    Accounting Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Newedge in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone interview with HR was quick and to the point, and consisted of some typical phone screen questions. Following the initial phone screen, an onsite 1:1 interview was scheduled which I felt went well and lasted a little more than an hour. The final interview happened a few weeks after that and was scheduled to be with several other members of the team. The interview itself wasn’t very difficult and it also seemed to go pretty well. After several weeks went by with no feedback, it was finally communicated that the position was filled with an internal candidate.

    Director Compensation & Benefits Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Newedge in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    A series of panel interviews with HR and Finance people. The finance folks were sharp...the HR folks not too.
    The org is really screwed up and after many interviews they decided to promote from within. It was obvious that the staff was overworked but also under-qualified for their positions. They were looking to bring in expertise to do the dirty work but not make the necessary changes. They made it clear that they wanted the payroll supervisor fired.

    Client Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Newedge in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application online via a job board (monster, career builder, yahoo, etc.). Then I received a call back from their HR and had a brief screening interview that was a basic overview of my resume and background. What I had done in my past and what I was doing now and why I was looking to change. Then they told me a little about the role and advised that they were looking to get someone in right away and that the hours were a little bit odd (10am-7pm) and that I would also have to be available to work on Holidays. After still being ok with that I was then asked to come in for a face to face with the Supervisor of the department and with her Boss.

    The face to face interview turned into a group interview due to time constraints on Newedge's part. Both the supervisor and the Director were both present. They again outlined the role and that they were looking for someone who could hit the ground running. Someone who was proactive and could manage things independantly, as they would be working with one of their top tier clients as the main point of contact during the late hours.

    I provided examples of how I had handled clients in the past, how I had utilized multi-tasking in my job and worked independantly. As well, as how I had worked with a team and how I had prioritized tasks on the fly, in a fast paced environment.

    The only "negative" feedback that I received in the interview - when I asked for feedback from the director as to what he saw as any skillsets of mine that I might need for the role - he said - none - his only concern was that I might be too "over qualified" and he was concerned that I might not be challenged enough in the position. So this role may be best for someone with minimum 3 years client service, but no more than 7 years, and definitely no management experience or front office/sales experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were basic - the most challenging thing of the role was working or being "available" to work ALL holidays.   View Answer

    Client Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Newedge in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with head of CS in London and one of the team managers. The interview was conducted late, with no acknowledgement or apology for the 30 minute delay. The structure of the interview process was very much to test knowledge on the business, with such questions as 'tell me how a trade clears' and 'explain what the Client Service team does' rather than competency or skills based questions. The interviewers didn't seem to have much interest in my CV or my previous experience and I wondered why I was there, It was difficult to build a rapport with the interviewers and I got the impression I was wasting their time as well as my own. All in all, it was quite a bizarre experience.

    A point to note if applying via an agency, Newedge apply an agency retention programme, where if an agency represents you at the firm, even if they can't secure an interview, they own you as a candidate for up to 6 months. If a second agency inadvertently forwards your CV and secures an interview and a job, the original agency will be paid out.

    Interview Questions
    • What are your skills and what are your weaknesses
      What did you like about your employer and what did you not like about your employer
      What motivates you and what demotivates you
