Please describe the interview / hiring process.

Applied online. Without scheduling, was called and interviewed via the call. Asked about DCF, why PWP, why IBD, recent deals and news. Got through the first round and was invited to the second round after 1-2 weeks in their london office. Second round consists of a math test without calculator and 3 one-to-one interviews with current associates. The interviews were technical, requiring detailed knowledge in finance and accounting. For example, how can you manipulate the earning figures of a company and how would it affect CF (ANS: trade credits, depre. etc). Other questions like how would you introduce PWP to your family member.
