Alvarez & Marsal Interview Stage

Alvarez & Marsal will begin their hiring process with a short phone, where you will be asked about your basic skill set. In the event, the screener is satisfied you will then be invited to take pre-hiring tests, where you will prove that you have the skills you claimed in your CV and during the screening call. Upon successful completion of the Alvarez & Marsal pre-hiring test, you will be invited to several rounds of sit-down interviews starting with HR and ending with the hiring manager.

Alvarez & Marsal Assessment Centre Proceedings

Assessment Centres are becoming more and more popular among recruiters, because they are considered to offer more accurate tools for measuring job candidates’ aptitude for applied positions. Assessment Centres are preferable because, in addition to estimating applicants’ skills and personalities on tests and interviews, they require them to participate in other activities as well. By asking job applicants to participate in case studies, group discussions, in-tray exercises and social events, recruiters create their exact personality and professional profiles unavailable through simply testing and interviewing. Traits that assessors seek to evaluate in job candidates are adaptability, commercial awareness, analytical thinking, decision-making and leadership, to list only a few of them. When the assessment event comes to an end, recruiters sum up points given to each participant and invite for a final interview only those of them who have the highest score.

Why Do Alvarez & Marsal Employers Offer the Aptitude Test?

Employers want to ensure that they hire the right sort of people who possess the cognitive abilities necessary to perform their roles well. The Aptitude Test allows employers to ascertain whether job candidates possess effective problem-solving skills, the ability to learn new skills quickly, integrate new information and deal with ambiguity in decision-making.

What kind of questions will I have on the Alvarez & Marsal calculation test?

On the Calculation Test, you will have questions that will show a mathematical equation. Each equation will have an omitted number signified as the question mark (?). The question with the equation will remain on the screen for a specified amount of time. After its expiration, you will be redirected to another screen, where you will put in the value of the omitted number. This screen will also be displayed for a short amount of time. Calculating quickly is, therefore, important on the Calculation Test.

What is the STAR format?

The STAR format is a method to answer interview questions. When you are asked situational questions on your interview, it is better to answer them according to the STAR format, because this behavioural technique makes your answer more coherent and comprehensive. Employers like to use the STAR format on interviews due to its higher degree of predictability of applicants’ future performance at work. The acronym STAR stands for Situation, Task, Action and Result. To follow the STAR format in your answers means the following:

  • Situation: You need to tell about a challenging situation that you had to resolve in your former workplace.
  • Task: Tell your recruiters what you tried to achieve in that situations, what tasks you assigned to yourself or your team. When elaborating on this, emphasise what motivations you had to fulfil in the assigned tasks.
  • Actions: Describe in detail what actions you performed to carry on the tasks. Explain to your recruiters why you decided to undertake these actions and what were the alternatives that you discarded.
  • Results: Here you need to elaborate on the results you achieved and whether you managed to resolve the problem you initially faced.

Tell your recruiters also what you learned from your experience.

If you follow the STAR technique while answering the interviewers’ situational questions, you will sound more organized, persuasive and clever. To learn more about the STAR interview method, please consult our resources.
