    Executive Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DTCC (Jersey City, NJ) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by their internal recruiter via email to set up two 30 minute calls with two people who would be my direct bosses.

    When the day arrived, the first woman i was supposed to speak with completely ghosted. The second person I was supposed to speak with called me late. He told me a bit about the job and generally seemed to have no personality. He became extremely flustered and defensive when I asked about the person who I would be replacing (which is a very legitimate question). He also asked if anyone at my current job knows I'm in the job market because he would need to speak with someone. I told him that is extremely premature considering I haven't even met anyone at DTCC yet and only had half of the calls by this point that I should have had. Considering the impression DTCC made by not handling a phone interview with consideration for my time, I was very offput that he had the audacity to basically demand to talk to my current job at this stage.

    I was contacted by the internal recruiter a few days later saying the man I talked to liked me and that they wanted to set up another call with the inconsiderate woman who ghosted me the first time.

    I told them thanks but no thanks and withdrew my application to pursue other things.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DTCC (Tampa, FL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email from HR a few days later. We set up a phone interview.
    I was told I would be interviewed by the hiring manager, but when I got the call, there were at least 4 or 5 other managers on the call. This was not a problem for me, but everyone, including the hiring manager were extremely rude. They don't listen to you or even make an attempt to listen to you. They don't even respond correctly when you answer a question.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DTCC (Jersey City, NJ) in January 2018.

    Interview

    First, went through initial phone screen, where they asked pretty basic questions about yourself and some behavioral questions. Was then asked backed for a second in person interview. This was back to back 30 minute interviews talking to 4 different people. It was pretty long but the people were extremely nice and the questions they asked were very basic.

    Corporate Strategy Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DTCC (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Had my resume sent in by a recruiter and was then contacted by a DTCC recruiter for an initial screening. After passing that I had a 2.5 hour in person interview with the strategy team as well as Corporate Development.

    The team itself is great and it seems like a good working environment but HR absolutely dropped the ball. Despite being told that they were looking to make a decision the night after I interviewed it was radio silence for weeks. Leaving the interview I thought an offer was 50/50 at best but my rejection arrived in the form of an automatically generated email instead of a call or even personal email from HR. Incredibly unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral/personality questions (I.e “talk about a time when...l”, “tell us feedback past managers have given.”)
      Additional questions related to the role, what strategic work I had done in the past, and my view on the industry as a whole.   Answer Question
