    Merrill Edge/Customer Service Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (New York, NY) in June 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process was fine. Behavioral questions, HR and managers were friendly. However, I was told I would have a follow up in the middle of last week. I have not heard anything back. I did email HR recruiter and thanked her for the time and consideration as well and haven't heard anything from her. I am assuming at this point that I did not get the job, but it would have been nice to at least get an email saying that they went with another candidate.
