    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Chatham Financial.

    Interview

    My interview was at my college's career development office, and the conversation was really nice and smooth. My interviewer was very friendly, and the whole experience was enjoyable. We were also able to connect on a few subjects and areas in our lives, so that was pleasant. The interviewer ended with a logic question, which is what they normally do at the end of every first-round interview. I was able to past this round and go on to super day.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Chatham Financial (Denver, CO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a director, then went through an accuracy test (comparing strings of numbers/text on a piece of paper to decide if they were the same or not) and a math test they said was based on the GMAT. The test wasn't too bad, but time goes really quickly. I didn't finish, but I'm sure hardly anyone does. After that (no results on the tests provided) I had 2 video conference interviews with people in the home office (I was interviewing in Denver) and two more in-person interviews that were 3:1 and 2:1. There were at least 2 interviewers in each interview. The interviews were all fairly conversational with no questions that were very hard to answer. No brain teasers, logic questions or anything like that. All questions were about past experience, resume, thoughts about the role, future career plans, etc. If your resume is good enough to get the interview, and you do well on the tests, I don't think the interviews are meant to screen anything but personality/fit.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Chatham Financial.

    Interview

    I applied through my online campus job board and was selected for an on-campus interview. Had my interview with a recent graduate and a managing director. They offered me an opportunity to attend their super day at the company headquarters. The super day consisted of two short tests for accuracy and a longer one on math. The math was GMAT style. I then had 4 separate interviews each with two people from different parts of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a lot of questions about my resume and some questions about what the company does. The hardest part was the brain teasers. During both the first interview and the second interview I was asked to solve very challenging problems. This is a big portion of the interview and you really need to nail the brain teasers to get an offer. I impressed them on the first set of brain teasers and I think this is why I got a second round. I didn't do as well the second round on brain teasers.   Answer Question

    Interview

    In-Person interview on campus followed by interview at the Chatham HQ in Pennsylvania. Once there, I met with 4 sets of interviewers who asked questions or tested different skill sets. All in all, the process took a couple of months and the final interview was about four hours. Everyone I met was very nice. Not too intimidating for such a high level interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Chatham Financial in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through a University career portal, and I was contacted about a week after the application deadline to schedule an interview with a date about 10 days later. The interview was a 2 on 1 and the interviewers asked questions off my resume as well as some personality questions. The interview was not overly taxing and seemed more like a conversation rather than an interrogation.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was primarily experience-based; however, there were some basic return on investment questions that included loan interest rates.   Answer Question
