    Interview

    I had a Skype interview and then a phone call interview. Basic behavioral questions, nothing crazy. If you wanna do good in these kinds of interviews, I would suggest that you learn more about the interviewers themselves. Learn a fun fact about him or her and then build upon it.

    Also review what the company does and check out the awards that they got.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northern Trust (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Mainly behavioral questions and also asked about my excel proficiency. First round interview was on Skype with a recruiter and the second round was with a manager in the department I applied for. Second round was a lot more relaxed than first I must say, but that will depend on the person you speak.
