    Submitting application online and received an email about a 30 Min Skype Interview. Had the video call a week after submitting my resume online.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Moelis & Co. (Boston, MA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Got the interview through someone else at the office that I had met prior to the interview. The interview was a phone interview with an associate and analyst that lasted for about 25 minutes. Definitely was more on the technical side than most interviews and kind of brushed over the typical "why banking" and "why Moelis" questions as you would expect.

    • Was asked a lot about my last internship in commercial real estate loans at Santander during my Freshman year summer, probably as a means of testing whether or not I actually did anything.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Moelis & Co. in November 2014.

    Interview

    Reached out through a contact to the office and set up a phone informational interview. After that they set up a more formal first round interview and asked me fit questions. I was coming from a non-target school for this particular office (though my school is target for NYC) and they were mainly interested in why moelis, why IBD, why our location/industry. Asked me to go into further detail on my previous internship experience and pushed me a tiny bit on the answers. Definitely know your resume cold.
