Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PIMCO (Newport Beach, CA) in March 2016.

Interview

The first interview was a phone interview with a marketing manager, second round was a in-person interview at their headquarter with 4 people (3 associates and another manager) back to back. I was also asked to complete a PowerPoint and Excel test. As I was referred by a staffing agency, I did a couple calls and one phone interview with them before interviewing with PIMCO. Most interview questions were behavioral.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PIMCO in April 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online for a position in California when I lived in another state. Went through a couple phone interviewes and a video conference. The last interview was over lunch. It was casual setting each time with behavioral and technical questions. The HR coordinate was not very pleasant to work with. I went through 4 rounds of interviews and took a test. The test had a mixture of questions relating to the stock market, bonds, and then an excel functional test. I had to show my knowledge of formulas and graphs.
