    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at OppenheimerFunds.

    Interview

    They interviewed me 4-5 times and rejected me via an automated form letter two weeks later than they said they would tell me if I got the job. The company is being acquired right now so things are very chaotic.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at OppenheimerFunds (New York, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process included 3 stages: meeting with HR, meeting with the hiring manager and the team, and meeting with the hiring manager. Additionally, I had to submit work samples as a part of the hiring process. The whole process was a bit time consuming, especially for someone with a full time job.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OppenheimerFunds (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    The recruiter reached out to me for the group interview about a week after I applied for Software Engineer position. There was no negotiation with the scheduling where they already decided the time and the date for the 3-hour group interview and asked me if I am interested in participating the interview and they said they'd send me more details if I can participate the interview which I said yes. The funny thing is that they responded back (a week later since I replied) to me the day there was an interview saying their interview moved to next day and asked me again if I can participate. Of course I said no.

    It was most unprofessional and irresponsible interview process that I've ever experienced.

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OppenheimerFunds.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter to gauge my interest in a position. My first round interview was with the HR rep, who asked basic questions like "walk me through your resume", "why this role", and "why this company". this initial interview only lasted about 15 minutes and was pretty simple. I then made it through to a second round with the hiring manager. This interview was much more complex and largely focused on my previous experience and skills. There was little in the way of behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing was that difficult or out of the ordinary. Know about the company and why you want to work in the industry and the group with which you're interviewing.   Answer Question
