    Junior Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Only involved a phone interview, no followup at the office.

    No hard technical questions, just covered basic corporate finance knowledge. Talked about the company, then walked through the experiences on my resume, then mostly just tried to gauge my interest in the role and more broadly finance in general.

    Phone interview only lasted about 25 minutes total.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (Chicago, IL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted fairly quickly and was brought into the office the next day for an interview. The people I met were kind and willing to listen as much as they talked. I recommend researching more about the company and the position you are applying for. You must know why you want to work there. It's been almost 3 weeks since my interview and received no feed back, even after they told me I'd hear back with good or bad news.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (Chicago, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Family connection with a Managing Director; sent them a resume in late January, heard back in late February, finally got lunch (with the MD and a Director) in late March, interviewed in late April. 30 min with a VP, 30 min with a VP, 30 min with a Director (but he left after 15 min to get a flight). They didn't volunteer me a 'yes' or a 'no' regarding an offer; after 2.5 weeks I e-mailed HR and got the boiler plate 'no offer' e-mail. HR has yet to reimburse the expense of getting to the interview.
