    Corporate Finance Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Family connection with a Managing Director; sent them a resume in late January, heard back in late February, finally got lunch (with the MD and a Director) in late March, interviewed in late April. 30 min with a VP, 30 min with a VP, 30 min with a Director (but he left after 15 min to get a flight). They didn't volunteer me a 'yes' or a 'no' regarding an offer; after 2.5 weeks I e-mailed HR and got the boiler plate 'no offer' e-mail. HR has yet to reimburse the expense of getting to the interview.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    There was an on-campus interview, which was very straight forward and just asked you to go over your experience/skills. A few people got the 2nd round interview which consisted of 5 one-on-one interviews with VP's and above.

    Again, there wasn't many technical questions. It was merely going through your resume and triyng to relate it to their position. Overall, pretty easy interview but they took a while to get back.

    • No technical questions. Just why you want the job, how your experience will make you successful, etc.   Answer Question
