    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Federated Investors (Pittsburgh, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview, which lasted about an hour. The part that troubled me was I was sent a packet of employment forms afterwards and a lot of personal information such as SSN, background screening auth, etc. was asked of me without having a job offer.
