    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Legg Mason (Baltimore, MD) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Met with HR briefly, then met with two different departments. Everything was one on one. They went over my resume, asked about my experience, and talked about projects I would do. They went over their background and how long they had been with the company. Very nice, down to earth people. Then I asked questions about the company's culture and what they do day to day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Legg Mason (New York, NY) in March 2008.

    Interview

    Preliminary interview with HR associate, then AVP of group, then Supervisor. Position was entry-level, so questions were very general - more catered to explaining function of group. Environment was somewhat casual - no ties - and some employees were lightly socialising at others' cubicles. Position was also described as having a high turnover rate, which was a bit off-setting.

    Interview Questions

    • None (see above - interview was for entry-level position). Supervisor went over some client-service based scenarios to provide picture of day-to-day experience.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Legg Mason.

    Interview

    First round was a phone hookup where 3 people asked me mainly investment related questions. I passed that and was invited to fly down to their office.
    In the 2nd round I was asked to prepare a case study (selected by them) in advance and do a presentation. They let me finished the presentation uninterrupted and then started firing questions at me. Once that was over they left the room and invited other members of the team to interview me. Another 3 senior members came in and ask investment related Q's.
