Client Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Man Investments in May 2011.

Interview Details – I was contacted by the supervisor for the position via email and a phone interview was scheduled for the following day. The role was to replace an outgoing employee and the supervisor was eager to find a replacement. The phone interview was fairly brief and primarily a screening to see if the candidate meets basic requirements.

The first in-person set of interviews was scheduled for the following day. It consisted of 4 interviews each with a person related to the role. Most questions were basic and related to relevant experience. Most employees conducting interviews were not management but peers to the position.

The second set of in-person interviews, the following week, again consisted of 4 rounds of in-person or teleconference interviews. Most interviewers were management level. The first round consisted of financial/technical financial terms, theories and definitions. It also involved puzzle type IQ questions. The second round consisted of questions related to product knowledge. The third was with a senior sales professional and the final with an HR representative.

A few days later references were requested and following that an offer letter was mailed (along with all other forms/documentation).

Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Z├╝rich (Switzerland)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Man Investments in July 2010.

Interview Details – Applied online. Got a call from HR soon thereafter scheduling a phone interview. This was followed by an HR interview a few days later and then a face to face. Rejected because of work permit issues. All interviews were mostly personality/fit assessment type questions. A bit of background and general ability questions but very little in the way of technical questions. Very professionally done and genuinely pleasant people.

Interview Question – What do you expect from your manager.   View Answer
