Business Valuation Associate Interview

Business Valuation Associate
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Deloitte in October 2013.

Interview Details – First round interview was over the phone with a manager at the group. Conversation revolved around my interest in valuation, industries that I followed etc. A behavioral round with emphasis on why I decided to enter the field and why I was interested in Deloitte in particular.

Final round at the office with 4 managers. A technical round with basic questions on valuation methods (how will you value a private company, what market multiple would you use to value a bank), financial statement analysis (how are patents recognized on the balance sheet, what ratio would give you an indication of the firm's ability to pay of it's interest expense etc.).

Valuation Interview

Valuation

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Deloitte.

Interview Details – The interview process was pretty typical of big 4 firms. I went through the on-campus interview process, which started with 1 interview with a Partner and if you make it past that, you have a series of 4-5 30min interviews in the office. The interviews are mainly for fit/compatibility, if you made it that far, you're generally qualified for the position and they want to see your personality.

Interview Question – There are typically some technical questions that throw some people off.   Answer Question

Business Valuation Intern Interview

Business Valuation Intern

Interviewed at Deloitte

Interview Details – The interview was very casual. It was 4 back to back interviews that were focused on behavioral questions. They wanted to see if I was passionate about finance and how I had shown that in my past experience. The more technical questions came up later in the interviews but they were nothing too difficult.

Business Valuation - Winter Internship Interview

Business Valuation - Winter Internship
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Deloitte in September 2013.

Interview Details – Hour-long interview (two 30-minute face-to-face interviews with directors/managers). From what I could tell, it didn't seem like a true consulting role - Deloitte Valuation seemed more like advisory/assurance. Interview was relatively comfortable and relaxed, though they do ask a lot of questions. I thought I did amazing but they must have had some good candidates. Go in knowing about the business, read the website's case studies, know the financial formulas and you'll do fine.

Interview Question – How to calculate Terminal Value? WACC? Cost of Equity? Describe Comparable Companies Analysis   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Business Valuation Intern Interview

Business Valuation Intern
Washington, DC

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in April 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was rather simple. I applied through a friend. The HR representative then called me and asked me the general primary interview questions. Strictly behavioral. She notified me that they would be in touch. Then I had a phone interview with two of the Directors at the office. They asked about my background and qualifications, but not stumping/hard/challenging questions. Two weeks later I received the offer.

Interview Question – The most difficult question I received was: "What do you expect to learn/accomplish from this internship" - easy   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation phase

Financial Business Valuation Associate Internship Interview

Financial Business Valuation Associate Internship
Philadelphia, PA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Deloitte in November 2012.

Interview Details – 1st round: Technical phone interview with senior associate; 30 minutes
Need to know: DCF Valuation (all of the steps and what each step represents), Common multiples (i.e. EV/EBITDA) and how to calculate them. It is a very technical interview, may vary with your experience (major, work, extra curricular). This is the step where they weed out those without some technical background.

2nd round: Two 30minute interviews (one with two senior associates, another with the principal. The first interview was largely behavioral and the second was like a conversation. With the principal, I mainly asked him questions about his position, experience (i.e. challenges associated, typical day) and the position itself (learning opps, process). With the two senior associates, it was behavioral question (i.e. difficulty working with a team). The whole interview process was casual and very conversational.

After 2nd round, follow up was 1.5 weeks later with offer.

Interview Question – Consider two companies, exactly the same, but one is private and the other is public, will the price be the same?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, offer was competitive
