    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Stout Risius Ross, Inc. (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    3-4 hour interview process. The interview includes a 20 minute company presentation, a 30 minute technical assessment, a 30 minute writing assessment, 3 30 minute 2 person interviews, and finally a wrap-up.

    The technical assessment included 10-k questions, excel calculations, and logic questions. The writing assessment asked you to respond to an email from a client.

    The interviews were a mix of behavioral questions, walk me through your resume, and technical questions.

    Everyone was very nice during the interview and overall, it was a smooth process compared to similar firms.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Stout Risius Ross, Inc..

    Interview

    I was interviewed at campus. The company did not have any info sections. And there only are two days after I got interview notification and went to the interview.
    The interviewee was super easy and nice. The environment was comfortable and relaxed. He had a list of questions and asked me one by one. Then I had a bunch of time to ask questions about the recruiter's working experiences and job related concerns.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Had a 1-on-1 on campus interview where they asked mainly technical questions (what's FCF, valuation techniques, CAPM, etc) as well as describing your experiences thus far on your resume. I was invited back for another interview at their office for interviews and lunch from about 9:00am-3:00pm. Started off with a presentation on the company. There was a writing portion based on a business case where you explained your conclusion based on a set of assumptions. There was also a math portion. Each had to be completed in thirty minutes. Then there were three other interviews. One with an analyst and an associate, and two with a managing director. Seemed like an overall great group of people, but the environment seemed pretty boring and dull.

    On campus interview, half behavioral questions and half technical question. not too hard. The interviewer was friendly and helped guide me through questions that I was not sure of. Questions were simple like walk me through DCF, valuation methods, what is CAPM, what are the three basic financial statements. They said they would get back to me within a week or two but i haven't gotten any response yet and it's been 3 weeks.

    Interview

    2 people interviewing. Networking beforehand is probably helpful. Ask for an international interview. Research the company and be prepared to talk about your resume and why you want to work for SRR.
    1. Walk me through a DCF
    2. If you are in a race and pass a person in 2nd place, what place are you in?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Stout Risius Ross, Inc. (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Interviewed on campus with two interviewers. A woman and a man. The woman was a little bit cold but the man was very nice. There was only one behavioral question and the rest were all technical questions. I felt like I anwered those questions very well but one of the interviewers was very less-responsive. They told me that the decision will be made in the next two weeks after the interview. But three weeks has passed and I didn't receive any information from the company again.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me something about the financial satatements; How do you use IRR? Why we use DCF? If you purchase a equipment, what will happen on your financial statement? What impact the NWC? etc. Very technical questions.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied through on-campus recruiting, and my interview was on campus. The night before they had a "pre-night event," which was incredibly informal and was with my interviewers. So when I came in, my interviewer didn't even introduce themselves because I had already met them last night (which was awkward).
    Afterwards, my interviewer just fired off questions, one after the other. My interviewer was cold and unresponsive and my interview went by extremely quickly.
