    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Piper Jaffray (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Straight forward and friendly tone. Hiring manager was great. Questions were aimed towards personal and resume answers. Awkward phone call with multiple people with pauses but overall was a good experience.

    Investment Banking Associate II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Piper Jaffray (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    the interview process was pretty straight forward involving an initial telephone screen with mostly behavioral questions with some previous transaction experience followed up with an in-person interview that took approximately 4 hours. Met with a number of people throughout the vertical in 2 on 1 format where most questions were past experience/ transaction based. There was little valuation work as the expectation was, coming in as an experience hire, that the fundamental finance knowledge was there. Pretty much hit the ground running once I joined.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Piper Jaffray (San Francisco, CA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I bet the company at a career fair and I was flagged for an interview on campus. They asked a lot of quantitative questions ranging from simple questions like calculate a DCF, how do you value a company, what are the different financial statements, to harder questions like which line items are effected by depreciation. There was also a behavioral aspect to it.
