Please describe the interview / hiring process.
The entire recruiting process was incredibly quick, smooth, and efficient. I applied online. HR reached out to schedule a phone screen with typical questions like "walk me thru your resume / tell me about yourself", "why A&M?", and "why valuation?"

A week later, I had a 30 min technical phone interview with a manager. He asked common valuation questions about DCFs (FCF, terminal value, WACC) and comps. WSO's technical interview guide is an amazing resource so definitely check that out if you haven't already.

The technical round also included a 60 minute off-site two-part Excel modeling test. Part one tested your understanding of accounting. Part two required you to build a DCF with given assumptions.

After my technical round, I had an on-site superday a week later for roughly three hours. Here, I met with six people, back-to-back: the HR manager who recruited me, the manager who previously interviewed me in the first round, a senior associate, another manager, a director, and a managing director. The superday was focused mostly on behavioral / fit questions and only the senior associate and manager asked me quick technical questions.
