- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA) in January 2015.
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.
- Are you prepared to work as a Financial Advisor. Answer Question
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA).
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).

The process took 1 day – interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA) in December 2010.
Met with three people, one person from the advisor team where I would be interning, a current intern, and a VP. Very nice and casual, laughed some, they told me a lot about the position and just asked me about previous and current positions/clubs on my resume. "Name a time where you handled a difficult client".
- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA) in January 2009.
The interview was pretty easy. Starting by asking me about myself, and after warming up a couple of minutes, the interviewer went to the details about the skills related to the job function such as research and other experience I have had in the field.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA) in August 2008.
initial contact with the company was through an old college friend working at the company who put my resume on the hiring director's desk. quick phone interview led to a one on one interview with the managing director, basic math skills test (no calculator), interview with a senior financial adivsor from the office.
