Bain’s interview process involves a series 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 up to two rounds of interviews, each with three 45-minute case interviews.

First round
You will meet with two Bain managers or partners on your school’s campus or at the nearest Bain 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.

Your interview may kick off with an opportunity to share your achievements and future goals. ou should also 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, typically in our office. You will meet with Bain managers, principals or partners during this final round.
