    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Janney Montgomery Scott in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through my college recruiting site offered by my College. Granted, I go to a "target" university, I had two phone interviews - both 30 minutes back to back. I was honest with my knowledge (and lack thereof when it comes to finance as I go to a liberal arts institution). I was interviewed by the current analysts that I would be working under. They were friendly, personable and I felt it was necessary to make evident that I have a personality to go along with my brain and I would be a kind of person they want to work with for hours on end on any given day.

    Interview Questions

    • None. I discussed my knowledge of the relationship between the 3 financial statements, discussed the 3 ways to evaluate a firm, and the significance and future project of the current trend in oil.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Janney Montgomery Scott (San Francisco, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Had a brief phone interview with the Analyst, followed by an in person interview. It took a while to organize both steps, but that was due to the Analyst’s schedule. Next, they had me do an initiation report for a stock that they cover. I was given a month to complete the report. A day before it was due, I emailed the Analyst, only to find out that they had quit their job two weeks earlier. They told me to forward the project to their successor. I did this, and they said they would get back to me about it. They never bothered to get back to me about my project, which struck me as very unprofessional given the amount of time and work the firm had asked me to put into the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • There were a few questions and I don’t remember all of them, but they asked the normal ER interview questions (e.g. “walk me through your resume”, “What do you think of the economy”, etc.)   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Janney Montgomery Scott (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Was first contacted by HR who was nice enough. Came in for a face to face with hiring manager, advanced to next round. It's important to note that this was shifted about 2-3 times and then on the day of my first rounds one interviewer had to bow out. Fair enough, things happen. Come in for the next round of interviews and all seems to go well. Called later that week and told about how they now want to interview also some candidates internally and will get back to me. Why would you not interview internally first? I get it that companies feed job seekers a line or two but when they are adamant that "we don't operate like that, we will definitely tell you one way or the other" and then never call you again, it's not the best look. I think Janney is a great company but the group clearly had no idea where they wanted to go with the role so I'm glad I accepted a different offer.
