    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bessemer Trust Company (New York, NY) in March 2010.

    Interview

    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.

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

    Interview

    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.
