Full-time interview

Bain’s interview process involves a combination of case and experience or motivational 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. In the experience or motivational interview, your interviewer will ask traditional resume and behavioral questions, as well as questions about a mini-case based on your experiences, to better understand you and your interest in Bain. We encourage you to prepare for your case interviews.

Successful candidates will participate in up to two rounds of interviews, each with two to three 40-45 minute interviews.

First round
You will meet with an HR manager and two managers in the Milan or Rome office, if you are invited to interview with Bain.

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.

Often, the first interview kicks off with an experience or motivational interview conducted by the HR manager, in which you will share your achievements and future goals. 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 in our Milan or Rome office. The second round will consist of two 40-45 minute case interviews with partners.
