    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Boston, MA (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Was not overly impressed with interview. It was a formula based interview process. Not the least bit dynamic. Very obvious a script of questions were being asked. Luckily it wasn't a face to face interview - I would have been rolling my eyes and probably would have left during the middle of the interview.

    • Questions were scripted and formula driven. Interviewer was following series of scripted questions - very obvious.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    Overall, it was a really great experience. One phone screening call and then two rounds of two cases. The cases were interviewer led for the most part but definitely require knowledge of how to drive a case. Slight behavioral component during the final round, but mostly revolved around the cases.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Bain & Company.

    Interview

    Round 1 - 2 x 40 minute interviews. Brief, unstructured fit questions: "Why Bain?" and "Why office location?" First case was very interviewer led, no framework was created. Moderate amount of quant, moderate difficulty. Second case was very interviewee led. Cost analysis of a mattress company. Structure was very important to solving the case.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Chicago, IL (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Typical two round interview. First round was two case interviews and second was a written case interview. Some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. It didn’t feel like interviewing at all (except for the written case), and felt like a feee flowing chat for 45 mins.
