    First one will fill out an online app with information regarding their education and work experience. Next is a phone interview, then a super day (in person interview). Applicants have two 30 minute interviews, which were both pretty similar.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from one of the financial advisors who had also gone to my university. She asked me to come in for an interview the following week and provided me with advice on how to best get to the location.
    For the interview, I was interviewed by the aforementioned financial advisor and the VP of the department at the downtown Chicago BoA-Merrill Lynch building. Both were very nice and not too intense.
    The interview was difficult because they did not ask the typical questions you get asked in interviews in which you're able to provide well-rehearsed answers that you know showcase your skills and experience. Rather, the interview was incredibly casual and lasted possibly 20 minutes, making it difficult to clearly articulate who you are. Seems as if they were more so looking for someone they can get along with as a team member since they only brought in interviewees that had already passed the finance resume test, which I believe is a fair hiring criteria.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you deal with multiple tasks/projects at the same time?
      What are you looking for in a summer internship?
      Do you have any questions for us?
      There may have been one or two other questions but I do not remember.   Answer Question

    I thought the interview was pretty straight forward. They asked me the tell me about yourself question which after reviewing previous responses on here I was prepared for. We walked through my resume as well as what the position entails. The internship was unpaid for 12 weeks and after that if both sides wanted to it could become a part time job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    It was a very conversational interview, pretty much 100% behavioral. They just asked about my interests in general as well as why I was interested in working at Merrill Lynch and working with their group. Overall pleasant and easy experience, and the internship taught me a lot of about finance and personal finance.
