    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Burgiss in April 2017.

    Interview

    I got a phone interview for brief overview of my resume. Then I was invited for an interview. The recruiter who interview me was horrible. He was rude and kept asking me basic finance question in rapid session. I don't see interpersonal action there. You also have to take an easy test.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Burgiss (Hoboken, NJ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I received the interview invitation 10 dyas after application and I went to the office in Hoboken which is clean and organized. And the office has a great view of Hardson River and it is located next to a river park. The whole process was about 45 minutes. I first met with the intern associate and she asked several general interview questions like tell me about yourself and why you apply for this job. And then I meet with their analysit manager. He asked questions about private equity, fund , buyout and financial reports. And finally, I was reuired to take a 30 minutes test. It is all about simple math calculations and verbal test. It is not difficult at all. Then, I received the offer one week after my interview.
