    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Chatham Financial (Kennett Square, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    A combination of brain teasers, logic puzzles, math tests, and extensive behavior questions. Everyone was very friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed which definitely put the interview nerves at ease.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chatham Financial (Kennett Square, PA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Initial Skype call with questions about my past experiences and motivations. Then I was invited onsite, which was a paid flight across the country, rental car + hotel. The onsite interview consisted of quite a few rounds (I think 4) of technical, brain teaser, and cross functional interviews.

    Since I answered all other questions quite well, I expect the reason I did not get an offer was because of my performance on the brain teaser I was given. That being said, I haven't found myself performing brain teasers very often while developing software, so I'm not sure why they ask them. I performed quite well on all the coding interviews, which I imagine would be a better indicator of programming skills.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chatham Financial (Kennet Sq, PA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with HR and 2 execs. The call lasted about 30 mins. They spoke to me about the position and asked why I was interested in working with them. They wanted to know what my average day at my current employer was like and why I wanted to leave them. Basic stuff but I have to admit as bad as I wanted the job there was no synergy at all. Maybe I was just off that day as I normally interview really well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chatham Financial (Kennet Sq, PA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by HR two weeks later to schedule time for a screening call. Several days after the call I was contacted to schedule a two hour interview at their office in Kennet Square. I found the timed "visual games" and additional questions to be challenging, although I was familiar with the majority of them after reading an article from inc.com outlining Google's Toughest Interview Questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Chatham Financial (Kennet Sq, PA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I took a personality quiz and a couple of math problems when I applied online. Afterwards, I was given a HackerRank challenge, which consisted of 4 questions reviewing my Java, HTML, and SQL skills. I then proceeded to a Skype interview with 2 software engineers, who asked me to reverse a string. I did it in Python, but they asked me to do it in Java. They noted some things they didn't like when I coded in Java, but overall they seemed quite happy. That was why I was surprised when I was notified I did not get an offer. They never explained why.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Chatham Financial (Kennett Square, PA).

    Interview

    I applied through my graduate school after Chatham did an on-campus information session. First round Skype interview with someone in HR, second round Skype interview with a Consultant there, final round was in-person in Kennett Square. The process moved very quickly, I received notice of next round and offer within one week of each interview. For the final round they flew me down to their HQ in Kennett Square, PA for a full-day consisting of a tour of the office and several quantitative tests followed by 5 two-on-one interviews throughout the day, with lunch provided in the middle. Everyone I spoke with was candid and seemed to genuinely enjoy working at Chatham. The questions were challenging and varied significantly from the generic questions you typically hear, plus they typically asked interesting follow-up questions.

    Summer Analyst Interview

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Chatham Financial (Kennett Square, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was a pretty tough interview process. I had four interviews, one skype and three via phone. The skype one was more a "get to know you" type deal. The phone interviews, on the other hand, were harder. A few personality questions and then one or two harder math questions. The problem was that at times I didn't understand exactly what they were looking for in the answer. And that's what got me in the end...
