    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UMB Financial Corporation.

    Interview

    The first two interviews were very relaxed. The first call was a prescreening interview in which the interviewer went through every line of the resume. The next step is a 1-hour long behavioral interview that was intensely in depth about emotions and feelings of situations. The process was very quick, which is nice. The following interview involves an actual campus tour.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UMB Financial Corporation.

    Interview

    Went through several different interviews. They were quite detailed and good conversations. After getting commitments for next steps and timelines for communications, there was just silence. They sent out no letters, made no phone calls, or any other type of communication indicating they went another direction.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at UMB Financial Corporation.

    Interview

    I received a call from someone at fund services who wished to ask me a few questions about my qualifications during a phone screen for the position I had applied for. He was very nice and asked me to fill out a profile on the company careers page so he could have a better idea of my expectations. He called me back about an hour after I had completed the form online and stated the potential salary for the position was much lower than my expectation and asked how I had arrived at my requested salary. I explained that I had done in-depth research on the market averages for the alternative investments specialist position and had requested an amount nearly 15% below the median (which is significantly below the average) and also that this has been my area of study for three+ years now. The amount that he offered was nearly 50% below the market median and asked if I would be willing to negotiate. I advised him that the amount offered was likely too far from my expectations to go through the remainder of the interview. I would have had a completely pleasant experience; however, when he originally saw my expectation he chuckled aloud and said,"I don't know of any entry-level position that will pay that." If UMB would like to compete with the larger and more successful banks, I would suggest that they begin paying market-competitive salaries.

    Interview

    Pretty laid back, can be intimidating. You NEED to be confident. Just go into it thinking you're going to get the job, they like to pick at you if you look like you're not confident in yourself.
