    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Coleman Research.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back around a week later that they wanted me to submit a video response to questions. It was pretty simple with mostly easy personality questions and you could rerecord your responses. Around 3 days later I received an email saying I was no longer being considered.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Coleman Research.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email the next week asking me to complete an online interview. It wasn't a Skype interview; instead I had to record a 60 second video answer to a few questions online. They were pretty standard questions about non-technical stuff and I was allowed to re-record as many times as I wanted. The next day I got another email to set up a phone interview. The phone interview lasted for an hour and was a pretty good dialogue. I learned a lot about Coleman and the nature of the job. I did a resume walk through and said how I would work through an example work situation. I think they were most interested in my foreign language skills and were hoping I would be able to make calls in German, which I can't yet. Sounds like they're expanding in Raleigh and have some good opportunities. I received an email the next week telling me that I was not going to be asked in for an in person interview.

    Two in person interviews, one on campus, other on-site. The first interview was mostly behavioral with a brief, easy case, which I walked through with the interviewer.

The interview process took about three hours total on-site, back-to-back-to-back interviews.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Coleman Research (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Within an hour, was contacted for a phone interview. The phone interview was normal resume walk through and sometime spent with HR going over position. HR seemed very interested in getting "loyal" people - or people that wouldn't quit/look for better work. After the phone interview, I was brought into the office to meet with the team head. Wasn't as much an interview as the team head telling me about the job and its pros (easy hours, good clients) and cons (poor pay, repetitive work). 2 weeks after this interview, I was asked to put together a report/writeup of recent industry events and what industry experts I would use to help generate calls. Came into the office to present my findings to team head and 1 partner. Not many questions - more of a discussion. Was told I would be contacted in a week with good/bad news...never heard back. Didn't bother following up.

    People were friendly and nice. Business appears to be doing well and growing. Finding "loyal" people seems to be important there as it was brought up in all of the interviews. They seem to have problems with people doing the job for a few months than moving to different company. The London partner stated "i know you could do the job...but would you want to do the job?" He made it seem like the works sucks...but who knows?

    The company isn't traditional equity/securities research, nor does it pretend to be. It has 3 major teams: Research (source experts), Events (generate topics/phone calls for buy-side clients to call into) and Account Management (attract and keep current buy-side clients). The main product is primary research which is done by setting up calls between investors/customers and experts (consultants, former executives, etc).
