    I was greeted by two gentlemen who went over the companies history and also explained what the role entailed. The interview went very good, they made sure to be very detailed on what they need from the Admin. I enjoyed speaking with them.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Aegis Capital.

    Interview

    The process was very normal compared to other internship processes. The people were great and the culture is one where senior management really focuses on developing the junior team. It was a memorable experience overall.

    More behavioral questions as opposed to technical. Wanted to know more about myself. Less technical as it was ECM but still general finance concepts. 2 on 1 interview. Hiring was done within 2 weeks of clearance.

    Registered Representative Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aegis Capital (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Classic bait and switch.
    I responded to a Craiglist ad for a "junior investment banker/sales assistant" position offering a 60K salary plus incentive. I received a response later in the day to come in for an interview at NYC mid-town location. A week later when I got there I was interviewed by two young guys. One s/d the sales assistant job was for someone who had tech/software experience, though vague on the details and job description. He downplayed my experience when I explained my background. The other guy explained they also had an opening for a Registered Rep position, aka telemarketer, that would be a better fit for me. That paid 1,700 or 1,800 base per month. I actually wanted to laugh at the comedy before me. The first guy who dissuaded me from the "sales assistant" job left the room. I doubt the position even existed. The second guy then proceeds to go on and on about the registered rep position. He was a bad listener and had the whole interview scripted in his head - and probably repeated the act on a nearly daily basis since places like this are constantly hiring.
    Big thumbs down. Stay away from Aegis. Nothing but a telemarketing meat-market selling crappy deals that flop.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aegis Capital (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very simple interview process. They just ask you if you have ever prospected, and whether you feel comfortable talking to PM's at family offices. You'll speak with the "head of capital markets" who will ask if you have a heart beat. Then the "head of institutional sales" will come in and just assess if your personality is compatible with his.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aegis Capital in May 2015.

    Interview

    email exchange followed by in-person interview. office culture is what one might expect at PE, that is to say very uptight. The process involved phone screen followed by one-on-one with a director. my interview was with the venture capital division so the process might be slightly different than non-PE areas.
