    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Northern Trust in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Multiple phone interviews with various people with a lot of duplication of questions. Face to face interview was supposed to be panel interview and ended up being an interview with the department manager, and then he went out and a senior analyst came in and asked the same questions he asked on the phone. Never met the team supervisor or any other team members before hire.

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Northern Trust in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Northern Trust in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through on-campus recruiting. The first interview was straightforward and behavioral. The second, on-site interview was about a month later. They asked more behavioral questions, as well as talk about the various teams. There was a case study, but it as rather basic and more to gauge your thought processes than any particular content knowledge.

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Northern Trust in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview process took very long... About one month without any communication, whereas a colleague who applied for the same post during the same period was offered a job immediately.... This was very disappointing due to the lack of communication.
