    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Alvarez & Marsal (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    1 on campus interview then let you know the same day if you get the 5 hour interview at their office. Meet with a lot of members of the staff. It is all behavioral questions and conversation. They really emphasize looking for the right fit, but they seem very cliquey. I thought it went well and all the conversations were very upbeat and friendly; however, they did not offer me the position. The 5 hours of interviewing seemed excessive, and felt like a wast of time. It was very repetitive.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Alvarez & Marsal (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was very extensive. Interviews with every one in the group from associates up to all managing directors. It was resemblant of a super day at an investment bank, but overall, a great experience to learn more about the company and impress them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Alvarez & Marsal (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward. I had a phone interview with fit / behavioral questions. It was just one round and the process seemed pretty informal. I know that their full-time hiring process is very different -- so don't extrapolate from my interview for an internship.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Alvarez & Marsal (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was drawn out due to lack of availability by senior management. This should have been a red flag. You need to tell the firm that you want to be at the firm, this place is not for the faint of heart, or weak of mind. Buyer beware, seriously.
