    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bessemer Trust Company in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The face to face interview was pretty easy. I met with someone in HR, then with 2-3 people in the department. There were open and friendly. There was EXTENSIVE testing of my software skills. The agnecy that I used was VERY thorough in making sure that I know my stuff as far as software was concerned. Once on the job most of the skills that I tested on were not needed. But it was absolutely required that I really know my stuff in ordder to get an interview with the firm.

    The background check was VERY thorough.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I advise that you ask for what you want. If you're good they'll pay you. This firm prides itself on only hiring the best. They understand that you have to pay if you want good people.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Bessemer Trust Company in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a very basic interview. No tough questions and no knowledge of prior experience is required. There are 2 sets of interviews, both of which are fairly easy. There were only your basic, standard questions. The people and the culture is what I would consider one of the best in the industry.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a situation in which you were required to work in a group setting and describe some conflicts, if any.   Answer Question
