    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Opal Financial Group.

    Interview

    I'm not sure how they found my resume, got a call that they wanted to meet me in person. I came in and met with the HR representative. She was very nice and made me feel very comfortable. I then met with the sales manager.

    I came back for a final interview with the CEO who offered me the position on the spot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Opal Financial Group (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview then an in person interview. The phone interview was pretty easy and the in person interview was average. They didn't call back after the interview so I guess I didn't get the job. It would be professional if they replied back saying I didn't get the job instead of waiting for weeks for a decision.

    I applied online – interviewed at Opal Financial Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR director was pretty easy just a casual conversation about a few past work experiences and team situations. Second interview was with a manager which I guess didn't go so well because i never heard back from her even after sending a few follow up emails.

    Interview with the owner- all he did was look at his computer, barely looked up, said it as for his wanting to review my resume, he couldn't be bothered to spend 10 seconds on it before I got there

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Opal Financial Group (New York, NY) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process is pretty straight forward. They had me talk to a few of their employees, their HR head, the current person in the position, the person who would be the "boss" and the CEO. The questions were straightforward, largely based on your resume. Often asked about group dynamic questions, what type of manager would you be? What type of manager would you prefer to work under?

    Reasons for Declining

    Very unappealing. The position was alright, something I was looking into as a backup. Some of the people I met were nice and seemed pleasant to work with. However, the conversation with the CEO was extremely off putting. During the in person conversation, he was on his computer the majority of the time, excusing himself by saying that he was communicating with the other people who had interviewed me. That may have been true, however, he never really was able to pull away from it and focus on the conversation we were having. He often asked "Well, do you want to work here?" suggesting that many people probably do not follow through, even if given an offer. He then asked me to tell him less than 24 hours later of my decision. It seemed that he was trying to bully me because i was young. The following day I called him when I was supposed to and had an even more off putting conversation, where half way through the conversation, he suggested that he may have to reconsider as well if I needed to reconsider. I never suggested that I needed to reconsider, simply that I needed more details (the number of conferences, the salary, vacation days, etc). Overall, the office was terrible (dingy looking, no lighting, depressing), few of the people I met were socially awkward, and the CEO was very unpleasant. Luckily it was far from my top choice and so it wasn't really an issue for me. Even if it is your first choice, I would suggest you consider if you'd like to work at a place like this.
