Please describe the interview / hiring process.
The process consisted of hour long phone calls with members of the team ranging form VP to Senior VPs. The interviews focused mostly on deals I'd worked on and included some technical questions focused on debt, accounting and M&A math (my focus is M&A). A lot of the phone call also focused on whether you'd invest in the company in your deal or not. After the phone rounds, the team selected a number of candidates to perform a modeling case study at home. This involved a valuation of a public company and full bottoms up flexibility, a DCF, Comps, Precedents and debt schedule impacts. If you executed well enough, the team invited their finalists in for an in-person case study presentation. This final segment included studying reports and financials for 3 hours and deciding where you'd invest in the company's capital structure. Once you were done, the team would come in and you'd have a chance to present your case while answering questions regarding scenarios/outcomes that were possible to see if you could back your assessment up.
