    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Was contacted in July for an interview, interviewed in early August and again in late September. Process took way too long for them to respond with an answer. I found out on their website, they never contacted me about a denial. Not a great experience.

    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
