Junior Fund Manager Interview

Junior Fund Manager

I applied online and interviewed at Direct Capital.

Interview Details – Applied for an entry level position with this company and was contacted by a recruiter to set up a time for a phone interview. After confirming a time and clearing a busy schedule of mine to chat with this recruiter I was sent an email 30 MINUTES prior to our interviewing informing me the position had been filled. Only after emailing the recruiter multiple times was I sent an email back noting again that he was sorry, the position had been filled and there were no other positions that matched my particular background.

Senior Recruiter Interview

Senior Recruiter
Portsmouth, NH

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Direct Capital in August 2011.

Interview Details – Everyone was very nice and very professional, from the first phone call to the final interview. I started with the HR admin for a phone screen. I then came in and met with the COO, the HR manager, and the IT Manager.
I then had phone interviews with the CEO and the VP of Marketing. The office is clean, and bright with 2 cafeterias and a gym. I could hear people laughing as I walked through the facility. The environment was very relaxed. All the technology was up to date and state of the art.

Reason for Declining – After researching the company I found they are quite aggressive in their solicitations
