Experienced professionals
We value the expertise and fresh insights that our experienced new hires bring to Bain. Only with the best minds and diverse perspectives can we help solve some of our region’s—and the world’s—toughest business problems. As a result, Bain Santiago is always seeking experienced professionals for the associate consultant (AC), consultant and manager roles.

We recruit experienced professionals year-round. Your years of relevant experience will help determine which role you should apply for at Bain:

  • Up to four years of experience – Associate Consultant (AC)
  • Between four and six years – Consultant
  • More than six years – Manager

Your position level will be adjusted, if needed, during the interviews.

Contact us about the AC, consultant or manager roles.

Those interested in non-consulting positions should visit the corporate roles page on our career website to find and apply to open positions.

AC Interviews

Bain’s interview process 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 to four 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 Santiago office.

The bulk of these 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 consultants and managers during this final round, which will consist of four 60-minute case interviews.

Please contact Erica Dias if you have questions about the interview process.

We encourage you to prepare for your case interviews.

Successful candidates will participate in up to three rounds of two 60-minute interviews.

First round
You will meet with two partners in our office. Your interview may kick off with an opportunity to share your achievements and future goals.

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.

You will have time at the end to ask your interviewer questions.

Second and third rounds
Those successfully passing the first round will participate in a second round of two interviews with Bain partners in our office. Candidates are often asked to participate in a third round of two interviews with Bain partners.

At least one of your interviews will be a case interview, similar to those in the first round. You may also receive an experience interview. In the experience 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. If you do not receive a separate experience interview, you should expect experience interview-type questions in your case interviews.
