Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at J H Darbie &Co in July 2014.

Interview Details

I was first contacted regarding my internship application by phone. The recruiter asked me questions about my interest in the internship, what I saw myself doing, etc... I was invited to come in for an interview. The day of the interview, I was given an exam with an assortment of questions; the first part covered the basics of finance and the second part was more of a brain teaser. The interview was a group interview, and we were told what the internship would consist of and what to expect.

    Interview Details

    Very unethical and unprofessional interview process. Workers there posses a low level of intellect. Walked in, and they gave me a written exam for 30 minutes then interviewed me after that. Arthur is a guy who thinks he knows how to run a show. I was laughing inside myself during the entire interview process.

    This job is for people who have high work ethic, low level intellect and can be easily manipulated by higher management. They look for just that.

    Interview Details

    They ask questions to see if you know anything about the financial world. They try and figure out if you are a hard worker because the last thing they want to do is waste their time on someone who isn't willing to give it everything they have.
