I applied online – interviewed at Brown Investment Advisory & Trust (Baltimore, MD).
Applied and had an initial phone conversation. Everything went well, and then didn't hear back for 3 weeks. Then I was invited to fly out to meet for another round of interviews. Everything again went well, including start date times and salary discussions. It finished by them saying that I would work well with everyone and that I would hear a reponse by the week's end. Four weeks later, I have yet to hear a response despite multiple followups. Disappointing to say the least.
- It was all very standard. Frankly, there was no test of actual knowledge. No detailed question about how to resolve "x." It was all personality based. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Brown Investment Advisory & Trust (Baltimore, MD) in May 2009.
The initial interview process was straightforward. I found the job posting on the company website, and applied to the posting by sending an email with cover letter and resume. I also scanned the company website to see if I knew anyone who worked for the firm. I received a reply within 24 hours and was asked to come in for an interview. The in office interview was about 4-5 hours, and I met with about 8-10 people with several sessions of half hour interviews. After the in person interview, we scheduled a time for me to complete a sample "ad-hoc" project (they sent me a problem/business case that I had to create an answer for and respond within a time frame.)
- The questions varied from typical interview questions (what are your greatest strengths) to more in depth questions about how I solved a specific problem in my previous position. Most were standard. Answer Question
I was given the offer over the phone, and had limited ability to negotiate. I negotiated on the salary and benefits.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a day – interviewed at Brown Investment Advisory & Trust in October 2011.
The staffing agency sent my resume to the company, they liked what they saw and requested a phone interview. I first spoke with a human resource individual then the hiring manager.
