    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Rothschild (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was called by an HR rep about an interview and an associate followed up for a phone interview the following week. The phone interview lasted about an hour and it was mostly technical. Super technical actually, after asking about DCFs he went right in asking about WACC and CAPM and after-tax adjustments to enterprise value with more or less debt.

    30 minute phone screen followed by four rounds of in in-house interviews. Only one of the four was overtly technical, and like any investment banking interview you have to know your accounting. One of the four was a lawyer, which I found sort of strange.
