Interviewed at Highland Capital
Interview Details – Applied through my university’s alumni job board as well as online through Highland’s systems. Was contacted by HR for a phone interview and then again for an in-person interview. In-person interview was consistent with what you see at most financial services firm - including multiple 2x1 interviews which lasted half the day.
Good exposure to senior management - I meet with the head of the business line I was interviewing for as well as several managing directors and directors. As is typical for most buyside firms, the in-person interview was followed by a case study. Case study was challenging but manageable. I received and accepted an offer shortly after submitting the case-study and was pleased with the way the recruiting process was handled.

Interview Details – I was approached through LinkedIn by the HR recruiter. After an initial phone call I was invited in for an interview. I thought it was handled quickly and efficiently overall. I was able to meet with the Director of my business unit as well as two partners and the CIO and co-founder, which I thought was great visibility and rare in companies today. The interview process was 4 in-person interviews, which may seem like a lot, but is to be expected with a company of this stature and talent level. Upon my offer and acceptance letter I was greeted with an amazing gift basket and was made to feel right at home from the very beginning. Great company, couldn't be happier.

Interview Details – Highland Capital Management is a top notch investment firm that I became aware of through a third party recruiting firm who thought I would be a great fit for based of my work experience.
The recruiter and I submitted my formal resume to HCM's recruiting manager and I was given a call shortly after to discuss a job opportunity and set up an in-person interview.
As expected, the interview process was very thorough and professional. I first spoke with the recruiting manager via telephone and was then asked to meet for a formal, in-person interview. I was given an itinerary via email by the recruiting manager to help prepare in advance for the interview which was a great help.
I didn't get the job that I initially interviewed for, however I was given a call a few weeks later to interview for a new position that I ended up being a great fit for. After that second in-person interview, passing a skill/scenario test, and reference check I was given an offer.
Overall, the interview process was a positive experience. All of my questions were properly addressed and they were very accommodating in arranging times to interview. I was impressed with the organization by the recruiting manager and the warm welcome I received from those that I interviewed with and the rest of the staff. I was also impressed with the thoroughness because I helped me prepare and get to know the company and staff before I met them.

Interview Details – "Very Unprofessional Recruiter ever"
I got a call from the recruiter and scheduled a phone interview. But before the interview she canceled and said that she would contact me again. I never get a call so that I contacted her three times and left three voice emails. She ignored everything. Then, 3 weeks later, I saw the same job positing from the online job board and applied for the same position again. She emailed me and scheduled an interview again.
I took a day off for the interview. I was suppposed to receive a call at 3 PM. She didn't call me so that I called her after 15 minutes later. She didn't receive a all and the gave me a call after 2 minutes.
I got rejected because they don't sponsor Visa for foreigners. However, she took my all day and didn't even say "Sorry".
