    Assistant Account Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mesirow Financial (Chicago, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    There were some unanswered phone calls from the recruiter following initial contact and then a rush to set an interview date/time. I interviewed with HR and then shortly after had a short interview with the department manager. At a separate time, I was interviewed by a couple of potential direct managers and then by what would be other people in the department in a group at the same meeting. This was followed by a wait for the offer (you also had to take a drug test) and then a push to drop everything and start immediately, if not sooner. I had to push back and insist on giving two weeks’ notice to my soon to be former employer.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview included very basic run-of-the mill questions such as tell me about your experience as we went through my job history. There was talk of the experience being related to the specific job. I was asked why I wanted to leave my current job. The was absolutely no tricky questions such as 'what is your biggest weakness' or 'if you were an animal, what animal would you be?'. Having said that at the time I knew someone. There was questioning by what would be the person you would work with and then others in the department.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mesirow Financial in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website and received an email a few days later requesting a phone interview. The hiring rep who called me was nice and engaging. He listened to my qualifications and didn't sound disparaging towards me at all. It was less nerve wracking than I thought it'd be since Mesirow is a well-known company.
