in August 2011.

    Interview

    The senior consultant interviewed me. His phone was breaking out. I did not get him very clearly. He sounds nice. There wasn't much professional or difficult questions. He kept telling his own stories. I don't think they need people urgently.

    I applied online. I interviewed at FTI Consulting.

    Interview

    Two back-to-back 30 minute interviews, each with two consultants from the local branch (4 interviewers total). One interviewer was an analyst and the other was a senior consultant or director.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    On Campus Interview - very casual 2 half hour interview with directors at various offices. No case questions; this interview is purely behavioral/fit. Interview also helped clarify job function as intern since the website and description on the career site were not very clear. Would advise doing research on the company before going into the interview
