- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took a week – interviewed at Applied Value (New York, NY) in February 2014.
Had a meeting before the interview, along with an SAT-style math test (not particularly difficult). The interview itself was a brief 10-minute conversation with usual fit / behavioral questions, followed by a straightforward 20-minute business case that seemed to emphasize idea generation and thoroughness over the quantitative side.
