    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview, asking about current financial situations. Was relatively easy, asked to come in from an interview. As long as your are relaxed and answer questions to the best of your ability, you'll be fine. Sales is also important in a job like this, you will most likely be cold calling.

    Negotiation
