    Consultant financier Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Paris (France)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    J'ai d'abord postulé en ligne via le site de mon école puis j'ai reçu un mail quelques jours plus tard m'invitant au 1er tour. Il s'agissait de 2 QCM en anglais visant à tester les aptitudes logiques et le niveau d'anglais:
    - 1 test numerical reasoning (40min - style GMAT)
    - 1 test verbal reasoning (40min - style TOEIC)

    Les tests ne sont pas spécialement compliqués, c'est un exercice de temps où l'efficience et la rapidité priment. Il n'est quasiment pas possible de terminer ces tests sauf en passant 30 secondes maximum par questions, ce qui demande pas mal d'entrainement et de bachotage des ces tests standardisés.

    Concernant l'entretien dans son ensemble: accueil froid d'un membre de l'équipe FTI, en jean basket, des locaux gris, pas d'au revoir à la fin du test.

    Concernant la préparation des tests, ils vous communiquent par email des liens d'entrainement SHL mais ils ne servent absolument à rien. En effet, dans les tests SHL, la calculatrice est autorisée. Il s'agit plus d'exercices d’interprétation de données chiffrées (de type calculer le CAGR d'après ce tableau). En général ces tests sont donnés par les banques d'investissement et n'ont rien à voir avec des tests au format GMAT (sans calculatrice, donc des exercices de type calcul mentaux et problèmes)

    J'ai reçu un mail quelques jours plus tard pour me signaler que je ne passais pas au second tour (pas non plus une énorme déconvenue) sans détailler le résultat de mes tests ou me donner accès à mon score. C'est une étrange manière de gérer un processus de recrutement, il n'y a zéro transparence et on est mal orienté du début, à la fin donc.

    Interview Questions

    • Exemple de question du QCM numérique:
      - Une vanne A remplit un réservoir en 6h
      - Une vanne B remplit ce même réservoir en 3 jours

      En combien de temps le réservoir se remplit en ouvrant les 2 vannes simultanément ?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Paris (France)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Entretien très agréable, interlocuteur cherchant à mettre à l'aise et très bon conseiller, l'ambiance est détendue et sereine dans une salle de réunion mise à disposition avec toutes les commodités nécessaires. L'entretien porte plus sur le poste en lui-même et l'adéquation au profil du candidat qu'au CV et parcours suivi, afin d'en tirer la réelle motivation du candidat et son intérêt pour le poste et les missions proposées.

Your onsite interviews might be tailored to your interest so you should be thoughtful in your selection. After the phone screen, you're asked to submit a writing test for StratComm (if you applied to stratcomm). The onsite interview (superday) is mostly behavioral questions with some focus on your aforementioned interest (STAR questions in pressurized situation of special situations or financial statement literacy if it's financial comm).
