Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lazard (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.

Interview

Went in without much of a corporate finance background, and got peppered with quantitative financial questions despite saying up front that my classes were mainly just economics. So kind of a struggle to keep going through all these concepts I hadn't heard of before.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Lazard (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    A lot of fit and mental math. Definitely need to know the basics of accounting and finance. They really want to know why IB because they expect you to stay on for 2 years. Very nice guys in general. Really have to show a passion for what you are applying to.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Lazard (London, England (UK)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Online application along with 4 questions requiring 250 word answers.

    Then online Numerical Test.

    Then online Verbal Reasoning Test.

    Then Invited to AC... Resit Numerical Test. Case study test - Compile an overview on a company given a lot of information. And a 2-1 HR interview, why lazard, etc.

    Then Invited to another AC this time with 5 other candidates....Lunch, followed by a group assessment, followed by a presentation. Group assessment - everyone was given an aquisition target and the group had to decide which was the best. Presentation - give presentation where you are IB, pitching to a client.

    Then invited back for last round, two 1-1 interviews, more fit interviews rather than technical.
