    Investment Banking Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university - interviewed at Perella Weinberg Partners in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    After the first round on campus, went through a super day with all members of the team. Because they are a relatively new firm they were keen on getting top tier university students. Seem to care about fit but at the same time all interviews have lots of technical questions.

    Interview Questions
    • I was probed on LBO modelling; knowing LBO model in and out a must.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Fairly smooth, they made a better than market offer, leaving little room for negotiation.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Perella Weinberg Partners in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    First two interviews were over phone -- standard behavioral and technical questions. Superday was at the office with 5 back-to-back interviews.

    Going through the Vault and WSO guides should be sufficient.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Perella Weinberg Partners in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    This was a strange interview. The interviewer didn't seem very prepared. She didn't ask me why I wanted to join the firm or why I wanted to do investment banking. She did ask me about some of the activities I was involved in. She also asked me some technical questions which weren't too hard.

    Interview Questions
    • I asked her how to value intangible assets, she responded by asking me how I would value them.   Answer Question

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at Perella Weinberg Partners in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    They gave me a phone interview and asked me your typical investment banking questions, nothing new there. Know your analytics, don't sound like a jerk and ask intelligent questions. If you don't know an answer, don't BS, that will get you nowhere. If you don't know then say that you dont know.
