Operations Specialist II Interview

Operations Specialist II
Boston, MA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman in October 2010.

Interview Details – I was a referral from a senior employee. I had two interviews in one sitting, each with two manager level people. One was fairly intense and that focused on prior experience, school, etc. The other interview was very laid back and casual. The focus of the second interview seemed to be to get a read on my personality.

Interview Question – I had only been at my previous job for 3 months. I saw that as a temporary opportunity and this position as a career start, but I was grilled on why I would expect BBH to hire me given I was jumping ship so soon into my other job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no opportunity to negotiate. It was a take it or leave it offer.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman in February 2011.

Interview Details – Very effiecent young interviewers. Great attitudes, although I believe that they should have other, more senior employees do the interviewing as they seemed to be too young to be judges of personal and professional character.

Interview Question – Tell us one thing about yourself that we wouldn't know now but would know in 6 months from now.   View Answers (2)
