    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Columbia Management Group.

    Interview Details

    They called me for a initial phone screening that went over the basics of the position and then I was invited into the office for in person interviews. I had individual interviews with the team and all their questions were primarily behavioral and they asked a lot about my experiences and my goals and what I hope to get out of the internship. They were all very friendly and easy to talk to and welcomed any questions that I might have about the company or the position.

    Negotiation Details
    This was an internship during the school year so they wanted a minimum of 20 hours a week from me. I am not sure if the hours are negotiable (as the contract called for 20hr/week) but either way sometimes I work a little under 20 hours a week and they are still fine with and they're also very lenient and flexible with your hours, not the mention the pay was good.

    Operations Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Columbia Management Group in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my resume to my brother I recieved a call from the recruiter at Bank of America (Owned Columbia Management at the time)

    Had an initial phone interview. I believe it went over my previous experience and it wasn't anything particularly too complex.

    I went in for a second interview in person and that went exceptionally well considering the interviewer had worked at my previous company (State Street) so he could related with my day to day activities.

    Since it was an operation position, I was not asked any complex financial questions.

    The background check was extensive and it took quite some time for them to reach my first employer (no longer existed) and that held up the process substantially. Took them over 1 month to get that squared away.

    Interview Questions
    • What were your day to day activities at your previous job?   Answer Question
    • What were some of your major accomplishments at your previous job?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Wasn't able to negotiate but that may have been a product of my inexperience.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Columbia Management Group in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    You meet with 6 different managers and get passed around. After the 3rd, there isn't much else to learn about a sales role and the career path. Redundant and time consuming. Nice people.
