Bain first round - is behavioral a component? A recruiter scheduled a first round and said it will consist of two 40-minute cases; does that mean it's only cases? Experienced hiring here, if that matters (North America)

No behavioral in first round for me either. Rationale is that they’re trying to eliminate bias in their recruiting process.

Be prepared for both. In my experience may do some intros/quick questions, then case for 20-30 mins, then time for questions/open ended interviewing with the remaining time

You may get a quick softball behavioral question to break the ice in those cases, but it's not the focus at all

Does anyone have guidance on timing job offers? Companies move at different paces in the interview process. I know it’s good to have competing offers for negotiating too. I want to avoid a situation where I get an offer from one company but they only give x amount of time for me to accept and I’m still waiting to hear back from another company. One way is to inform the companies I have an offer or am interviewing with another company to speed things up. Any other tips?
