    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    The first round is the Coding project within 4 hours. The second round is interviewing with two people, one by one, they are from the team and one is the team manager. The conversation is really smooth and the tech case is not hard. But the 4 hours project can be challenging. I spent total time on that.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    Interview process was friendly, challenging, and collaborative. Most company interactions are evaluative so be friendly, write thank you emails, follow up when you can. Making a good impression on recruiting is important for initial screening, but after that, you have to be quick and creative when doing cases, as well as calm, friendly, and curious during interviews.

    Interview

    DO NOT waste your time for FWRD@Bain. They give you a run around regarding the hiring process. 2 Phone, 1 In-person and then NOTHING! Zero communication and it seems to be the norm for this place. I will be calling Bain HR and letting them know what this "affiliated" company is doing for HR practices

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    This was an unbelievably transparent process -- obviously difficult, particularly the case questions, but there weren't any surprises. The firm's culture comes out at every level, from Consultants to Partners.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Dallas, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Interviewer wasn't technical enough, was a generic HR interview with behavioral questions. Initially did get an offer but was pulled for not having a degree despite over a decade of experience at FANG companies. Seems they are pretty strict on this requirement and or possibly not sure what they want.

    First round was on campus. There were 2 interviews that consisted of 1 case each. If you finish the cases quickly, they'll ask a few behavioral questions. Second round was in the office I was interviewing for and had a similar structure. 3 cases with more senior members of the firm, with a bit of behavioral if time allows.

    Standard on-campus multi-round process; first round consisted of two interviews, both were cases. First case went well and interviewer was friendly, pretty standard case.
