Registered Client Associate Interview

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Merrill Lynch.

Interview Details

I was referred by an employee and was scheduled for an interview before I had even put in an application online. I had three interviews in quick succession (branch manager, the department supervisor, and then the team you will be joining). After that you go through the background check, finger printing, etc. From start to offer letter the whole process took about a week.

The first interview is just a "get to know each other" thing. No tough questions, just a test of chemistry and a conversation to make sure you speak intelligently and will fit in with the work atmosphere. Second interview was a little more traditional, but still conversational. Third interview was very typical traditional "where do you want to be in 5 years" type of stuff.

BTW, I noticed on this site that when it comes to ML you are either hired immediately or you're SOL. If you're waiting more than two weeks to hear anything I'd move on.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Merrill Lynch in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed at the Merrill Lynch in Alexandria. They made me feel like I was such a great fit for the position. I had to wait around to be interviewed, because someone had a kid that was sick the night before. The first person that interviewed me also answered their cell phone during the interview. Very unprofessional. I met the advisor that I would be working with too. No personality.
