Bain’s interview format involves a series of case interviews to help us get to know you better. Since each of the case interviews will entail a discussion of an actual Bain case, you will also gain some insights into what it is like to work at Bain. We encourage you to prepare for your case interviews.

Successful candidates will participate in up to two rounds of interviews; each round will have two 60-minute interviews. An English exam with multiple-choice questions may also be given, based on a candidate’s test scores and case interviews.

First round
The first round of interviews will consist of two 60-minute case interviews with consultants and managers from the Buenos Aires office.

The bulk of the first round of interviews will revolve around the discussion of Bain cases. Your interviewer will present a short business problem and then ask you to structure the problem and recommend a practical solution.

Second round
Those successfully passing the first round will participate in a second round of interviews in our office. You will meet with Bain managers and partners during this final round, which will consist of two 60-minute case interviews.
