Does anyone have experiences with the working student interview at Bain? They only mentioned there would be some "small tests" but didn't give me further instructions. Recommendations on preparation are very appreciated!

As a Bain employee, I have never heard of this. Could you provide any more details and I might be able to give you any insights based on my experience?

Thank you very much. Actually they just told me it would be a short interview (no case study) with some smaller tests. So my question is, which kind of tests they could mean in this context. — Marianne on Nov 05, 2018
