AC interviews

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 three rounds of two or more interviews. The first two rounds will be conducted by experienced consultants or managers and in the final round, candidates will interview with Bain partners. At the end of each round, candidates will be informed whether or not they will go on to the next round of interviews.

The interviews begin with questions about the candidate’s experience and will test the capabilities on a business case. Candidates will be asked to solve a real case with the project manager, identifying the problem and providing a possible solution for the client.
