    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at GCA (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    First round interview lasted 30 minutes with one associate and one analyst. Standard first round banking interview. Was asked to walk them through the three financial statements and explain how they are connected. What are the valuation methods? How would you value a company in its early stages that has not yet monetized their business? I responded using a comp of EV/subscribers or EV/users or something along those lines. He said thats exactly what he was looking for. Found out the next day through email that I was invited to a superday. Superday was at their office in NY. I had six 30 minute interviews, 4 of which were 1on1 and 2 of which were 2on2. Not as many technicals during the super day but some from the associates and analysts I met. Everyone was really nice who I met, and I had some great convos with some of the upper level guys. Found out a couple days later via email that they decided to offer the position to a different candidate.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GCA in September 2009.

    Interview

    Had a quick phone interview. Questions were all background, not so much behavioral. The conversation went OK but was admittedly nothing spectacular. Also asked me some basic stock market questions/news related, standard fare. He was polite, said I'd hear back if they were interested; unfortunately I didn't hear back.
