Private Client Associate Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AllianceBernstein (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2017.

Interview

It was a pretty standard interview. Basic interview 101 questions. Went over resume then questions were asked. Did not take longer than 45 minutes. Pleasant overall experience and nothing poor to say regarding it. It would be a good company to work for given the right fit.

Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AllianceBernstein in March 2017.

    Interview

    Disorganized and unprofessional. I had an 8:30 a.m. appointment and arrived in the lobby just minutes before. There was no receptionist. I understand I was probably the first person, but shouldn't the receptionist arrive before the interviewee?

    I saw one of the interviewers in the lobby/elevator and the person told me we were supposed to meet later. Well, that person never showed up. I had also written down 4 names and they rotated one other person without giving me any notice.

    For a company who is allegedly supposed to be so great, these were not good first impressions. Also, the place sounded absolutely miserable for the (low) compensation. Totally not worth it. Was going to the interview as a favor but made me appreciate where I currently am.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at AllianceBernstein in November 2015.

    Interview

    Casual interview with an HR rep followed by multiple interviews in a "superday" format, nearly all "fit" based questions. I thought the interview went well but I never even heard a rejection from them, which I found unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at AllianceBernstein (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Met with four individuals in a two hour block. It was a pretty generic "tell me about a time when you overcame..." We mostly talked about the position, responsibilities, and what would be expected. They asked why I would be good in the role and then asked what questions I have.
