Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Citi in October 2009.

Interview

Didn't know much about investment banking, came from Math/Econ background so figured why not try it out? Waited in lobby for interview for very long time, they finally came out to get me 45 minutes later. Asked basic detailed accounting and valuation questions, questioned my commitment to banking given my lack of an i-banking internship. Pretty much told me they were looking for someone with more experience right there in the room. Didn't get 2nd round.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Citi (New York, NY) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Pretty standard. I had 1 first round interview on campus where the guy asked me pretty standard stuff. Some basic personal questions in addition to having some technicals - valuation methods, pitch a merger etc. Got called back the night of and had superday the next day. Had 2 one-on-one interviews for superday. Again, some valuation methods, including walking through a DCF and knowing the pros/cons of each valuation. There was also a stress test and that was rather awkward.
