    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Northern Trust.

    Interview

    On Campus interview which they read off a sheet of paper asking straight up behavioral questions. Nothing difficult. They would ask "tell me a time you have been challanged", "tell me a time you have ran into a problem with a group member and how did you solve it". Wasn't a very interesting interview because they just asked question after question.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    There were 4 rounds of interviews. First was over the phone with HR, then in person with the hiring manager and another person in that group, then another round with several folks in other departments who use the group's services, then a final one-on-one with the hiring manager. Took over 3 months. Seemed like they wanted consensus from a lot of people.

    Interview Questions

    • Very heavy on behavioral questions. More than any other job I've interviewed for. Expect at least a dozen. It got kind of tedious.   Answer Question
