    Interview Details

    Had three interviews. First was to meet the hiring manager. The second was to meet some of the team members. And the third was to meet the head of the department. Each phase took a few weeks in between to coordinate dates and times. But overall, it was a very smooth process. I was quizzed on my knowledge of the company. Fortunately I had taken the time to read up via the firm's web site. This seemed to be a key component during my interview as it showed my interest in more than just attaining a higher salary.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at New York Life Investments in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started with a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then, the hiring manager wanted to meet me in person in his office. During the meeting he asked questions about my background and the tools they use in their environment. A week later, they called me for another round with two business users, they asked questions about my prior experience. After spending about 1 hour with them, I met with two engineers, discussed technology. overall the interview went well.

    About 2-3 weeks later they called me in their New York office for another round of interview with the department head and a senior manager. At that point recruiter told me that they are interviewing another candidate and after meeting the other candidate they will make their hiring decision. I waited for another couple of weeks and after few follow ups the recruiter replied Nooooo, as the department head preferred the other candidate.

    What a waste of time!!!!! They could have been more transparent to me,,,,, probably taking advantage of the bad job market.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at New York Life Investments in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in for an initial interview where I spoke with 3 people and then there was a follow up interview on a different day with 3 more people. On the offer the basically they gave me a higher base pay, but when I looked at the total benefits it was not actually an improvement from my other employer. Everyone seemed really happy to be working there.

    Reasons for Declining

    Commute was not an improvement and they were offering basically what I was already making so it wasn't a promotion. It would have probably been a good company to work at, but the commute would be hard.
