CME Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Los Angeles, CA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at FTI Consulting in February 2013.

Interview Details FTI's website said first-round was behavioral/traditional interview questions only. My first-round was completely technicals - no behaviorals were asked. Honestly, it was my fault for not reviewing my technicals beforehand, but I was still disappointed that I was caught off-guard. I wish the interviewer at least tried to get to know me before he started throwing technicals at me.

Intern- Forensic and Litigation Consulting Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and interviewed at FTI Consulting.

Interview Details 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. All behavioral questions and really laid back interviewers. I felt very comfortable considering it was my first interview

Difficult Interview

Economic and Financial Consultant, London Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at FTI Consulting in December 2012.

Interview Details After submitting CV and Cover Letter I was invited to a 'first assessment day' - I am yet to find out if I'm through to the second.
First Day assessment Centre:
-A numerical test that is designed by them - not like GMAT format. 26 questions in 30 minutes that were difficult! Just try to be as fast as possible - the best ability to have due to time restrictions is ability to estimate effectively.
-A verbal reasoning test that is very much the same as GMAT format.
-A Group Exercise about introducing a lottery operator to a highly developed country. You are certainly guided through this and your group will consist of three people. The best advice is - start crunching the figures and numbers from the beginning. First you are given facts and figures about the cities of this country and chances of a lottery&advertising figures - why the government would want to introduce a lottery etc. You are asked to give the three main objectives you would have for an operator before you are given the figures of a hypothetical operator and you have to present in 5 minutes why you think this operator is best.
-Written test: Had to summarise 2 pages on cigarettes becoming a form of currency in PoWs.

Interview Question – The Numerical Test.   Answer Question

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at FTI Consulting in March 2008.

Interview Details Recruited on-campus; first round interview based on fit and minimal technical questions. Second round consisted of three interviews - two of which were focused on fit and one of which was focused on technical skills. Company places a premium on fit since so much work is based on deal teams and interacting with clients and referral sources.

Interview Question – Explain how to value a company with negative equity   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Was not able to negotiate
