    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Houlihan Lokey in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with San Francisco Corporate finance team. HR rep I connected with seemed very unprofessional.

    On-campus interview: Easy conversation -- tell me about yourself, what are you interests, etc.

    Superday interview: Mix of behavioral and basic technical questions. One-on-one with a VP and then four-on-one with more junior people. One junior guy was very condescending. Interaction with him made what would've otherwise been a neutral experience a negative one.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Houlihan Lokey in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    combination of over the phone interview, in person interviews (4 back to back on a saturday), and written exam (1 hour, basic finance, accounting, valuation). the interviews are mostly technical or quantitative. none of them of meant to make you think too hard, it is mostly a test to see if you know the basics of valuation, rather than have a super high iq.
