    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY (US)
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Jefferies & Company.

    Interview Details

    Referred by an employee. First round phone interview then superday at their New York office. Two rounds of interviews with two Jefferies' employees. Heard back within a few days that I didn't get an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Basic technical questions asked (accounting, valuation methods). Some questions they asked merely to throw you off (What are your 5 greatest weaknesses, why don't you have a 4.0 GPA) so be prepared for that. Have a few stories where you showed teamwork, leadership, and being able to respond to senior management.   Answer Question
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview
