Dispute Consulting Analyst Interview

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Duff & Phelps in December 2011.

Interview Question – If company expected that they were going to grow at 5% over the next five years; what ways could you approve or disprove their forecast?   Answer Question

Transfer Pricing Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Duff & Phelps.

Interview Details First contacted them through career fair and applied online. Had a first round interview on campus and the second round interview was at their office. Finally, I received phone calls throughout the process.

Interview Question – I had a group business case question with other potential candidates. It involved working closely with other candidates at first, and then a written portion. Besides that, very behavioral interview questions because nobody expects undergraduate students to be fluent in this field.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They would have been an excellent company to work for. I simply received a slightly better offer elsewhere.

Dispute Consultant Interview

Dispute Consultant

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Duff & Phelps.

Interview Details Applied through campus recruiting, and received an email to schedule an on-campus interview. Met with a VP of Dispute Consulting and was asked questions both behavioral based and technical. I suggest knowing how to assess a stock and how you would go about investing in the right one. Be personable and expect to dig deep into your answers.

Interview Question – What are your weaknesses?
