Fixed Income Associate Interview

Fixed Income Associate
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AllianceBernstein.

Interview Details – I interviewed with someone from a recruiting firm on behalf of the company, they didn't call me back for a second interview and although I was promised an answer within one week it took them 2 months to send me an email telling me that I won't get a second interview. Also the interviewer had no idea about the company, she told me to ask any questions that I have then repeatedly said she doesn't know much.
