    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at McLagan.

    Interview

    Applied through school service. At first, there was a phone interview with basic questions with HR person. I actually got into the second round, went up there for an on-site interview. Besides the regular questions with two managers and the HR person, I was also asked to show my ability using Excel and then submit a writing sample.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at McLagan (Stamford, CT) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview was with a young Associate that did not know how to conduct an invoking interview very well-- be it lack of experience, interest, or busy schedule. The interviewer did not ask any of the typical screening questions-- ergo strengths/weaknesses, technical/financial skills or knowledge, extesive background questions, etc. Interviewer asked 2 questions-- last job and why you want this job. Then asked if I had questions. Total interview time was less than 20mins and I left feeling like it was a timed exercise to see how fast he could hang up. Bad experience.

    Interview

    Normally consist of an interview with a senior member of staff - Associate or VP, and then the manager of the team your interviewing for. Over a period of 2 days and multiple interview each time - one on ones and panel. Mostly personality and background based initially to make sure that applicants are a good fit for the firm and the culture. It is no surprise that more than half of the office are born in May - seems we have similar dispositions!
