Senior Specialist Interview

Senior Specialist
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Merrill Lynch in May 2008.

Interview Details – The interview process was quick and efficient. I was referred by an employee at the firm who forwarded it to her HR contact who then forwarded my resume to the recruiter assigned to the position. The recruiter sent it to the hiring manager who wanted to meet with me. I had one roughly hour-long interview that was very enjoyable.

Interview Question – Tell us about a time when you dealt with a difficult situation concerning clients or management.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, when I received the offer, I had already received another offer at a different firm. I definitely wanted to accept the Merrill position however, but wanted to leverage my other offer so that I could receive a higher offer. It did work, and the recruiter and hiring manager were very receptive. I did not push it, I simply put it out on the table and did not ask for too much more.
