    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Guggenheim Partners.

    Interview Details

    I prepped for a week. Knew their mission and values inside and out. Phone interview lasted 2 minutes. They asked me what it is about the position that I liked. I told them them opportunity to work with the partners and learning as much as I could about the different departments. They told me thank you and said that was all. Guess I didn't give them the answer they wanted. Received an email stating how happy they were to discuss the position with me and that they hoped that I learned something from the interview.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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 weeksinterviewed 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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Guggenheim Partners in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got an interview through an employee referral. There were two rounds of interviews. The first round I met with two people from two different departments who asked me why I wanted to work there, went over my resume, etc. Pretty typical. Then I was called back for a second interview where I met with three other members of the department. Pretty basic interview questions, everyone was fairly friendly. They told me they would be in contact with me, but I never heard from them again.

    Interview Questions
    • There were really no difficult questions, everything was fairly standard. They asked me a few theory questions about my field but were not really looking for a specific answer, just how I felt about it.   Answer Question
