    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Meketa Investment Group (San Diego, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Received a call from HR, questions were very straight forward, but asked multiple times. The lady interviewing me via phone call did not understand some of my answers as i went into more depth than what she probably expected.

    some of the more simple questions were asked multiple times throughout the interview but with a different spin."Why do you want to work here?" then a few minutes later "What interests you about our organization that leads you to want to work here?"

    Interview Questions

    • What stocks do you invest in, why? how do you valuate an asset?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Meketa Investment Group (Westwood, MA).

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR was fairly straightforward and mostly just asked behavior questions. Was invited for an in-person interview where I met with the head of HR and various investment staff. No truly challenging technical questions were asked. There was a GMAT math section test, a proofreading test and an Excel skill test administered through both interview days. Most questions were just geared towards why I want to work in Investment Consulting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Meketa Investment Group in May 2015.

    Interview

    Got a call for a phone screening from HR about a week after submitting my resume. The call was on time and the interviewer was nice. Overall the conversation was very thorough, and kept asking for elaboration of what I felt was the same question, just worded differently. Also asked about salary expectations and what my current salary is. I felt they were kind of pushy on that one when I didn't want to say and was kind of rude. Said will make follow up a week later regarding in person interviews if we are selected but never heard anything back. I reach out but was ignored for another week before any answer. Overall, nice people, just kind annoying that they don't tell you when you don't get the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Meketa, why finance, what can you bring to the company, experience with excel, what do you know about us?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Meketa Investment Group (Westwood, MA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    HR phone screen followed by an in person interview a few weeks later. Interviewer/hiring manager was incredibly smug and arrogant. Many of my answers to open-ended questions were met with condescending remarks. The process seemed rather disorganized as 2 different people in HR asked me a lot of the exact same questions.

    I would not recommend working here

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Meketa Investment Group (Westwood, MA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Fairly easy interview process. HR phone screening, manager phone interview.
    After I was invited for the first on the site interview. Two weeks later - for another on the site interview. Second in person interview also had Excel, Maths, and Verbal skills tests, but they were easy.

    Interview experience could have been better, if the interviewers sat in groups of 3 or 4, asking questions collaboratively instead of all of them coming in separately and asking very similar or even the same questions again.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic competency questions: walk through the CV, what projects did you do, team work skills.
      Why this company?
      Why this industry?
      What other companies did you apply to?   Answer Question
