    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial.

    Interview

    First screening interview, then in-person meeting with multiple team members. Everyone was very nice and easy going. Work place environment seemed a bit slow but likely a good fit for those that preferred a laid back pace.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a request for a phone interview in a couple of days. The initial call with the recruiter was great. He was amiable and we had a good conversation and dialogue back and forth. His questions were fair and straight forward. At the conclusion of our call he said they would get back to me in a few days. A couple of days later I received a request to speak with the hiring manager which I was obviously open to. This conversation was an entirely different experience. The manager was almost 10 minutes late in calling me and then tried to say I did not answer my phone. Funny that he did not leave any messages and I did not have any missed calls. It was not an interview it was an interrogation. He went line by line through my resume and had all kinds of tacky questions. Most of his questions were not revenant. For example I have been with the same company for 15 years and started right out of college. He wanted to know if I applied for said position 15 years ago or was recruited. They guy was very unpleasant. I figured if he was like to a prospective employee I could only imagine what he would be like to work for. After our call I pondered the integration for a day and then decided to tell the recruiter I was no longer interested in talking about this particular position any further.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview that lasted about 15-20 minutes. I was well prepared and qualified, thought he interview went well, and sent a follow up email that was well received. Two weeks later I got a stock email saying they were moving forward with other candidates. It was frustrating to have multiple direct contacts with the interviewer and then a very delayed, generic rejection from an unmonitored email account.

The second step was a super day interview that took place in St. Pete that consisted of 30 candidates that each had 3 panel interviews with 3 different hiring managers. Interview had a lot to do with behavioral, and resume related questions.
