    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bain & Company (Washington, DC (US)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The Bain interview process is similar to other strategy consulting firms. It was a case interview and the impressive thing about it was the guy who interviewed me designed a case on the fly based on my resume. I thought that was impressive and spoke to the culture of Bain as being innovative, smart and saavy.
