    Funds Pricing Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    The process was long however the interview went well.

    They first ask you to complete a lot of paperwork online. They ask detailed questions and run background checks after your in person interview.

    once you are screened on the phone and they like you, they ask you for in person interview which is fairly easy.

    Keep in mind that this is a large scale company and they have a lot of steps in the process so they don't move very quickly.

    Interview Questions

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    I began the process when a recruiter found my resume on Monster. He put me in touch with the local manager.

    The interview process was very streamlined. I didn't know it until later but the first interview was really the only one. I interviewed with the branch manager and once he moved me to the next level it was fairly clear I had to royally screw something up to not get a formal offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Where else are you looking? (It didn't seem tough at the time but the feedback from the recruiter made it clear)   1 Answer
