    Equity Research Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at FBR.

    Interview Details

    1st round on-campus interview. Interviewer was a sr. ER analyst. Very friendly and relaxed. Lasted about 40 minutes.

    Offered on the spot to have me in for a second round interview down at their DC office. I believe they make most candidates take some sort of financial aptitutde test to see how closely you have actually been following financial markets (if at all).
