    Average Interview

    Interview

    Three phone interviews over the course of three weeks. Asked basic questions about the bond market and my resume. Interviews were all very relaxed and casual, but process for interviewing was extremely disorganized and it would take multiple days to set up single phone calls. No contact after third phone interview, overall a very negative experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NISA Investment Advisors in August 2016.

    Interview

    A phone interview, followed by an onsite interview with different supervisors from all operations departments meeting for about 30 minutes with each, and a final interview shadowing employees in each department. I enjoyed meeting and shadowing current employees because it gave a great sense of the office culture, daily tasks and provided a platform to ask informal questions. Everyone I met was very nice and helpful.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at NISA Investment Advisors.

    Interview

    30 minute phone call as I was not able to travel to St. Louis for the first meeting. The phone call was run by two employees and asked a services of Bond questions and general knowledge questions along with the traditional gambit of skills and past experience.

    Round two was an all day affair in the St. Louis offices. Interviewed by each group within the operations department. Each interview was around 25 minutes and these were more about team skills and developed skills learned over the years.

    Then came shadowing where I sat at the desk of several employees while they showed me what they did, pretty self explanatory they just want to know what position you would be the most interested in.
