I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at T. Rowe Price.

The interviews were relatively laid back and consisted of mostly the basic behavioral interview questions.

New Media Specialist Interview

New Media Specialist
Owings, MD

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at T. Rowe Price.

Interview Details – Contact with placement agency which lead to a first interview. The interviewer was prompt and formal, meeting me at the door and walking me in personally. He was very professional and welcoming that the interview felt more like a greet to a new contact and not an interrogation. Very detailed in which the position was for and very informative as expectations was instead of being a representative that was from HR and not familiar with the position itself. Interviewer was impressed and will be contacting with details for a second interview and requirements for further consideration.

Interview Question – Starting position is very mundane and doesn't have openings to expand for more then a few months, is this a problem with expectations for this position?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – accepting for a second interview which will be the final step in the hiring process.

Investment Operations Intern Interview

Investment Operations Intern
Owings Mills, MD

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in February 2014.

Interview Details – I first came in contact at a career fair at the university in currently attending. I applied through my university's career development program (sending a resume, cover letter, and unofficial transcript), and got a call back for an interview.

A interviewer came on campus, and I interviewed for about 45 minutes. I honestly thought I did poorly in it though (just a mulligan of an interview). They said I would hear back in about 2 weeks for a second interview if I was selected but I didn't hear back, I figured I didn't get selected for the second round.

Two months later, I received an email from their HR department asking me to fill out a more thorough interview to "complete your interview process." I thought that was weird because I hadn't heard from them in two months, but I did so. Two days later, I received a phone call with an offer.

Interview Question – Why investment operations?
Why T. Rowe Price?
Biggest weaknesses?
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, as it is an internship.

Investment Operations Intern Interview

Investment Operations Intern
Owings Mills, MD

I interviewed at T. Rowe Price in December 2013.

Interview Details – I sent a resume to a friend who worked for the company, who passed it along to the head recruiter. About a month later I got a call to interview. I went to their office for an interview with a manager that lasted close to an hour. All the questions were behavioral based- very generic ones. Since I was one of the first people they interviewed, it took a little over two months for them to get back to me.

Interview Question – Why do you think you think you would be a fit for this particular position?   View Answer

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at T. Rowe Price.

Interview Details – I submitted my resume through campus recruiting. The interview was pretty standard; nothing out of expectations. Two female associates interviewed me and wrote down my answers. I guess they were not the ones to decide if I were hired or not. The interview was pretty laid back and lasted for half an hour. They called back about 2 weeks later.

Interview Question – What do you think is the best and worst thing about teamwork? What was the greatest challenge you've encountered and how have you overcome it?   Answer Question

Transaction Representative Interview

Transaction Representative
Colorado Springs, CO

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at T. Rowe Price in October 2013.

Interview Details – Received an almost immediate response to my resume submission. Recruiter set up a phone interview. Recruiter was late calling me at our set appointment time.

Interview Question – Interview was mostly a regurgitation of my resume. A few questions about why I chose to apply for TRP and if I was being "choosy" in the companies I apply to. The most difficult question being the "behavior" questions..."tell me about a time when..."   Answer Question
