    Interview Questions

    • 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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at T. Rowe Price (Baltimore, MD) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I attended an on-campus interview and am still waiting to hear regarding whether or not I have an offer. The interview was straightforward and was comprised of mostly behavioral questions, though I was asked a few basic mental math questions.

    The head of the Investment Fellowship program interviewed, alongside a previous member of the Investment Fellowship. Overall their demeanor was great and I had no problem asking them my questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at T. Rowe Price (Owings Mills, MD) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Met recruiter at the career fair and gave resume. I then was told to apply online and recruiter was going to match the resumes she got at the career fair to the ones online. I got a call and went into their office the following week. The process consisted of 4 different interviewers each interviewing for a half hour and then switching. All behavioral questions were asked. "Tell me a time when..." It is now going on 5 weeks and never heard anything from the company.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at T. Rowe Price (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    The hiring started at my college. This lead to a phone interview. After a tour of the office and introduction PowerPoint presentation, you will probably interview with 2 employees: typically 2 supervisors. The interview primarily deals with behavioral style questions. They're looking for specific questions and detailed answers. "What was your thought process?" Interviews are about an hour long. They're looking for a good story teller. Also, be prepared to answer the "why you" in other words- why should we choose you.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time you: motivated a team, accomplished a goal, dealt with a complicated client issue.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not a negotiating firm.

    Personal Services Client Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at T. Rowe Price (Colorado Springs, CO).

    Interview

    T. Rowe Price hires internally for most of their positions. I started in the Retail Investment Services group and then was asked to apply for the Personal Services group (High Dollar Value). Interview process is pretty straight-forward behavioral questions. "Tell me about a time when..." This department focuses on service excellence and sales, so the questions center around times that you provided particularly good service or when you were able to uncover an 'unstated need' AKA sales opportunity and help a client there.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. Unfortunately, T. Rowe basically knows who they are going to promote before they interview. If interviewing externally, then be prepared for questions that ask about collaboration and cooperation. Be cautious of questions that seem to ask about times you did something without prompting or direction, because they don't want people who are TOO independent.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Pay structure is fixed and there is little (perhaps none) room for negotiation for non-exempt employees.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at T. Rowe Price (Baltimore, MD) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online via my school's career job board. Heard back few days later to come in for an interview. There were five interviews with three PMs, one trader and another analyst. The interviews were relaxed and very informal. No tough questions, mostly fit. I was asked weird and inappropriate questions by the trader though. Like, about my relationship status etc. When I asked him if how he felt about the company, he said that he hated it except for the benefits. Other than that one interviewer, everyone else seemed normal.
