“I joined ConvergEx a number of years ago for two main reasons. The first was for the caliber of people at all levels across the organization. The senior management of the firm provides strong leadership and the staff is full of young, talented people who share a common vision. Secondly, ConvergEx provided a huge opportunity for someone like myself to make a difference by providing and encouraging a true entrepreneurial environment.” – Bill Capuzzi, managing director and head of ConvergEx’s global execution.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at ConvergEx in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The HR contact was very friendly, albeit a bit unprofessional. I had a series of phone screens and then they asked me to come in for an in-person interview. I had to fly in from out of state and asked if they would reimburse my travel expenses and they agreed to reimburse 'reasonable' expenses. I met with the two HR folks who were very nice. I enjoyed my conversations with both of them and they spent most of the time asking me questions about my resume and background...pretty standard stuff. At the end of the interview, they were both very encouraging and told me that I would hear from them soon. I sent a thank you email the next day and also inquired about the reimbursement process. They informed me that they would be in touch with me in a few weeks and, if I didn't hear from them, to make sure to follow-up. They didn't answer my question regarding reimbursement so I figured I'd broach the subject again in the next email. I waited three weeks and then followed-up, per my instructions. I was told to follow-up in 3 days. I sent my follow-up email, didn't hear anything, and then sent one more regarding my reimbursement and still to this day have not heard anything. They still owe me my reimbursement expenses and I have a feeling I will not be receiving any money from them. Beyond my frustration with their lack of follow-through, they were also extremely unprofessional by not communicating with me. It takes 2 minutes to write a TBNT email but it is totally unacceptable to provide no notification to a candidate that spent $400 to come in for an in-person interview. Based on my experience with the company throughout the entire process, they seem extremely unorganized and I would be wary of any promises that they make you. I wouldn't work there unless it was a last resort.

    *Update 10/9: Received an email with reimbursement instructions. Better 2 and a half months late than never, I suppose!
