    Proxy Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Glass Lewis & Co in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was interesting. It was administered by two young-ish men, and was very straight-forward-- no real curve balls or questions that had me scrambling. Many of the questions were specific to my previous experience as a researcher. They also asked if I knew anything about proxy research. This should go without saying, but poke around on their website and ready some of the sample research reports if you're serious about the position.

    Interview Questions
    • There was a "written" (on the computer) test, but it was based mostly on reading comprehension and was fair.   Answer Question

    Proxy Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Glass Lewis & Co.

    Interview Details

    They're desperate for bodies, and they'll hire just about anyone who can breathe. If you speak another language, they'll hire you for that team, too (2 for 1 mentality). Just make sure you can read some of the key terms in the language you interview for (check out a publicly available proxy statement for an example of what you'll need to understand). Girls who walk in, expect to be ogled. There's a very college vibe when 'the new batch' arrives each year.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Glass Lewis & Co in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by two leads in Asia team. They would first ask you about what is "proxy research", then typical questions about your strength and weakness, and why you choose Glass Lewis or why you apply for this position. My interview process lasts about one hour, mainly because we had casual chat after about our majors, living situation in San Francisco, previous Chinese tests, and what kind of materials I will read and analyze in order to write a report.

    Interviewed with two full-time Research Analysts who asked most behavioral questions. Afterwards there was a reading comprehension and math-based test to gauge your understanding of basic financial terms and legal jargon. Anyone who has taken a standardized test shouldn't be concerned.

    Interview Details

    very positive experience. mixed english and target language interview with direct supervisors and middle management. three people and one room. pretty typical questions and very interested in listening to your responses. including test lasted about 40 minutes or so. in general, not high stress unless you make it so. mainly they are looking to see if you are going to be someone easy to work with and get along with your coworkers and can you pass the test

    Interview Questions
    • two translation exercises, which looking back do a pretty good job of indicating whether you have the reading ability and understanding necessary for the job. perfect response is not expected, just to see that you have a general ability in line with their needs.   Answer Question
