    Compliance Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Raymond James Financial.

    Interview Details

    Taleo based system for entering employment history, skills, etc and uploading resume. Human Resources is not proactive in reaching out to experienced candidates and often does not pass resumes to hiring manager that would qualify. Testing is required in order to proceed to next phase of interview process, but not a guarantee that you will interview again. The process is relatively objective; however, if you are interested in a job, it may take months to get an answer. Stay ontop of HR recruiter and try to find a connection to the hiring manager. Interviews are often done with a manager and 1-3 team members depending on the job level. Be prepared to answer scenario -type questions: situation or task, action, and result.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of the questions relate to how you will fit within a team setting-- not difficult unless you are unaware of corporate culture (research).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation for salary and benefits takes place through the recruiter. Their objective is to hire for the least amount possible in the salary range, always counter because they will counter back 3-5% up from their original unless it is entry level. If you have 3+ years of experience, be sure to ask for 15 days vacation a year instead of 10 since you are coming with experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Raymond James Financial in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with HR which included many behavioral questions. I also received an email to complete a personality test at this time.
    Nearly a week later I received a call to schedule on site interview.
    The second interview with the hiring manager went well and included both behavioral questions and explanations of my experience.
    Immediately after the onsite interview I received another call from HR to come back in for an accounting battery and another round of interviews. The third round of interviews was much more technical. I was told multiple times they planned to make their decision within a few days but I never heard back from anyone at the company.
