I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Wedbush Securities in February 2010.

Interview Details – I applied online and got a call within a week. Had a 15 min. detailed phone interview and got invited for an in-person. During the in-person interview I had to take a math/logic test which I found to be very easy and they give you a calculator. Then, I met with a recruiter for about 30 minutes and then a hiring manager. Both were very pleasant and professional.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wedbush Securities in February 2014.

Interview Details – Hiring process is sort of convoluted. If you have contacts, it is easier to get an interview. Recruiting on campus is a plus. Interview was straightforward since I am an engineering major. Had macro based market type questions and a few brain teasers. The phone interview was mostly fit questions.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wedbush Securities in October 2009.

Interview Details – Meet with 3 people and a final decision is made. Questions are more so about fit rather than technical skills.

Interview Question – Do not expect tough questions as senior management and staff are dumb. They just want to fill the empty seats in the office.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. The firm/senior management is very stingy on compensation.

The process took a day - interviewed at Wedbush Securities in October 2011.

Interview Details – I applied to an internship at Wedbush through their online jobs database. A HR professional at the firm then contacted me, and I kept in contact with her to talk about the internship. After meeting her in person, I made an appointment to go to the firm and interview with a VP. I was asked basic questions about my background, why I was interested in this internship, etc. At the end of the interview, I met the team and made a work schedule on the spot.
