    Interview

    Mostly a sizing up process, not too many real world analytical questions but more of a screening for what kind of person you are and what intentions you might have

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Delaware Investments (Philadelphia, PA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The company has a friendly culture and generally seem to favor people who fit the profile. They place emphasis on ethics and sound financial decision making, and appear to be risk averse. Once you apply, they will go through the resumes, contact the people who's resumes fit the description and have an interview or two if the decision is close. During the interview process, you will most likely not be going through any statistics, but rather an overview of your resume and basic financial knowledge about stocks/bonds. If you don't have much finance experience, there's still a chance for you to get the job because a lot of people in this firm have been given a chance for which they are grateful. Bottom line: would I work here again? Yes, if for no other reason than simply great work atmosphere (out of a 100 people maybe 1 seemed unfriendly)

    Interview Questions

    • General finance knowledge. No trick questions.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Delaware Investments.

    Interview

    The hiring process was more indepth than most places. All new hires must be interviewed by upper management before receiving a job offer, no matter what position you are applying for. Delaware also requires all new hires to complete a psychometric assessment.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult was the psychometric assessment as their were general practice questions made available but the overall test was timed. You had to complete a certain number of questions and obtain a score in an overall range, which was not shared with the individual. Once the test was completed, if you obtained a score in the targeted range you moved onto the next step in the interview process. If you didn't obtain the desired score you would potentially no longer be a candidate for the open position.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Minimal negotiation as I was pleased with the compensation package and start date that was originally offered.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Delaware Investments (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2008.

    Interview

    The interview was carried out by a senior executive of the operations department who was very nice to talk to. The interview was very informal and began with a simple review of my resume in which he went over each individual point and asked me to comment on it. Following that, he provided me with an overview of the job and the company and allowed me to ask any questions that I had. Overall, the interview lasted about 30 minutes.
