    Interview Questions

    • They asked about the history of Bessemer Trust. I would suggest reading up on the family prior to your interview. I was also asked about specific skills required to do the job. It's a small office and they want to be sure they hire someone who will be the right fit for the team and the culture.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bessemer Trust Company (Woodbridge, NJ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Was pretty much a general experience. I applied via an internship website and was contacted by the interviewer a week later. Interview lasted about an hour. I did not receive the offer and was awaiting other offers. It took contact from me to find out that I wasn't selected. I figured i would have gotten some sort of response after my interview. If you have another deadline to answer definitely contact them, because you may not be notified of a no offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bessemer Trust Company.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, met with a few team members in person and met with the senior management in the department and HR. I was seriously considering the offer given the comp, step up, and smaller team that I would be joining. The team was welcoming and easy to get to know except for the guy in HR who was one of the more inarticulate and condescending people I've met with. Regardless, I would consider joining in the future.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bessemer Trust Company (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was mostly behavior and not really technical. The interview was interested what I want out of wealth management. I think the role has a long term implication since it is a small firm. Most people who work there in their mid-career. The interview process has multiple rounds with associate and vps.

    Associate Client Advisor Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bessemer Trust Company.

    Interview

    My interview process consisted of 3 separate interview sessions. The first was a typical screening call which had the usual questions (why Bessemer? why you? walk me though your resume). At the end of the interview I was asked to schedule the second one. The second was actually a set of three back to back interviews with the team I would be working with. Again, I was asked standard questions and had a lengthy opportunity to ask my own. I was contacted about two weeks later by email which said I was invited to the third round. The third round was a two day process that involved seven interviews, a test, and a presentation. I found it to be relatively unstressful compared to other companies in the field and the professionalism of the team to be in a league of its own.
