Real Estate Analyst Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps in September 2015.
Had a phone interview with a director from the company. It was fairly casual, and involved a lot of dialogue, as opposed to a strict Q&A format. The questions weren't really analytical, but instead mostly about my previous work background and why I specifically wanted to work for Duff & Phelps.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps.
The interview process is a standard one where you meet with the around 3-4 team members and talk about current interests in real estate, coursework/internships where you have worked and how it will help you for the real world. No technical questions besides asking about a DCF. More general questions.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (San Francisco, CA) in April 2014.
I interviewed with 2 managers. The interview was largely behavioral; why was I interested in real estate, what in my background showed prior real estate experience and interest? There were some technical aspects to the interview as well where they tested real estate knowledge.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (San Francisco, CA) in January 2011.
My initial communication was via e-mail to confirm I was still interested in the job I had applied for. However, I had applied for the same position several times within the past year (because there were constant re-posts of the opening). The most recent application was the impetus for my interview. However, one of the interviewers questioned why I did not apply for the position previously--major disconnect between human resources representative and the interviewers. Each interviewer asked vague questions; i.e. "Tell me about yourself", "What does your experience consist of", "What do you know about the company", "why are you interested in the position" etc. One interviewer, in particular, was argumentative--not sure if this was a test to see how I would react to a difficult personality or if that was just his particular personality. In short, though, he was a major d-bag---damn it feels good to vent that. The other two interviewers were legit; although they had little understanding of the industry outside of their company.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (Atlanta, GA) in September 2010.
The interview process involved a round of on-campus interview and a "super day" round of in-office interviews with the company recruiter and the real estate team consisting of 2 analysts, 1 vice president, and 1 managing director at the time. The questions consisted primarily of behavioral and experiential questions as opposed to purely technical questions. The people interviewing for the business valuation analyst positions were asked more techinical questions related to financial statement analysis and cash flow modelling. Though questions like those have shown up in the past, they did not come up during my interview.
- Give your assessment of the present condition of the commercial real estate market (regional or national - you pick) or capital markets in general as well as where you see them going over the near-term. 2 Answers

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (Chicago, IL) in July 2010.
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
