    Tech Support Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Mill, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LPL Financial (Fort Mill, SC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    About 30 minutes long with two managers. Setting was relaxed but professional. Interview took on a conversational flow, and I could tell both managers were keenly interested in mutually sharing information, so it felt like I was interviewing them as much as they were me, which is a good start for finding a fitting team member. I felt that they valued my time in front of them and never had a feeling of being pressured or scrutinized.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Encino, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LPL Financial (Encino, CA).

    Interview

    It felt very unorganized. The advisor that I was interviewing with was late, which is understandable, but also took a 5 min phone call in the middle of the interview. They seemed very unprepared for the interview, making up the interview questions as they went along. They explained the business a bit. Its a small office that uses the LPL platform but the position wasn't for the company LPL Financial.

    They wanted me to interview the other advisor in the office but abruptly ended our conversation, by saying, ok thats all we need to know about that, thanks for coming in! If I had to sum it up in one word, I'd say, "Unprofessional"

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. What are your hobbles? Tell me about your last role? Why did you leave? Can we contact them?

      Also very inappropriate questions like, do you have kids? Are planning on having kids? What ethnicity are you?

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Phone interview is basic, may ask a few questions about whether or not you have Excel, PowerPoint, Sharepoint, etc. experience. In-person interview is more technical and to see if you are a good fit for their team. The recruiters and interviewers were nice and it seemed like they were genuinely interested in you succeeding and getting the job there.
