Acquisitions Analyst Interview

Saint Petersburg, FL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Raymond James & Associates in February 2014.

Interview Details – Was contacted by a recruiter informing me of the available position. Upon submitting a resume, cover letter, and online application, I was contacted again by a different HR employee which helped me schedule a time to come to the headquarters for on-site interviews and testing. The testing consisted of personality, logic, reasoning, and intelligence based questions. I then had two separate 30 minute interviews with a Hiring Manager and Senior Vice President.

Interview Question – All generally normal questions, behavioral and experience based.   Answer Question

Senior Analyst Interview

Senior Analyst
Saint Petersburg, FL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Raymond James & Associates in January 2010.

Interview Details – Fairly straightforward process, I had a phone screen with HR, then a phone interview with the hiring manager, then flew out to interview and take some tests (wonderlic, personality, etc.). I interviewed with my manager and 3 other senior members of the organization, had lunch with my manager, and that was it. Mostly fit type questions, with a few technical ones thrown in.

Interview Question – None really, although I did have to interview with a C-level executive, and wasn't expecting that.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Minimal negotiations, they offered the number I was looking for, and a small sign on bonus to cover relocation. Vacation starts at 10 days for all new employees, so you may want to negotiate more.
