    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Raymond James Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    The whole interview process is not quite smooth nor pleasant compared with those at tech company.
    1. The HR does not respond your email quickly, I need to initial the call to confirm the exact time for my phone interview.
    2. It take me two months from applying a job to getting on site opportunity.
    3. During the on site interview, they are not really organized. I am being told to go different offices to meet different person. Some of the interviewers are even talking on the phone with other department while you are sitting in front of him. Some of the interviews are randomly grabbed into interview. It does not sound a very professional organization in terms of interview process.
    4. HR does not respond email after on site when inquiring about the follow up process.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Raymond James Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL).

    Interview

    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

    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.
