    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aberdeen Asset Management (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Worked through recruiter, spoke over the phone with company. Had one person in Europe, another in America. Both peppered me with questions; did some small talk at the start. Very mindful of 15 minute time, though we went over. Discussed my technical background, how I worked in a team environment. At the end, no offer, because I have a slight speech impediment..they said that showed human weakness...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Aberdeen Asset Management (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Applied through email and received an response a week later to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview, done by an HR assistant, was short and sweet- they just wanted to get more information regarding my background. Was asked to come in for an interview three days later.

    Two interviews: one with a Senior Manager, another with a HR Representative. He asked questions pertaining to the job and my qualifications, my hobbies and what I thought I could bring to the table. She didn't really ask anything, we just chatted. This was on a Monday.

    On Wednesday they sent an email letting me know that I was no longer being considered. I responded to thank them for their time, and to ask for feedback. No response.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aberdeen Asset Management (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly quick. It consisted of one group interview with two managers and an HR representative. It is very behavioral based. The company culture is more about fit than technical skills because it is a very social place.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were pretty textbook, I get the feeling they are the sort that care more about interests than your particular skills set or background since you will learn it all on the job.   Answer Question
