PMD Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (Newport Beach, CA) in May 2017.

Interview

It was a quick telephone interview after I passed the fiat test. The recruiter was very very rude. He spoke over me and didn't let me answer my questions the way I wanted it answered. He was almost like repremanding me for giving the answer to the questions he asked. If you want to know something, then let me answer or don't waste my time. I can go somewhere else.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch (McLean, VA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    It was not a good experience interviewing with Merrill Lynch. Their hiring process is a mass. I had so many interviews, tests, and a business plan. It took me almost two month to hear a "NO". It is frustrating. They even did a background check on me. At that point I believed I would be hired. I prepared my business plan very well. First1 on 1 interviewer (director) didn't even spend a minute looking at my business plan. In the second interview, the PMD coach didn't even ask for it (he didn't even have my resume with him). It was a waste of my time and effort applying there. Now, I think I am happy I didn't work in that mass. I was looking into start a career, for sure not working with those kind of people. I don't know about other branches, but this Tyson's corner branch PMD coach and Director does not seem to hire quality people. I guess you just need to have a strong connection in the company or know many millionaires who would let you manage their money and already well trained even though it is a trainee position. I think I was more knowledgeable and have higher education than that PMD coach who was interviewing me.
