Transaction Representative Interview

Transaction Representative
Colorado Springs, CO

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in October 2013.

Interview Details – Received an almost immediate response to my resume submission. Recruiter set up a phone interview. Recruiter was late calling me at our set appointment time.

Interview Question – Interview was mostly a regurgitation of my resume. A few questions about why I chose to apply for TRP and if I was being "choosy" in the companies I apply to. The most difficult question being the "behavior" questions..."tell me about a time when..."   Answer Question

Contracted Administrative Assistant Interview

Contracted Administrative Assistant
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in June 2013.

Interview Details – Had to reschedule a live video interview a few times as the hiring manager is located in Baltimore.The interview was an hour long. It took a long time for TRP to make a commitment. Had multiple interviews (three): HR, Administrative Supervisor, Administrative staff, Sr. V.P., V.P. ; the second round was over an hour long. TRP call your references directly. Some of my references were a bit taken back by the questions they would ask about my performance. I was unemployed due to the market downfall and the Managing Directors asked my references if I was mentally stable because I was unemployed for a year. This was unprofessional and insulting especially after explaining the gap on my resume. My previous employers were surprised.

Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions as the interview questions were standard. The only odd questions were those directed towards my references.   View Answer
