Reason for Declining – The job was not what I was looking for at the time. It was a hard decision because I was so impressed by the company itself, I almost took the job just based on the people I met.
Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Nuveen in March 2011.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a rep from their HR. That initial screen interview lasted for 20 minutes. A lot of the general questions you would expect in an interview were asked, why are you looking, what do you like/dislike about your job, what do you want to do 5 years from now.
Was invited for an onsite interview. I again interviewed with HR then the hiring manager. The hiring manager was pretty direct and exhaustive in his questions. The person wanted to know what I knew and how well I knew it.
All in all, it was a good experience, but don't expect a softball interview.
Interview Question – What was your college GPA? Answer Question
