    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.

    Interview

    Overall the process took about three weeks. I applied via a public posting, and was contacted three weeks later. I had a phone interview with a recruiter. I found that I was rejected due to a lack of experience in a certain area, which I did have experience in. When I asked for clarification they claimed I just did not explicitly say it.

    Health Solutions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    One of the worst processes I've ever been a part of; it assured me I do not want to work here with in the Health Solution group.

    Further more, screw this company. Based on my interview experience, they want to hire excel jockeys to put someone behind a computer to run excel spreadsheets all day. I'm very glad I didn't get an offer but really wish they didn't so inconsiderately and disrespectfully waste my time in the interview process I spent a colossal amount time of a week trying to figure out some functions on a stupid excel spreadsheet, which I had no prior experience with.

    This was one of those interview processes where I remember the names of the people who interviewed me so that down the road I can screw them over if I get the chance.

    Interview Questions

    • There was an excel "case" study test that required knowledge of apparently the VBlookup function and a couple other ones to make sense of a spreadsheet. This is your typical mindless interview test since this is a very easy skill to pick up on the job. Further more, the fact that this was the test led me to believe the company really wants to hire excel jockeys first and foremost.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting in November 2015.

    Interview

    The process similar to other processes. You start from online application, where you need to upload your cv and cover letter. Then, if you are successful, you are invited for 2 tests (numerical and verbal), where you don't have time to complete. And after that you are divided into teams, where you have to work together on 1 project. After that you have 30 min to read text and write a short review on it.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Century City, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Century City, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    First a recruiter sets up a phone interview (30 - 45 minutes). If you pass, then the face-to-face. I interviewed with 4 managers. 2 the first time and 2 the second time around. It was a normal process, expect one manager cussed during the interview. That did not impress me. I should have read the signs about the office and the culture.

    Interview Questions

    • The main question they all asked, was if I was able to get along with different and difficult personalities. Uh, another sign.   1 Answer
