    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Greenhill & Co..

    Interview

    I had a first round interview in August of 2016, and it was 95% technical. After mentioning that I knew multiple members of their team, the two interviewers that I was speaking with started to probe me with questions about Accretion / Dilution analysis & LBOs. They also told me that I would be interviewing with two team members, and provided me with their names, but when the interview actually occurred it was with two members of their team that I had never even heard of.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Greenhill & Co. (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had the worst experience with them-
    -Phone screen with a first year analyst who had just started with the firm 2-3 months ago and seemed completely lost. Another senior analyst was supposed to join him but he was not available
    -Spoke with the first-year analyst for 10 mins (Why banking and had just started to answer the different types of valuation question) when he said he had just received an email and had to run and wanted to reschedule as the interview had been going great
    -Emailed to reschedule for the night after, but an hour before that interview emailed again to say he had to reschedule again and this time for a day that didn't work for me. When I replied back to express my unavailability, he never emailed back
    -I had to follow up a week later to him replying that the role had been filled
