AC interviews

Bain’s interview process involves a series of case and experience 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 a minimum of two rounds of interviews; each round will have two 30-40 minute interviews.

First round
Should you be invited to interview, you will meet with two consultants from the Toronto office.

First round interviews will consist of two standard case interviews. 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 be invited to the Toronto office for second round interviews. You will meet with Bain managers, principals or partners during this final round, which will consist of two 40-minute case interviews and an experience interview.

In the experience interview, your interviewer will ask traditional resume and behavioral questions, as well as questions about you and your interest in Bain.

Consultant interviews

Bain’s interview process involves a combination of case and experience 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 a minimum of two rounds of interviews; each round will have two or three 30-40 minute interviews.

First round
If you are invited to interview with Bain, the first round of interviews will consist of two standard case interviews. 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 be invited to the Toronto office for second round interviews. You will meet with Bain case team leaders, managers, principals or partners during this final round, which will consist of one standard case interview, one written case interview and one experience interview.

The goal of the written case is to provide you with an opportunity to better demonstrate your skills in a more real-life situation. It will also give you a better understanding of the day-to-day role of a Bain consultant by simulating our work process. Bain will provide you with 20 to 30 slides that describe a client situation and ask key questions pertaining to that client. You will have 55-60 minutes to review the slides and prepare a short synopsis of your insights and recommendations before the interview begins.

In the experience interview, your interviewer will ask traditional resume and behavioral questions, as well as questions about you and your interest in Bain.

Manager interviews

Bain’s interview process involves a combination of case and experience 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 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 an experience interview, you should expect experience interview-type questions as part of your case interviews.
