    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Lord Abbett & Co. in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for the legal EA position a few weeks ago. The receptionist was extremely nice but the HR person that interviewed me seemed like she had a chip on her shoulder. She had nothing great to say about the company. Seemed very miserable. The interview lasted about 15min. I felt very rushed. Total waste of time.

    Communications Services Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Lord Abbett & Co..

    Interview Details

    The interview was about 30min long. I met with an HR rep. Expect a round of spit-fire questions without any time to take a breath in-between! The questions were mostly from your resume asking about previous employment, school, activities, etc. Also be prepared to answer the questions of "what would so and so say is your best and worst quality" They basically want you to tell them what you think people think of you and they want to then know what you think of yourself. Then the interview concluded with a really quick overview of the company from the HR rep and then you ask any questions you have. A word of advice: sound very excited to work for this company specifically, do your homework and read up on the company, and make sure it's clear that you are interested in finance especially if your resume doesn't have a lot of experience in finance like mine didn't.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer did not seem enthused at all when she entered and had a ghost like face on her the entire time. She focused more on my coursework than actual experience. She was looking at her paper the entire time. Everyone else at the company was welcoming.

    Interview Details

    Interview process consisted of an initial phone interview with the Human Resources recruiter, followed by a "superday" comprised of a number of in-person interviews (I believe 9 total). Interviews were centered around fit and ability to think on one's feet.

    your first meeting will be with HR. It last 30 minutes and its really to see if you fit the organization and not about your skill set. They are very picky and want very conservative Republican types. Look at the profiles on linkedin. most of the people look alike.

    Interview Details

    I landed the initial interview through a NYC recruiter at the end of August. Everyone who interviews for any position at this organization always has to get through interviewing with the HR Manager first. If you are successful, the HR Manager will let your recruiter know and they will call you back to interview with the people you might work with/for. If you are not successful, the HR Manager will also provide that feedback to your recruiter, and your recruiter will let you know that the HR Manager passed.
