    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at R.V. Kuhns (Portland, OR) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Three interviews overall. The first was a phone interview one-on-one with the head of the PMA department. The second was a phone interview with the head of the PMA and PMA team leads (however the head of PMA was unavailable). The final interview was in the office with the team leads, head of PMA and the head of HR. All three interviews were fairly standard. The first phone interview was just getting to know you, resume-based questions. The second phone interview was also resume-based questions and also were questions about what was happening in the market, general investment knowledge, etc. The in-person interview was again resume-based questions, more in depth market-based questions, and then situational questions about handling clients, working on team projects, etc. The in-person was followed by an Excel test, investments short-answer quiz and a personality test. Excel quiz was fairly easy if you know basic formulas, sort function, VLOOKUP, etc. The investments quiz was simple if you are a finance major or have previous investment experience, but I could see it being hard for someone without the background. Questions included what is benchmark, what is good benchmark for small-cap equity fund, list as many asset classes as possible, what is sharpe ratio.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at R.V. Kuhns.

    Interview

    PMA manager, HR manager, and the four team leads in the PMA department will sit in during the interview. It may seem a little overwhelming at first but they all contribute to the interview and it does not seem like you're being put in the spotlight. The PMA manager is very skilled at interviewing so just try and be yourself and be truthful in your responses.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at R.V. Kuhns (Portland, OR) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Three Interviews. 1st interivew was with the performance analytics manager, which you go through resume and ask about past experiences. 2nd interview was in person with performance manager as well as the team leads. The team leads mostly sat quiet with the performance analytics manager asking the bulk of the questions. They called me back immediately and requested for a third in-person interview that included a "skills" test. This was basic excel questions (for the most part) and asked about some financial statistics questions. There was one open ended question that asks, how would you allocate a million dollars.

    No negotiation. The pay is significantly below industry average.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at R.V. Kuhns.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume, C/V and some work samples online. I forgot about it then 2 months later one of their Managers emailed me to set up an interview. I had one 45 minute phone interview that was one on one, and one in person interview that was a panel of three.

    The phone interview was pleasant and the manager was very nice. However, in the second interview, she asked me pretty much identical questions as the first interview. I tried to make it more conversational but she insisted on making it an awkward Q&A session. The two other people in the interview were very friendly and asked decent questions.
