    AML Compliance Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview a few days after I applied. Within a few more days I was contacted for an in person interview with the hiring manager. The interview went great. Mainly behavioral questions and it felt more like a friendly discussion about the position and the firm. I thought the interview went well and was hopeful. I sent my thank you letter the same day; no response. I sent a follow up; no response. Radio silence for almost a month. Then I get a generic email informing me they had moved on with another candidate. It was a great interview experience but I was very disappointed at the lack of communication and the very impersonal rejection after an in person interview. I’ve had cold feet about the company since this experience.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter preliminary phone interview followed by hiring manager phone interview then followed by hiring manager web interview, they spend a lot of time between each step and offer limited communication along the way. It's difficult to determine whether my experience is typical within the organization or more specific to the hiring manager of this group, but I found the communication to be contradicting during this process and it wasn't a great reflection of what it may be like to work for this person later.

    Interview Questions

    • The question and interview style was very interactive and positive. Questions you would expect to receive and that would encourage a good exchange. I was asked about my short and long term career goals. We discussed work environment. Went through my background, etc.   Answer Question

We had a phone interview for 40 minutes where they asked me questions and I asked them multiple questions afterwards. I asked to follow up and met with them a week later.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The first interview was so unorganized, they told me thatI would be interviewed by two people but one was put on vacation. So three weeks later I had to reinterview with someone else who already knew who they were going to hire so I wasted my time going back the second time. Very hard to get a job here. They don't look at your applications. They just claim to get back to you in 14 days which becomes 40 days only to deny you and your skills, and education are in line with what the job is asking as far as requirements.
