Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps in April 2015.

Interview

The interview process was largely conducted over the phone, as I was an East Coast college grad applying for a West Coast role. The interviewers were very cordial and professional, and we had a lot in common. They took care to analyze my skillset while also selling the company to me in a positive way.

    I was hired out of college. There was no on campus recruiting in my year. A buddy told me about it, I submitted my resume, had a call with a managing director and it turned out that it went well. They had me up for a super day and ended up offering me a job.

    I did a first round interview on campus. Then trekked to NYC for second round through Amtrak. Started at 10 in the morning with a group case interview then had about 5 more one on one interviews. The office is pretty nice; its the building across from Blackrock's building and has a bunch of big firms in there such as Morgan Stanley. The people are nice and cool to hangout with.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    DP came and recruited at my university. After initially getting turned down for an interview, I spoke with the recruiter on campus and asked them to reconsider me for the position. They did, and an interview was set up for later that week. At an info session before the interviews, DP told us to make sure we knew our technical information, because thats how most applicants get killed during the interview. Along with that, DP was definitely one of the toughest interviews I've had this season, asking very specific questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time, either in a professional or academic setting, where you had a public speaking opportunity and you failed. And then tell me how you learned from that and how you would not make that mistake again.   Answer Question
