    Valuation Analyst Interview

    Interview Details

    It took them a very long time to initiate the phone interview. The interviewer seemed bored when he interviewed me, and the so-called "technical questions" were quite silly.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    Starts out with a phone interview; pretty simple questions, just getting to know you. Then a 4 round 30 minute each in-office interview. Each interviewer asked you some finance-based and behavior-based questions and then allowed you to answer questions of your own. They asked questions about your resume as well.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Duff & Phelps.

    Interview Details

    First contacted them through career fair and applied online. Had a first round interview on campus and the second round interview was at their office. Finally, I received phone calls throughout the process.

    Interview Questions
    • I had a group business case question with other potential candidates. It involved working closely with other candidates at first, and then a written portion. Besides that, very behavioral interview questions because nobody expects undergraduate students to be fluent in this field.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    They would have been an excellent company to work for. I simply received a slightly better offer elsewhere.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through on-campus recruiting. I was contacted by the company-wide HR person via email who scheduled a phone screening with a director at the local office. Followed up with marathon interview with four people: started with two people with my position, then two separate interviews with vice presidents, and a final interview with a director (we rotate who does interviews at the office, so you could be interviewed by a different level of employee, but usually it is around five people.) I received an offer approximately one week later.

    Real Estate Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process involved a round of on-campus interview and a "super day" round of in-office interviews with the company recruiter and the real estate team consisting of 2 analysts, 1 vice president, and 1 managing director at the time. The questions consisted primarily of behavioral and experiential questions as opposed to purely technical questions. The people interviewing for the business valuation analyst positions were asked more techinical questions related to financial statement analysis and cash flow modelling. Though questions like those have shown up in the past, they did not come up during my interview.
