Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cornerstone Research (Washington, DC) in December 2016.

Interview

Interviewed on campus and then D.C. office. Reasonably difficult interview, 5 or so case interviews involving past cases that the firm has worked on. Pretty important to have basic knowledge of econometrics and regressions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cornerstone Research (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First round was a 30 minute skype interview. Walked in to start the case 6 minutes after my time slot started (person before me finished late). Case wasn't too bad. Got to the behavioral interview and the interviewer goes, "Sorry, we don't have time for your behavioral. Have a nice day." Left me rather upset and with a very bad impression because I'm certain it is a fantastic firm.

    Interview

    15 minutes of behavioral questions and a short 5-10 minute case. Interviewer was friendly, but in the end told me the correct approach to the case, which I didn't use. Heard back the second day of interview that I did not get to the next round.

    The interview was friendly and guided me a lot. There were a couple of behavioral questions, and then a short economic case. I didn't know the legal or economic aspects that much, but he understood and defined things for me as needed. Overall it was enjoyable and I learned a lot.
