    Senior Communication Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LPL Financial.

    Interview

    LPL contacted me soon after I applied online. The phone screen was typical and the recruiter was very pleasant.

    No further communications followed. It's amazing how many companies justify using automated systems to reject resumes, but choose not to use the same technology to send a form rejection following actual interviews.

    Finance Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at LPL Financial (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was standard starting with phone screen and onsite interview. The questions were standard with a bit of fit and technical questions. However I was not impressed with the interviewers. They lacked interpersonal skills when having a face to face interview, which probably stems from their back office mentality. They even failed to offer water/coffee upon arrival.

    To prospective interviewers be prepared for indecisive hiring managers and a drawn out screening and interview process. "Ghosting" seems to be the policy.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I was asked to have a phone screen and then was invited for an interview. I actually had two interviews, one with the VP of the department and the other with the head of the department and their design team. They asked me questions about my experience and had me present an elearning module I had created. Halfway through the painfully awkward interview I knew I was not going to get this job.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at LPL Financial (San Diego, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening, half hour phone interview, half day interview. The half day interview was strange because I felt like I continued to be asked the same thing by different people. I also felt like I couldn't get a good idea as to what they were looking for. I kept asking about the particular position I had applied to and everyone continued to tell me their were three positions. However, I could not get specific detail on any of the three.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Encino, CA

    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?   Answer Question
