    Some genuine people here but are muscled out occasionally .


    Too much corruption if your not part of the crowd. If your a threat you can be sabotaged.

    Investment Graduate Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Schroders (London, England (UK)) in July 2015.


    Submitted a CV and cover letter through their online system, along with 200 word answers to some questions related to investment management. If they like your answers here and you performed well in the numerical / inductive reasoning tests, you will be invited to do a video interview through Sonru. This was the strangest part I thought. There were 5 questions, mainly competence based and it felt much more pressurised to be filmed talking directly into your camera instead of having someone on the other end to interact with. My process was slightly different as I did not attend an assessment centre, and the final round was simply an interview with two managers after spending ten minutes making notes on a case study in isolation. Interviewers were very friendly and the environment was quite relaxed.
