    Client Group Summer Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AllianceBernstein.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through my campus career site and then had an on campus interview with an alumni. She was really nice and asked no technical questions. Everything was fit and she literally read the questions off a sheet of paper.

    Then I got invited to a SuperDay in NYC office. They were sort of annoying about reimbursing travel (they would not pay for gas on public transportation and didnt send a check for many months). The SuperDay was essentially the same interview over and over. All questions were off a sheet of paper, which is awkward for having a normal conversation. They were all fit questions, but the kind that are weirdly hard to answer because they are obscure and sort of dumb.

    There was also a group case interview that was easy
