    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AGC Partners in October 2020.

    Interview

    After submitting the app, there's an online test of accounting/IB Technicals, then there is a cover letter/questions to be answered, finally a first round interview. First Round questions were pretty typical IB technical first round questions, nothing too extreme.

    Interview

    Applied through my University job site and had two phone interviews costing of fit and technical questions and then was offered the job. It took a while to schedule the interviews but it all worked in the end.

    Investment Banking Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at AGC Partners (Boston, MA (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    AGC was not on top of things during the interview process. The process consisted of two phone interviews, an online IQ test, an online finance test, and a super day. For the phone interviews, the interviewers were either late or didn't even call. They really try to pressure you into accepting. Don't. There are huge red flags that should not be ignored.

    Interview Questions

    • First round phone interview: Walk me through your resume. Why IB. Why AGC. Walk me through a DCF. What sector do you follow the most. How would $10 of depreciation flow through the 3 financial statements. Difference between enterprise and equity value. If we were to give you an offer would you accept.
      Second round phone interview: Tell me about yourself. What are you looking for in an employer. Tell me about a recent deal AGC worked on.
      Online IQ test: Multiple choice. 15 minutes to complete as many of 50 questions as possible, with the intention of you not being able to finish it. It involves pattern recognition with shapes and some algebra.
      Finance test: Multiple choice. 60 minutes but it won't take the whole time. It involves things you learned in your finance classes and some questions about valuing tech companies that most people had no idea how to answer.
      Super day: Here you interview with mostly the partners, who are psychopaths. Mostly behavioral, but also some basic technical questions. Also some stuff about tech, like how to value tech companies that aren't profitable, the advantages of a SaaS business model.   2 Answers

    21 Oct 2020 – CEO

    Our bad on the late or missed interviews. The banking team is flat out and obviously had a few misses here. That said, we made 9 offers and got 9 acceptances. We gave our summer intern analyst candidates a month to make a decision, so that they could check out other opportunities. With off cycle analyst hires, we typically do IQ / technical and Power point tests and 2-4 interviews. With these candidates, we are looking for individuals who have already done their searches and are ready to move quickly, so it’s a different situation and we’re looking for a quick decision. Hope that helps.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AGC Partners (Boston, MA (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Horrible. After some back and forth with HR and a C-level employee, I scheduled an interview for the Executive Assistant to CEO role. I showed up for the interview, waited in the Reception area without being greeted for 20 minutes and was immediately told that another admin on the team "took the role" and that now I would be interviewing to be an Administrative Assistant for the Marketing team.

    It didn't seem to phase HR that this was a huge waste of my time that that this information could have been relayed to me. To me, this shows that they don't respect their assistants or what they have to offer.

    I sent an email to the C-level employee after to express my frustrations and was told that other candidates who were scheduled for later in the week were advised but they CHOSE not to tell me because of "timing" (as in, they would rather me come out, skip work, to tell me face-to-face than send a simple message because of the "unexpected promotion this morning").

    Interview

    Phone Interviews with a super day. Phone interviews were conducted with various members of the firm and super day interviews provided additional access to people at the firm. Most of the questions were fit questions with a few basic investment banking questions. It was a fairly standard process.
