Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pershing (Jersey City, NJ) in June 2015.

Interview

Meet with HR contact for initial interview. Manager of potential department sits with you next and asks the basic background questions. Then other online managers within the group come in to ask you some more specific questions about prior experience and skill set. Very informal and relaxed atmosphere

    Negotiation

    No negotiation but they gave me the salary I asked for. The bonus target, however, turned out to be not the percentage promised. They are always in cost-cutting mode.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Pershing (Jersey City, NJ) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I met with three or four people - the hiring manager, his boss, and an HR person. I didn't meet with any of colleagues. As an aside, I interviewed and was hired for one role and within 3 months, I was told I was going to be moved into a completely different position, for which I was not interested, nor qualified. However, since I was the newest hire, I had no choice in the matter. It was the deepest part of the recession, so I couldn't quit, but the role was the dog that no one wanted and it took me almost six months to convince my boss to convince his boss that my skills were better utilized in the role for which I was hired. I was moved back to my original job about two months later - and he held the fact that he "went to bat" for me (to get me back to the job for which I'd been hired) until he quit. Having him stand up for me in the first place would've been the right thing to do, but good luck there. I have spoken with others who have had similar "bait, accept, and switch" experiences. Management doesn't really seem to care if you're qualified, a pulse will be sufficient.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to plot out an approach to managing a product in an application that I'd never seen and didn't have any experience in using. I was given 45 minutes or so and was expected to supply an approach to improving functionality, furnishing metadata, and designing a tool to manage the entire process. To this day, I still wonder about how much the people interviewing me actually knew about the role for which I was applying. In the end, the questions I was asked were pretty pedestrian otherwise.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pershing in March 2010.

    Interview

    Trip to headquarters in Jersey City for all day of interviews. I was interviewed by the hiring manager, all his direct reports and his peers. In total I had 7 interviews in 1 day. It was a long day as I flew in the morning, had interviews, and then went back to the airport same day. The interviews were minimum of 45 minutes each. Not on the schedule, but at the end had another meeting with the hiring manager.
