    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lincoln International.

    Interview

    My interviews at Lincoln International consisted of several rounds of in-person meetings with what seemed like every MD at the firm, including the CEO. One thing that became immediately apparent, based solely on the process, was that the folks at Lincoln are extremely thorough in making sure the candidate is the right fit. Culture, and the preservation of it, carries significant importance at Lincoln and it really does set this bank apart from others, both larger and smaller.

    Interview

    Following an on-campus information session, applicants applied through the on-campus career center. Some candidates were given 30-minute on-campus interviews and brought to a pre-interview dinner the night before. Following on-campus interviews, remaining potential candidates attended a superday in Chicago, where we were further interviewed and showed around Chicago. Offers were made following the day of interviews. Lincoln was extremely genuine throughout the interview process, and applicants were treated with kindness and respect

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lincoln International.

    Interview

    Came on campus for a 30 minute interview, with a second round at their offices in Chicago. Had talked on the phone once beforehand, for about an hour. Took us out to dinner the night before the interviews. Interview itself was with one associate and one director, they only really talked about my resume, no technical or behavioral questions at all. Interviewer was very conversational. Call back was later that same day to tell you whether or not you made it to the second round.

    Interview Questions

    • They really care about every test score and all grades you've gotten, starting from high school on up, which I thought was kind of ridiculous for an MBA-level position.   Answer Question
