    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at ConvergEx in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The HR contact was very friendly, albeit a bit unprofessional. I had a series of phone screens and then they asked me to come in for an in-person interview. I had to fly in from out of state and asked if they would reimburse my travel expenses and they agreed to reimburse 'reasonable' expenses. I met with the two HR folks who were very nice. I enjoyed my conversations with both of them and they spent most of the time asking me questions about my resume and background...pretty standard stuff. At the end of the interview, they were both very encouraging and told me that I would hear from them soon. I sent a thank you email the next day and also inquired about the reimbursement process. They informed me that they would be in touch with me in a few weeks and, if I didn't hear from them, to make sure to follow-up. They didn't answer my question regarding reimbursement so I figured I'd broach the subject again in the next email. I waited three weeks and then followed-up, per my instructions. I was told to follow-up in 3 days. I sent my follow-up email, didn't hear anything, and then sent one more regarding my reimbursement and still to this day have not heard anything. They still owe me my reimbursement expenses and I have a feeling I will not be receiving any money from them. Beyond my frustration with their lack of follow-through, they were also extremely unprofessional by not communicating with me. It takes 2 minutes to write a TBNT email but it is totally unacceptable to provide no notification to a candidate that spent $400 to come in for an in-person interview. Based on my experience with the company throughout the entire process, they seem extremely unorganized and I would be wary of any promises that they make you. I wouldn't work there unless it was a last resort.

    *Update 10/9: Received an email with reimbursement instructions. Better 2 and a half months late than never, I suppose!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ConvergEx.

    Interview Details

    First step is a phone screen by an HR rep. Next I had an on-site interview with that same HR rep. After about a half hour, I met with the Managing Director one-on-one. Then I met with another employee that worked on the Trade Desk. Then I met with another Managing Director one-on-one. Lastly, I went out to lunch with the two Managing Directors. The whole process lasted about 4 hours. The questions were mostly behavioral, though there were some basic technical questions that had to do with statistics and economics.

    Connectivity Consultant Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at ConvergEx in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview wasn't bad. The were several 1-1 interviews and it seemed very disorganized. The people interviewing were completely random and all the questions were very repetitive. They asked a few logic questions but were pretty simple and you could probably find them all online beforehand. My best advice is to be confident and don't get stumped by any of their questions. The culture of the company is very young so it's pretty relaxed.

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ConvergEx in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I met with several people at the company, starting with a 1:1 interview with HR, and then 1:1 interviews with the members of the group. Finally, I was asked back for a writing sample test and given 6-7 questions about relevant topics in the market. I was given 90 minutes to answer as many as I wanted, in as little or as much detail as I preferred. I was told that I would hear back in several days, as I had another offer on the table, but I was never contacted again, even though I reached out to HR via phone and email. The interview process was quite positive until this point.
