Duff & Phelps: Dispute Consulting Analyst - Interview Help

Hey gang:

I have a phone interview coming up for an analyst position in Duff & Phelps' Dispute & Legal Management Consulting Group. I've seen prior threads on this but they were all for valuation and IB analyst positions, not for the Dispute Consulting Analyst position.

BNP Paribas SuperDay

Has anyone had a superday at BNP yet in New York??

If so, when did you go in? What questions did they ask?

Thanks alot. I have been in touch with BNP a lot and I was wondering if they had conducted any superdays already, possibly for different divisions maybe.

I appreciate any responses.

JP Morgan IB Risk

Hey all. I just searched throughout the site and found only outdated and unhelpful info on the IB Risk analyst program at JP Morgan. What questions should I expect at a first round interview?

Distressed Advisory Firm - Interview !!

Hi. I am a long time reader, first time poster and I come to you seeking some counsel. I tried doing a search but nothing on point came up.

I have an interview coming up with a distressed advisory boutique firm for a high yield/distressed analyst position and I want to be as prepared as possible. I have no experience in this field really. From what I gathered, the questions are to be more geared toward the applicant's background but the analyst position obviously entails both quantitative and qualitative work so that is of concern to me.

My undergraduate major was Econ but I have been out of school for a few years and in a different field. Thus, I am more than rusty on my basic financials.

A little taken aback by the off-cycle interview questions for BB.

Just got off the phone with a vp hiring for an off cycle internship at a BB. These were some of the questions:

Tell me about a time where you had to source information from multiple sources

Tell me about a time when you had to be respectful to someone older than you such as a professor or parent

Tell me about a time when you had to share information with a team

Credit Strategy Interview help

Hey everyone -

I am interviewing for a Credit Strategy analyst position at a non-BB (but large international bank - think SocGen/RBS) which is a strong debt player. Did try searching but "credit strategy" isn't a very popular term on these forums.

Comps in a tough market

I was asked this question recently, and just replied with a BS answer.

1. How do you determine a true value using comparables when the market is so sluggish....i.e, multiples are depressed. This was an M&A banker working on sell-side advisory work.

Testimonials:

Just got the new technical guide. By far much better than vault. Very detailed (80+ pages) with charts, graphs, etc. I'll be reading this at least once this summer in prepping for fall interviews. — banker88

The WSO technical guide is awesome! I landed a FT Citi IBD job with it! — R.S.

Just bought the guide, and I can say that it really goes into a lot of detail to introduce and expand on certain concepts. - Sisak

I bought the Vault guide and there is a lot of fluff, this guide is straight to the point. Question, explanation, sample response. It was amazing. Going into my interviews and superdays, I almost never got a single question that I hadn't seen before, or wasn't able to work my way through. — Scott M.

The new Wall Street Oasis Technical Guide provides questions and easy to understand answers for all the questions I typically ask when interviewing a candidate. The additional questions expand the guide, and the new charts are an added bonus for easily remembering the crucial concepts. If a student really knows all the questions in this guide, they are sure to nail the technical section of their interview. — Vice President, Goldman Sachs, Sales and Trading

I bought it as well! Pretty awesome simple format...walks you through the answers and then gives you an example of what exactly what to say in an investment banking interview. Breaks it down from beginner to intermediate to advanced questions for investment banking interviews and S&T. — slkyswtbllr05

I'd like to thank you - I just bought the investment banking interview guide and it's absolutely amazing. — Goon

The book is fantastic! It's got the questions and answers that you need to know. It also has a very easy to use format... — Kaba Modern

Thumbs up on technical interview guide. It was definitely helpful. — Jamie Dimon (WSO username, not the actual Jamie Dimon)

This guide is a great resource for anyone going into investment banking interviews. The questions in this guide helped me successfully land the full-time job I have today! I can honestly say after preparing the questions in this guide I almost never received a question I hadn’t seen before or wasn’t ready to answer due to the suggestions the WSO guide provided. — 1st Year Analyst, Goldman Sachs, Sales and Trading

Just got the technical guide today. Nice breakdown of beginner/intermediate/advanced questions depending on your background. — Mez

I didn't read Wall Street Oasis Technical and Behavioral Interview guides until after my first year in my MBA program, and frankly they contained everything I had spent the last year learning to get a job on the Street. I highly recommend them to anyone preparing for an interview, finance or other. It's a heck of a lot cheaper than an MBA (not to mention faster and more to the point). — MIT Sloan MBA, Class of 2009

The technical investment banking interview guide is great. Detailed. — Fudbox

I have found the guides to be very thorough and highly relevant for individuals looking to prepare for finance interviews and internships. - Junkbondswap

I have purchased the Technical, Behavioral and Networking guides. All of them are great! I bought the Vault guides for $25 or $30 or whatever, but I think these guides are actually better. — NewIBHire27

The WSO Technical Guide has been extremely helpful. It's written in an easy-to-read format with plenty of examples and simple explanations. Being from a non-target with minimal background in finance, the guide acted as my bible throughout the SA recruiting period. Without it, I would not have been able to land the offers I did. It was instrumental to my success. — Arnav G.

I just wanted to commend WSO for producing such a great product. I bought the WSO technical interview guide for finance interviews and it was easily the best 30 dollars I have spent in a long time. I attend a liberal arts school and was able to land a job with Prudential Fixed Income Investment Management, who usually only hires finance/accounting majors. — Marc

My sister gave me you technical interview prep guide when I was a junior at Lehigh - coming from a "non target school", I blew away interviewers with what I'd learned and got an internship (and subsequently a full time offer) from UBS as a high yield desk analyst. — Rekha

The first time I heard about Wall Street Oasis and their interview guides was following a first round summer analyst Investment Banking interview. I was interviewing with an analyst who came from a non target school just like me and in asking what resources he recommended in prepping for the Super Day, the only thing he suggested was the Wall Street Oasis technical interview guide. He said every question in his interview was covered in that guide and thanks to Wall Street Oasis, I was extended a summer analyst spot for that IB program. An alum at that bank actually said my interviewers thought I was very technical. Out of all the online interview prep resources I worked with, the best had to be Wall Street Oasis' technical guide. It is honestly the only resource you'll need in preparing for any finance interviews. — Sabrina

Didn't think I would get a response. I come from a non-target in NYC and used your interview guides to prepare for my superday at a BB. I received an SA offer the very next day. So huge props to Wall Street Oasis and thanks again! — Pete

Interview questions: What would you do if a person on your team was not pulling their weight?

How do you answer and approach the question: what would you do if you had a person on your team who is not pulling their weight? I'm just wondering what is a good answer to this question.
