Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Washington, DC) in May 2019.

Interview

7 rounds of interviews (after the phone screen!) - 3 on the phone before 4 separate in the office. (They definitely should have combined the office interviews. Several people were not prepared and were asking the same questions as everyone else or were looking at the resume the first time during the meeting.)

Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    They try to get the interview process done in one shot that takes a few hours with several parties of varying ranks. One after another. There is little coordination so questions may be repetitive but the purpose is more does this person fit rather than can they do the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    The culture seemed like a true meritocracy. There seem to be ample opportunity for advancement. However, the backgrounds of the professionals in the los angeles office are quite varied and it appeared to be a bit of a motley crew. Compared to peers such as AlixPartners and Alvarez & Marsal, overall the professionals were less impressive and less polished.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The interview went ok. The location was tough to get to. I would have liked to have more time with the interviewees and would also have liked the opportunity to show my skills and how they would've crossed over. Interview was very imformal and I never knew where I stood or what I did wrong.
