Financial Analyst Interview

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

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Northern Trust in August 2011.

Interview Details

HR called me and set up an interview the next week. I was suppose to meet up with three managers but they had an emergency at the department and I ended up meeting the Head department. The manager explained the position and asked me the usual questions (situational Q), I wasn't asked any technical Finance/Accounting Q's. I finished the interview in 30 minutes which I thought was too short but to be honest there was nothing more to say. I wasn't asked a lot of the silly questions where they tell you "tell us about a situation where you disagreed with a boss or when you used your creativity and the like!!"

Interview Questions
  • We interviewed 2 very qualified candidates for this position, why should we hire you over them?   View Answers (2)
Negotiation Details
It is an entry level position and they offered me the max in the range so I didn't care to negotiate because I know it is fixed and I was satisfied.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Makati City (Philippines)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Makati City (Philippines)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Northern Trust in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    There would be 2 interviews, 2 exams, and a simple activity.
    1. Initial Interview - common interview questions are asked. Like stuffs about yourself, things you know about the company and the position you're applying for so you'd better be ready with your research here.
    2. Group Activity - I was asked to pic a topic and write an essay about it. Then we read it out loud one by one.
    3. Aptitude and Excel Exams - I accomplished this in a day. The aptitude test is easy but tricky and is time pressured, while the excel exam just comprises of some basic commands you can do on a spreadsheet.
    4. Final Interview - This one is a bit challenging because you'll be interviewed by managers or heads about the technical stuffs that you know. They asked me to define around 20 finance and accounting terms.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation at all. It's like take it or leave it. But for fresh grads, their offer is tempting since the salary is really high compared to other companies that hire fresh graduates.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Northern Trust in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    First round- write on given topic for about one page( eg- indian banking system) and then speak on it. (note- this is only to check your comuunication skills verbal and written so just write some common things about any topic given).

    Second round- aptitude, its easy LR, quant , english.

    third round- it will be HR( for me it was scheduled 3 times and was sort of technical itself).

    Final round - it was with some manager- brush up with bonds valuation, trading terms, spot price, strike price, deal price, open and close end mutual funds, NAV, diff market and their index, derivatives related terminology. and be confident.
