    Financial Analyst Rotation Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    After applying, was contacted about a week later to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was 30 minutes long. The person I talked to did not really know what he was doing and instead of asking me questions he were given, he ended up just asking me random questions about my background. He was extremely detailed and wanted to know every detail about my work experience and background, so know your resume inside and out! I was told by a recruiter that the interview was going to be very casual and they just wanted to get to know me but I was given a case study, which completely caught me off guard, especially since I was applying for an FA role not a consulting job. That kind of bombed it for me.

    Nonetheless, the interviewer was extremely friendly and helped guide me through the case study.
