- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Merrill Lynch in January 2013.
Process took a few weeks. Interview was really straightforward with nothing too technical.
- I had a portfolio with me and the interviewer asked me to sell her the portfolio. Answer Question
- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
The process took 1 day – interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA) in December 2010.
Met with three people, one person from the advisor team where I would be interning, a current intern, and a VP. Very nice and casual, laughed some, they told me a lot about the position and just asked me about previous and current positions/clubs on my resume. "Name a time where you handled a difficult client".
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Merrill Lynch (New York, NY) in October 2008.
After the resume drop, I was called by the Financial Advisor's current intern to schedule an interview. At the interview, the FA said "okay, this is how this interview works. I will ask you questions until you get an answer wrong." He then proceeded to ask me statistics, multiplication, division, and equity/debt questions with about three seconds to answer. i think a business major who could do 54 x 69 rapidly in their head would have done alright, but as this was my first business interview, I was definitely caught off guard.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Merrill Lynch (New York, NY) in January 2008.
As a freshman in college, most of the questions were fit/behavioral type. Nothing out of the extraordinary. There are lower standards when you are young in college!
