Associate Fund Accountant Interview

Associate Fund Accountant
Chicago, IL

I applied online - interviewed at Northern Trust in November 2012.

Interview Details – (Wasn't the exact position, but was an accountant position) Got called a few weeks after I filled out the basic online application. Went in for an interview.. the interview consisted of about 4 or 5 members from a team interviewing me. After one was done they would send another member in.. during one transfer of interviewees I waited a good 35 min waiting...
Overall the questions were basic interview type questions- no major surprises.

Interview Question – None.. All basic Questions.. may ask experience with Microsoft office .   Answer Question
