    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at R.J. O'Brien (Chicago, IL) in March 2009.

    Interview

    HR Department was reasonably responsive when queried. Long period between interview and notification that an offer would not be extended. Phone interview was with actual hiring manager, not with HR, so it was easier to get immediate feedback about expected knowledge, etc. In-person interview was long, with 3 separate 1:1 interviews from hiring manager up to C-level. Refreshments were offered.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at R.J. O'Brien in October 2009.

    Interview

    They asked why do you think you would be successful as a broker. They also mention that there is a high turnover and most people quit the industry after 6 months because of the stress. I was asked how I am planning on avoiding burnout and why I think I would be a convincing voice on the phone.
