    Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    5-7 boilerplate interview questions. They don't take kindly to a lack of work related experience, a little weird considering I was applying to an internship but whatever. Considering the other interviewees (and myself) I met in the lobby it was obvious they were looking for minorities to hire.

    Interview Questions

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    A month after I replied I received an email to schedule a phone interview with a recruiter from Arizona. Standard phone interview was conducted and set up an in person interview about 3 days later in the Chicago office. The in person interview was conducted by two managers in the Financial Reporting department. Both managers asked questions back and forth. Interview lasted about 40 mins. After my interview sent thank you emails to both managers. Stay on top of recruiters if you want any type of feedback whether that be a job offer or not because they will not contact if you did not get the job unless you are a bug about it.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about background, work experience, 5 year goal, why Northern Trust, why financial reporting, etc. The last question was why should they pick you over another candidate   Answer Question
