Corporate Finance Analyst Interview

Corporate Finance Analyst
Chicago, IL

I applied through an employee referral and 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.

Interview Question – The second VP asked me to divide 3,500,000 by 10,000 mentally, on the spot.   Answer Question

Vice President Interview

Vice President
Chicago, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in February 2011.

Interview Question – As a senior hire, was a very standard interview, so not much unexpected.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much in terms of negotiation, as it was 2011 and we were still in a recession. I knew my market value, and they more or less matched it.

Real Estate Analyst Interview

Real Estate Analyst
Chicago, IL

I applied through college or university and 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.

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