    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL).

    Phone interview was the basic screening process asking about goals, salary requirements, basic qualifications, etc. Only took about 15 minutes. I came in the following week for an in person interview and met with four members of the team. The interview had barely any technical questions and was mostly focused on getting to know you and making sure you were a good fit with the team. Good experience overall.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was delayed and very sketchy ... two people just stroll in and barely had any questions . They had decided before they entered I could see that . I have a double degre in accounting yet this place appoints ppl without accounting degree of experience ... ppl who have worked for McDonald's have gotten positions i interviewed for here . Hiring is skewed .

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was scheduled within a week after applying. Met with HR, immediate supervisor and next level manager individually at the same interview, which was convenient. HR informed me decision would be made quickly, within a week or two, but it took 2 months for a decision to be made. A lot of scenario questions.. give me an example of how you handled this.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter and interviewed a week later. I interviewed with 5 people in one day. Everyone made me feel very comfortable and the interview was more conversational and focused on my background. There were very few behavioral and technical questions. I spent way too much time preparing for technical questions, which probably hurt me in the end. I'd recommend directing preparation to your background and achievements. As others have mentioned, bring water. The interviews were each 30 min long and right on top of eachother so I didn't get a chance to get up for a break. I was told that a decision would be made within 2 weeks and then I never heard one way or another if a decision had been made.
