Network Engineer Interview

Network Engineer
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at R.J. O'Brien in March 2009.

Interview Details – 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.

Commodities Broker Interview

Commodities Broker

The process took a day - interviewed at R.J. O'Brien in October 2009.

Interview Details – 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.
