    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Guggenheim Partners in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward financial interview although the people seemed very uninterested from the beginning despite strong credentials and a solid resume. They both had just got back from playing golf only 10 minutes before the interview, which made me question what I was looking into. Despite this, the interview went well and I answered basic financial questions you'd expect from an analyst position interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Guggenheim Partners.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and interviewed for this position within a week of initial contact. I met with 4 different people and the interview lasted about 2 hours. The interview wasn't very difficult and it was mostly conversational with a few easy behavioral questions thrown in the mix. I decided to drop out of the interview process because some employees were openly negative about their positions and made it seem like an undesirable work environment.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really difficult. Name three of your greatest weaknesses.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The recruiter/company continued to contact me after I dropped out and tried enticing me to take an offer, but the work environment was not appealing.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carmel, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Guggenheim Partners in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Brought in for initial interview. As soon as I walked past security I knew I didn't want a job there- it was a sea of tiny cubicles with no windows to the outside. Interviewer made faulty assumptions based off of every question I answered. Was told primary focus of job was to answer/direct phone calls. Interviewer had no personality and didn't seem like she wanted to be there. Kept asking me if I had questions when I'd already asked her several.

    Interview Questions
    • Very few questions asked about skill set- she mostly just wanted to know about my experiences at previous employers.   Answer Question
