    Transfer Pricing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (Boston, MA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had my first round interview with two people from the transfer pricing department and it was basically a run down of my resume. They were really friendly and I felt like the company culture environment was very relax. I'm still waiting to hear back from there, however. Definitely know your resume well and know what transfer pricing is.

    Valuation Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Incredibly seamless interview process. Received an e-mail from HR to schedule a first round phone interview with two managers. This first interview was mostly based on my resume with some behavioral "tell me about a time" questions. A few days after I was again contacted by HR to schedule a time for me to fly up to the office for another interview with the same people I spoke with over the phone. Again, this interview was mostly behavioral, with the hour and a half split between the two people.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    One phone screen; in person interview. Nothing too unexpected - technicals were basic questions about the 3 financial statements. Fit questions dealt with previous experience and the relevance of coursework. Very nice people. Would definitely have worked there, but I found an opportunity that was a better fit for me personally

    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.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.
