Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

Interview

Applied online then received an email stating they wanted to do a phone interview. Phone interview was basic questions: what classes have you taken, what do you know about valuation, tell me about a time where you worked on a group project and what were the conflicts and outcomes, what do you know about D&P? Then got an email back saying they wanted to do an in person interview onsite. Met with 6 people over 3 hours. Still waiting to hear back.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps.

    Interview

    So far have only completed phone interview. Have not heard back yet. Interview was scheduled about 2 weeks after submitting my resume. Called by a director. Pretty laid back tone. Questions were basically what I expected. Technical and behavioral questions; I would say an even mix of the two. Definitely be comfortable with questions regarding DCF and the steps involved in it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (Provo, UT) in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was very relaxed. Only technical questions were asked. I got the interview through their campus recruiting. Just know your valuation models. They will ask you to compute either the WACC or discounted cash flows, but the recruiter will help you with it if you don't have a finance background.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (State College, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    On campus. Run me through your resume, three brief behavioral and then mostly technical. DCF, WACC, and equation of it, how you use it. How are the three financial statements linked together and how would you value a company, private, public? That was about it, would suggest you are a finance major, know your material well in order to succeed at this interview.

    Interview

    Easy interview, however seems to be significant turnover. People in HR are difficult to work with and take forever to respond. Do not interview here. Waste of time. I would not recommend.

    Interview Questions

    • Different ways to value a business.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Everyone seemed like they wanted out. Low morale and uninterested employees. Seem like analyst work for two years and leave.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through their website and heard back 2 weeks later. They called me for a thirty minute phone interview, and that's as far as the process has gone so far. Half was behavioral, half was technical, with a little time at the end for questions. Overall good experience, just be prepared to know your technicals and have stories ready on hand.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Duff & Phelps (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews; one phone interview and one office interview. VERY technical questions will be asked but they all ask the same questions from a question bank. I read 6 of the 7 phone technical questions on here before hand so that helped me get the office interview. Office interview had 3 different interviews followed by a case study where you work with the other candidates.
