Please describe the interview / hiring process.
I met a managing director at a networking event and exchanged business cards. I followed up and was invited in for an interview about 2 months after my initial meeting. The first interview was a 3-on-1 interview with mostly behavioral/personality questions. I sat down with an entry level analyst, a managing director and an office manager. The second interview was about two weeks later and consisted of 2 separate 3-on-1 interview with various managing directors and analysts. This interview was more technically intensive but still consisted of mostly behavioral/personality questions. I was asked surface level questions about direct and relative valuation.
In general, the culture at HFF is extremely professional. The employees do not mess around when they are at work and take their jobs very seriously. Anybody working or interviewing at HFF needs to check their ego at the door and be a team player and work extremely hard. HFF aims to be the best at what they do so they will only recruit and hire the best to work for them
