Operations Specialist Interview

Operations Specialist
Boston, MA

I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman.

Interview Details – Heard of the job through a staffing agency. Standard interview -- overall impressions of professionalism count for a lot. Being on point, showing that you are someone with good time management and an excellent ability to execute tasks counts for a lot. The position is basically assimilating and carrying out the same set of tasks every day. The challenges therefore are not variable, however you need an excellent attention to detail and an ability to get your work done in a very time efficient manner.
Demonstrating that you're a fast learner (so as so quickly adopt the methodology) and have a rigorous work ethic will help get the job.

Interview Question – No unexpected questions.... describe project management skills, what your weaknesses are, when have you had experience working in a team etc.   Answer Question

Operations Specialist II Interview

Operations Specialist II
Boston, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman in October 2010.

Interview Details – I was a referral from a senior employee. I had two interviews in one sitting, each with two manager level people. One was fairly intense and that focused on prior experience, school, etc. The other interview was very laid back and casual. The focus of the second interview seemed to be to get a read on my personality.

Interview Question – I had only been at my previous job for 3 months. I saw that as a temporary opportunity and this position as a career start, but I was grilled on why I would expect BBH to hire me given I was jumping ship so soon into my other job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no opportunity to negotiate. It was a take it or leave it offer.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman in February 2011.

Interview Question – Tell us one thing about yourself that we wouldn't know now but would know in 6 months from now.   View Answers (2)
