I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman (New York, NY) in July 2014.
I interviewed at BBH on two different occassions for two different positions. I wanted to work at BBH based on the fact that they are privately held and does not depend on the stock market when making executive decisions. I found that while interviewing for the first position the job may have been a bit junior for my background and experience. It took three weeks for me to find out that I was not chosen for the position. I then was asked if I was interested in another position in a different department. I interviewed with two Sr. Managers and aced the interview. Two weeks later I was turned down for the position. I was basically a shoe-in for the position and was shocked that I didn't get the offer. BBH claims to have dropped the "old boy" status, but it was clear to me that it still exists within this institution. Also, I noticed that BBH has very little diversity although they claim to have a diverse workforce. I'm absolutely done with this company.

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