    Trust Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Raymond James & Associates in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process extremely informal. Met with each individual department member, except the Sr. Trust Officer. The interview process was very disappointing. It appeared as if the Company (or at least the group I met with) were not really interested in filling the position. I was told that the Company is going through changes and the individuals did not really know if they would have a position after all was said and done. Very disappointing, particularly after I drove about 4 hrs for the interview. Long day for nothing !

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Raymond James & Associates in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    the process was too long and complicated. I started interviewing in June with multiple interviews through December and finally an offer in January. The salary intitially was significantly less so I had many discussions with HR on increasing the base or I was not interested. This took months. Relocation was a disaster, they basically gave you money and you had to figure it out. I met with 5 people and was tested all in the same day.
