    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview/screening with a recruiter, then got contacted about two video interviews with employees in Systems department -- these were almost all behavioral questions, most of it was just going over my resume and asking me about various experiences. Recruiter called me 5 days later with an offer.

    Interview

    The interview process was difficult. I had three sets of people interview for different position within the company. Took a very long time for a response from HR to hire. Also two months.

    Interview

    Applied in October and heard from a recruiter in November. Set up a phone interview in late November and then had another interview in their NYC office. Whole process was lengthy and communication from HR was inefficient. Often had to send multiple e-mails to get any information from them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Brown Brothers Harriman (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR was very straightforward. The recruiter asked what you would expect from a phone screening (why BBH, why finance, why your school/major, etc.). About 10 days later, I received an email informing me that I moved on to the final round, which was in-person or via Skype and consisted of two 30-minute interviews with two interviewers per session. The first session was mostly behavioral questions targeted towards my resume, past experience, and interest/knowledge in investment management. The second session was more relaxed and I was asked questions about my hobbies and interests outside of finance and school. Overall, the interviewers were definitely looking for candidates that would fit their company culture and they did not expect you to have much, if any, in-depth finance knowledge.
