    Anonymous Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, MA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Charles River Development (Burlington, MA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The process was typical - phone screen, round robin of interviews, presentation. There was an IQ test and a writing sample required, which I found weird, but hey, to each their own. The interview and the company were not awful; I was enthusiastic about having the opportunity to interview. The reason I am giving a negative review is because with all the effort I put into the interview, they never had the courtesy to loop me in to where I was in the process. The recruiter kept up for a little bit, but then just vanished. I interviewed for this role in July, 2016 and to this day, the position is still open. It was a shame, really, because I felt like I brought a lot to the table. Also, since I was an employee referral, I feel that a little professional courtesy should have been extended in the follow-up process, especially given the energy and effort that went into the whole process. It has left a sour taste in my mouth all together.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the most challenging part about being (this role) and how do you handle that?
      From one interviewer: "I won't sugar coat this, I can be really difficult. How do you handle difficult people?" (This one threw me off a little, especially hearing from someone self-promoting their inability to adjust and change within a team environment while making it clear that they were the issue.)

    Implementation Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Charles River Development (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    This is quite a long interview process, but at the same time I find it quite reassuring that people are so vetted. though I do hope that does not mean everyone takes himself or herself too seriously after!

    Contrary to what others have said I did find it pretty easy, just a lot of time and work.

    I met four people in total for competency based interviews, as well as soft skills interviews, which went well but I was very well prepared.
    I also passed an analytical reasoning test which is based on LSAT I believe, I was warned that it was hard, and it said so in other reviews, but I passed quite easily.
    I also had a written assessment to write.

    Interview Questions

    • LSAT test (analytical reasoning), this does require preparation..   Answer Question
    • Compentency based questions such as : what is the difference between repos in the UK, France and Italy, or which market data do you need to value such and such asset class...etc.   Answer Question

    Initial phone screen of Java and SQL questions, followed by an in person interview in 4 sections, mostly technical.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. Few days after I had a phone call with CRD recruitment department. where they made sure I have right background and then forwarded my resume to hiring managers. 2nd interview was with hiring manager over the phone we discussed the technologies and projects followed by some technical questions. They called me in for onsite interview since went there from Philadelphia have to wake up 3:00AM to get to the flight. Then it was about an hr from the office. After the whole day of interview I felt it went well as I did fairly good on their analytic test and technical question during the interview. The hiring manager found that everything was good but I was low on energy. A humble opinion if someone gets up 3:00 Am and travels till 9:00 to interview venue it makes sense to get little lazy till lunch.
