    Valuation Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Palatine, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    Interview and hiring took about a week.
    Very unstructured laid back interview. It was the opposite of what you would read on any guide to interview for a job in corporate finance. The questions were focused more on character and personal life than in on finance.
    The owner leads the interview in a very honest, and friendly way.

    Interview Questions

    • No tricky or unexpected questions. As mentioned before, it wasn't the typical interview you read on the manual for corporate finance jobs. It was more of a friendly conversations with the senior partners. My guess is that they look for the right fit more than anything else.   Answer Question


    No room for negotiation was given.


    Business Valuation Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palatine, IL
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview


    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cambridge Partners & Associates (Palatine, IL) in June 2012.


    It is a family business company which has 20-25 employees. They have many financial services and they are planning to train the newly hired employee about many different valuation services. They prefer experience but it is not a must.

    Interview Questions

    • How do we calculate EBITDA from the financial statements? Which way is easy? Top down or bottom up?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary for the position and for what they are expecting from this position is not competitive at all. It is way under the average for Palatine, IL. They said that after the first year, the salary may increase.but it will not double for sure. Salary range is 25K-40K.
