    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    They start off with a phone interview and then they bring you in for an interview. After that they will follow up with their offer or not. It was kind of frustrating that the recruiter over sold the position.

    Interview

    Asked many behavioral questions and really dug into my past. Great interview process overall, but environment was very stuffy / corporate. No appreciation for creativity or smaller company experience. Provided great feedback regarding my responses, and they were outstanding with answering any questions I had regarding the position, performance metrics, team size, etc.

    I applied online – interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    When I interviewed, I was working in a different city. I had 3 phone interviews, one with the recruiter, one with the team leader and hiring manager, and one with the hiring manager's manager. Basic questions regarding personality, knowledge of industry and computer skills. I didn't hear back for two weeks and was offered the position. No relocation assistance was given to move to a different city. Northern Trust is well known on The Street as being cheap in paying their employees.

    Very relaxed phone interview. Questions very basic. How did you help a past client. How long was the engagement. No technical questions. The interview was several weeks after submitting the application and so it took me a minute to remember the job description I was interviewing for.
