    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Lord Abbett & Co. (Jersey City, NJ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by third party recruiter who informed me of the oportunity. Phone interview was the week after . A Regional consultant team leader calls and they want to get to know you, high level questions "why this college, why finance, why sales, etc".

    I went in for two Face to face inerviews , but I had heard in the past it was only one.

    Met with 2 regional consultants and maybe two or three higher ups, walked thru my resume then sat with a RC and shadowed him for 40 min. Tell me some current market news , tell me about yourself , etc nothing too technical

    Know their products and history / fund awards

    Second round was similar.

    Overall was a good process, young atmosphere RC wise and would have accepted offer if it weren't for a better opportunity

    Investment Researcher Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lord Abbett & Co. (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Rude and patronizing interview from a group that is a mediocre performer. After having produced a strong track record managing a multi-billion dollar investment process, the interviewer suggested that I might be good enough to be a junior researcher tending to 'lite' research topics.

    The Glassdoor reviews of Lord Abbett warned of some defective and arrogant personalities, and sure enough, my interviewer delivered on all counts. Life is too short to work with these sorts of people...

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Lord Abbett & Co. (Jersey City, NJ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter on Linkedin, spoke with them and was set up for an in person interview at LA & Co within a few days.

    I was given an online skills tests to test my competency.

    Got to LA & Co, and was escorted into the IT Lab. In the lab, I was given a few minutes to explain my work experience and job duties. Then a few more IT professionals came in the room and began to barrage me with technical questions, barely giving me enough time to answer. They were rude and abrasive, I was definitely turned off to the position and the company as a whole.

    I however, was able to answer there questions, and was scheduled for a second interview.

    After a couple of days of phone-tag with my recruiter, I was not able to schedule a second interview.

    Still awaiting a response.

Overall, the process evaluated every aspect of my candidacy and was fair in many regards. No unnecessary stressful questions but a good thorough review of my skills and abilities and background.

    Interview

    I landed the initial interview through a NYC recruiter at the end of August. Everyone who interviews for any position at this organization always has to get through interviewing with the HR Manager first. If you are successful, the HR Manager will let your recruiter know and they will call you back to interview with the people you might work with/for. If you are not successful, the HR Manager will also provide that feedback to your recruiter, and your recruiter will let you know that the HR Manager passed.
