    Human Resources Employee Relations Generalist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at LPL Financial.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for the San Diego office location. The initial interview process was very positive with great interaction between myself, the recruiter and the hiring manager. I had two phone interviews that seemed to go very well. I then had an in person interview which I thought had gone well also. I was then told it would be 3-4 weeks before a decision was made. I followed up at the 5 week mark with the recruiter and got a upbeat email in response stating no decision had been made and I was still being considered. I then sent another follow up email at 7 weeks to the hiring manager and the recruiter and had no response. At 9 weeks I got a very canned email stating that while I was very qualified they had selected someone else for the role. I would have preferred better follow up and contact from LPL sooner than 9 weeks especially considering I was very excited and interested in the job. I would have also preferred to get a more personal email that would have provided some feedback for why I wasn't selected so I could do training or learn more in a particular area to assist me in my continued job search. Felt like I had fallen into a black hole.....

    Interview Details

    Interviewed but got an offer 1 month later for a different position. Accepted and proceeded with background. Then they asked if I can start the same day, I declined since I need more notice. Then they called me and decided not to proceed with the position. Waste of time!

    Senior Level IT Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at LPL Financial.

    Interview Details

    Interview with SVP regarding a high level executive IT role. No follow up on interview at all. Extremely unprofessional behavior for an executive level position. Even a thanks or no thanks would be expected for a role at this level. I would not recommend this company. Lack of courtesy and etiquette is extremely disappointing.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at LPL Financial in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Took almost a month to hear back. Rcvd email requesting phone interview (from Charlotte, NC office). Participated in phone interview a week later. No feedback for another 3 - 4 weeks. Then received email requesting in person interview (another week out). There were 5 finalists. Had 3 separate meetings with 3 different people (not including the executive for which I would be working). After 3 weeks and word, I sent an email to HR requesting status. Another week later, received a "form" letter email with the usual "we filled the role with an applicant whose qualifications better fit the position..."

    An unprofessional end to a long, dragged out process.
