Interviews

Bain’s interview process involves a series of case interviews to help us get to know you better. Since each case interview 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 45-minute case interviews.

First round
You will meet with two consultants or managers on your university’s campus if you are invited to interview with Bain.

Your interview may begin with an opportunity to share your achievements and future goals. The majority 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. You should have time at the end to ask your interviewer questions.

Second round
Those successfully passing the first round will participate in a second round of interviews, either on your university’s campus or in our office. You will meet with Bain managers, principals or partners during this final round, which will consist of two 45-minute case interviews.
