    Compliance Examiner II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The whole process was very smooth. The recruiter made the initial contact to screen the candidates. He thoroughly explained the position and upcoming process so I knew what to expect. Two weeks later I received a call to schedule a group interview over a video conference. All 3 interviewers were very professional and polite. Again, they explained what the next steps were and when they are hoping to make a decision. There was a personality test, as well as critical thinking and Wonderlic tests. A few days later they made an offer. I believe the offer was very fair.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you made a mistake and how you handled it.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was fair, however, I declined because of the travel schedule. The timing just wasn't right for me at this stage of my life. I would consider employment with Raymond James in the future based off of my experience.

    Options Rotational Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    1st stage is a 45 minute phone interview and 2nd stage is going to headquarters in St. Pete for a Super Day. Despite promises they are hiring top candidates in the country, they will fill spots with internal hires who already have connections to the company, even if they don't have the Finance background or Master's degrees that some other candidates have. If you don't have connections to the company for any entry level position, it's very difficult to break in. They also make it very unclear after the 1 year program where you will be placed within the company and what you'll be paid.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First HR will conduct a phone or Skype interview with you to determine your aptitude, personality, and areas you are interested within the firm. Be able to talk about yourself a lot and what you have planned out for your career. They like to see that you are actively thinking about the next 5 years. There is also a big emphasis on community service by HR. The second interview will be with the head of the department. They can invite you to HQ or just call you. Be familiar with the industry they are working in and be prepared with questions to ask them. Also be able to walk the interviewer over your resume in detail. Overall, if you got the interview it is because of your killer resume or employee referral. They really just want to see if you have an aptitude for the job you'll be working on and that they will enjoy working with you for the entire summer.
