    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sterne Agee and Leach in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    One initial phone screen, then one longer phone interview, then a final round in-person consisting of three 1:1 interviews. The questions for the most part were about my experiences in college, interest in economics, and my skills. I left the office feeling very positive, and quite frankly I am not sure why I relatively quickly was informed that I will not be receiving an offer.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sterne Agee and Leach in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    First round was on a phone interview. Then after a few weeks, got called back for a second round. The interviewer wanted me to meet the whole team, but the others were not available. The interview itself was pretty relaxing. You definitely have to take initiative and explain about your resume and present it in confidence. They want to know how you can be an asset to their company, what relative work(s) have you done in the past relative to the position. You could also talk about projects, assignments, what you've done at school to point out that you're a perfect fit for the position. Talk outside of what's on the resume.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sterne Agee and Leach in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was informal. To be frank, it was more of a conservation than anything. The employer was simply trying to ascertain what I knew about the industry and also what it was that I looked to gain out of the experience. This made me very comfortable, allowing me to be myself and answer his questions with confidence.
