    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Schroders (Zürich (Switzerland)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview with a recruiter, who set up a 1:1 interview with my potential line manager. The interviews were both relatively informal, but touched on some heavier issues of my over qualification, strategy within the company and the line manager's personal career path. Overall, the interview with the line manager was very informative about the position and an enjoyable conversation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Schroders (London, England (UK)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Very long winded process...called in for multiple interviews with large non-communicative gaps in between meetings. Left uncertain as to whether they want you or not. Having joined the firm and discussed with colleagues, this process was apparently the norm. Fairly non technical,, more about personality fit
