    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 Eventually, I discovered that the offer had been withdrawn, based on a mistake that their background service made, with no chance to correct it.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!!"

    Interview Questions

    • We interviewed 2 very qualified candidates for this position, why should we hire you over them?   2 Answers

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Mangalore (India)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was my first interview ever. I cleared Group Discussion, aptitude test without any problem. The technical interview was a bit challenging since it was new experience. No negotiation with HR on salary was possible and had to accept whatever they offered.
