    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for the Options Rotational Program after a career fair day at my university.

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.

About one week later I was asked to complete a series of personality tests and critical thinking tests. Two weeks later I was invited to Super Day at Raymond James Headquarters in St. Petersburg.

    Financial Planner Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL).

    Interview

    The process can be frustrating because outside recruiters that do not work in house are used. It will take awhile before you get an interview. First, a recruiter that knows nothing about the job and reads from a script calls. Then you will be called in for an interview. If you make it past the 2nd interview, personality tests etc are done. The tests all seem redundant. If they like you after this an offer is made.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic questions about experience initially. Once you meet with a manager, a more in depth, job specific interview is done. Again, the basic questions are asked and if you are experienced, you shouldn't have a problem. The culture is very good and most managers are really nice.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You can negotiate for higher salary and more vacation if you have experience. If you do not have experience, you are put at the standard rate & vacation weeks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Saint Petersburg, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    First, I had a video interview. Second, I had to take a personality test (Jager). Then, I had a phone interview with HR. Then, assessment testing and 4 in-person interviews with marketing department all in the same day. The first test was difficult especially first thing in the morning. The second test was easier. Some interviews were tougher than others. I really got a sense of teamwork and camaraderie. It was hard to get a gauge on if they liked my answers or not but I guess not since I didn't get the job. HR was very responsive to all of my emails.

    Technology Service Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Raymond James Financial (Pinellas Park, FL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I believe they mostly recruit using agencies for this position. Most of the people I know that work at the TSR started from a recruiting agency.

    I was contacted by a recruiting agency about an opportunity at Raymond James, however, they only had 1 opening despite having a mass hiring a couple weeks prior.

    I had a screen interview and then an in-person interview with both managers of the IT dept.

    It was a very formal interview with typical HR and a handful of help desk questions. I felt like despite that I did well in the interview, they tend to recruit a certain 'look' that fits in with the company culture.

    Not sure if this was my case or if I was competing against some good candidates.
