I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Evercore Partners.
The interview process is pretty standard. There are a number of on campus presentations and after the presentations there is a resume drop. The recruiting team then selects a number of people to interview on campus. After a 30 minute first round interview, the firm then selects a handful of final candidates to come to New York for a superday. The superday consists of ~6 interviews with various levels of the firm.
The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Evercore Partners (New York, NY) in December 2008.
First of all, I'd like to note that this was not a formal process, as I did not apply directly through my school's career services. Instead, I received this opportunity from contacting a friend who worked at EverCore before. The interview process was pretty basic: a mix of behaviorial and technical. They seem to stress the behaviorial more. Maybe this is because I had little experience working in finance, as I was an engineer before. The process took over two days, as the first day was mostly behaviorial (why finance? why this group? why not engineering? etc.) The second was technical (walk me through a DCF, pitch me three stocks, how does M&A affect stockprice, etc.) I thought I did pretty well, guess they weren't impressed.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Evercore Partners in October 2010.
Applied online, initially started off with a telephone interview. The interview process included technical and fit questions so as to recognize if there is a fit with the rest of the team. Prepare for technical and accountancy questions well. Also be prepared to give examples of areas you have excelled in like college or in athletics. I was asked about pitching a stock and also running through a Discounted Cash Flow. Overall not much communication from one interview to the other and a little disorganized.
Your feedback has been sent to the team and we'll look into it.
