    Client Relations Coordinator Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at North Star Resource Group in March 2015.

    Interview

    Overall it was a very long interview process. Before the steps began I was told to get interviews with other firms, this alone added 3 weeks to the interview process. Then once the actual interviewing began, I talked with about 6 current advisors so that was pretty close to another 6 weeks of interviewing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at North Star Resource Group (Baltimore, MD) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Called by HR, personality test. Skype interview with VP. I think that it was pretty easy, just be cool and laid back. The managers seemed okay to talk too, but the interns looked pretty depressed. It looks like things could turn out bad for me as an intern, so I declined.
