    Operations Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NISA Investment Advisors (Saint Louis, MO) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone screening with two recruiters. Disappointing because I learned very little about the actual position as I believe they were recruiting for operations analysts for several departments.

    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.
