    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Alvarez & Marsal.

    Interview Details

    My first interview with A&M was on campus. The interview was conducted by one of the company's partners who was very nice and easy to talk with. After a few weeks the company had me come to their office in Chicago where I interviewed with five other employees whom I would be working with. They generally asked similar questions about past experiences and my interest in the firm etc. All of them were very nice and easy to talk to as well.

    Interview Details

    Met with many people, senior and junior, in the office. They all took time to talk about their work, experiences and expectations. Everyone seemed intelligent, yet down-to-earth. Also, they really took the time to get to know me as a person and my likes/dislikes from a professional standpoint. Interview questions revolved around modeling certain scenarios and light accounting questions.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 months - interviewed at Alvarez & Marsal.

    Interview Details

    As an experienced hire I went through several phone screens with managers, directors and Managing Directors (Partner). I then had a lunch with a director and manager while in town, and was invited back for a formal onsite interview day, where I was interviewed by three different people - two directors and one Partner, and then went to lunch with a manager. It was a pretty typical interview process - where they wanted to get to know me, my experience and my ability to handle challenging customer interactions.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume for three days I got a phone interview from a director manager. It is my first interview in my life and I expect some personality questions but all questions are about my resume and very technology related. I dont think i did quite well. But it it definitely something I need to prepare for next interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult one is to ask me how can i use my personal strategy to contribute to firm's portfolio.   Answer Question
