Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Jefferies (New York, NY) in September 2016.

Interview

Rough. Asked every single detail on my resume and some questions even beyond the scope of my resume. I think the interviewer intentionally did that to see people perform under pressure.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jefferies (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process began with networking and on campus and telephone calls to bankers. The interview process was a one day interview, one technical and one behavioral. It was a fairly friendly interview that they tried to help me throughout the process to guide me to the right answers.

    Interview Questions

    • Why investment banking? Why Jefferies? Greatest strength and weakness.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Jefferies (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied Online, persisted in calling HR, received phone interview, nailed phone interview,attended Superday, performed successfully...great overall experience. Very well-run on their end from start to finish. Format for interviews in-person is 2 on 1s and also a 1 on 1...be prepared to react well under pressure. Must be confident and have a good hold on your story in order to succeed.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic technical questions involving understanding of financial Statements (involving Capex and depreciation and how it flows through each statement), stock pitch, macroeconomic questions, and a specific stock I would short and why. Also very important to understand why you want to work at Jefferies in particular as it is unique in comparison to many of the BB's on the street. Key advice is to mention the relatively flat structure ( Jefferies doesn't harbor arrogance as much as Goldman, JP, Morgan Stanley etc...but don't explicitly take knocks at these competitors, because many of your interviewers probably worked there! Good point to mention is that the company manages under 50 billion in assets and therefore able to operate independently of the government. Unlike many of the 'too-big to fail banks' Jefferies needs to stand on its own two feet.   Answer Question
