    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Typical Interview. Phone interview first, then was sent two internet based financial tests. The tests contained typical financial based questions with simple math. After passing the exam I was contacted by a Merrill Lynch Rep. to schedule an in person interview. I then met with the vice president who explained the job and asked typical interview questions. I was not impressed with the interview experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I used an online application process after my uni made me aware of the opportunity. Submitted my cover letter, resume, and transcript and I got a call within a couple of weeks. Three more phone interviews and countless emails later, they extended an offer, non-negotiable. I happily accepted. Process was quick, easy, and pleasant (for an internship in the financial services industry, that is).
