This ain't banking. Aint nobody got time to to tease your brain. Technical questions and get straight to the point. Plus drinks/coffee/dinner interview to make sure you're not a dork-for some shops. That's how it works.

They actually do typically ask a couple brain teasers, after some fairly basic technical questions. There is a post on here that goes over a number of questions very similar to what they asked me - OP should just use the search function to find it. Pretty easy to come across.

Can confirm brain teasers are common. Eastdil is one of the tougher places to interview.

That's a tough one man. What if my dad has a step wife who is a smoke show model? Can I tag team my step mom with him?

Have heard from others that Eastdil does ask brain teasers. I've also been asked brain teasers at several lenders and buy side firms

Would immediately and confidently answer "a fuck ton" if asked this in an interview.
