    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Met with two associates for a 30 minute interview for a summer intern position on-campus. It was mostly behavioral questions but some more technical questions. I recently switched majors from a non-finance major, so I was asked to elaborate on that and on relevant coursework that I have taken since switching.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I had to complete a two tests. I had two phone screens and then went in person to meet with the head of recruiting. The I had to meet with 3 advisors and come up with a business plan. Along the way several people contacted me and it seemed as if nobody had talked to each other. I was constantly explaining what step I was on and during the process the secretary got fired. There was a lag in response time and finally they said the position was not available. They said they would contact me if something came available. A waste of time.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I used an online application process after my uni made me aware of the opportunity. Submitted my cover letter, resume, and transcript and I got a call within a couple of weeks. Three more phone interviews and countless emails later, they extended an offer, non-negotiable. I happily accepted. Process was quick, easy, and pleasant (for an internship in the financial services industry, that is).
