Bain’s interview format 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.

Full-time candidates will participate in two rounds of case interviews. The first round will have up to three 45-60 minute interviews, and the second will have two 60-minute interviews.

SA candidates will participate in two rounds of two 45-minute case interviews.

First round
Your interview may begin with an opportunity to share your achievements and future goals and you should have time at the end to ask questions.

You will meet with two Bain consultants / managers on your university’s campus and the focus on a 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
You will meet with Bain partners and have at least one case interview during the second round. You may also have an experience interview. In the experience interview, your interviewer will ask traditional résumé 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 as part of your case interviews.
