    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was contacted for an interview with HR, which went well. About a month later, I was called back for an interview with a hiring manager and several other managers, which also went well. Then, I was offered a position pending "successful completion of a background check." This stage went on for about 2 months, with HR continually pushing back the start date while not giving a reason. Eventually, I discovered that the offer had been withdrawn, based on a mistake that their background service made, with no chance to correct it. Now, I'm unemployed and can't even get unemployment insurance because I quit my prior job on receipt of this offer. It was a terrible experience, to say the least.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    i only interviewed with one manager as I was over qualified for the role I was applying for and over prepared for the interview. However, typically you would interview with a number of people on the team, who are usually very nice and pleasant. Just remember we are all human and they will be looking for your personal qualities as much as professional ones as they want to see if you are a good fit for the team

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in August 2011.

    Interview

    HR called me and set up an interview the next week. I was suppose to meet up with three managers but they had an emergency at the department and I ended up meeting the Head department. The manager explained the position and asked me the usual questions (situational Q), I wasn't asked any technical Finance/Accounting Q's. I finished the interview in 30 minutes which I thought was too short but to be honest there was nothing more to say. I wasn't asked a lot of the silly questions where they tell you "tell us about a situation where you disagreed with a boss or when you used your creativity and the like!!"

    Negotiation

    It is an entry level position and they offered me the max in the range so I didn't care to negotiate because I know it is fixed and I was satisfied.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Bengaluru (India)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview is 4 elaborate rounds before HR, I was informed. They are - Aptitude, GD, Techincal, Analytical. The final round is HR.
    Reporting time was 8am for me but the process started at like 11.20. Around 200 candidates were there both from UG and PG. (if you are attending an interview think about how you are going to stand out among all these people and also please make sure you are perfect in your theory and concepts of finance).

    If you are going through employee referrals it may take more than 8 hours for 2 rounds of interview depending on the crowd. Today was a Saturday so there were no other employees and the people did not organize it well as they were under staffed to handle 300 people.

    Interview Questions

    • Did not get through aptitude. Aptitude had 3 sections.
      1. Finance - but also had logical reasoning combined. Nothing from concepts of boats & streams, trains, permutation combination, series, time & distance, ages were on it. I had a lot of problems that focused profit & loss, percentages, equation based and logical reasoning.
      2. English Grammar - very basic and easy - was/were, tenses, find the error, prepositions.
      3. Attention to detail - my favourite section because it's like those whatsapp messages you get - find the number 8 amongst like 50 random numbers, The questions were really fun and basically tested on how good you are at identifying things and matching it to certain criteria. Questions also like "find the digit/letter pair in the eighth position in the following" and they gave random numbers and letters.   1 Answer

    Interview

    There were four long rounds which comprised of aptitude.GD,technical and HR.
    Aptitude was easy but GD was a bit intense and technical for me was a bit easy but for others it seemed most difficult.HR was as usual just personal things.
