    I was interview telephonically by a recruiter twice. Then I was interviewed by my boss. And finally I was interviewed by my boss again, his boss and an attorney I would be working with.

    Paraplanner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arden Hills, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Arden Hills, MN) in September 2008.

    Interview

    The interview process was very smooth. We first had a phone interview for about and hour and then met the next morning. The second interview, which was the first face to face interview, was about 2 hours long. It consisted of talking about my skills as well as just myself and getting a feel for each other. Then I had a third interview with the business partner. This was more so he could get a feel for me, my personality, than about skills, etc.

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate my salary. All of the benefits offered were very satisfactory, so there was no need to discuss those.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Ameriprise (Naperville, IL) in September 2008.

    Interview

    Very in depth phone interview lasted at least 30min. Basically just wanted to feel you out. Said they would contact you if they wanted to interview you in person.

    4 days later recieved word that they would like me to interview in person.

    In person interview was basically just to make sure you looked the part very similar to phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical interview questions, whats your greatest weakness, are recent time when you didnt achieve a goal or a recent failure. I think interview questions aren't aimed at seeing how well a person is fit for a job but more a test to see how well you can interview, kinda bs to me.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    offered my $75,000 but I said I would need at least 80k to live in the San Francisco area and they obliged

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ameriprise.

    Interview

    Pretty odd. Asked questions that seemed to be taken out of a "How to Interview Someone for Jobs" book. They spoke of the position as if it was impossible. I'm not sure what they were looking for, but it must not be someone who is registered with experience in the industry.
