Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Piper Jaffray (New York, NY) in October 2014.

Interview

First round fit interview followed by superday. I was selected through on campus recruiting and contacted for a first round interview shortly after. HR department is good - they were swift in returning my emails and phone calls. Piper is a good hiring process. Just be prepared to the letter for the expected questions and you should be just fine.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Piper Jaffray (Minneapolis, MN) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I saw the job on my collegeg website and applied. I had a phone interview and was then invited to interview in Minneapolis. I saw 5 people that day and was told I would hear back from them next week. Inever heard back from PJ again. I tried to call HR contact 3 times and no one would return my call. If they went to all of the trouble to set up 5 high level interviews for me, why could they not even let me know I did not get the job? Worst HR experience I have ever had.
