    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Schroders (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied to Schroders at the beginning of 2016 and got the only reply from their HR Department 9 month! later. Informing me that they regret to advise that I was not shortlisted. I am glad for that because I just started a new job at another company. However I question how the HR department of this company is "working" if they inform candidates after 9 month! This is ridiculous.

    Investment Operations Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schroders (London, England (UK)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Very, very strenuous application process which took around three months to complete. From applications forms to online testing to online interviews to delayed responses for invitations to face to face interview and assessment day. Assessment day had a typical group study (formal board room meeting in main conference room with around 14 assessors) and a face-to-face interview and a work-specific test which required the prioritisation of activities.
    As soon as entering the firm, very, very hostile environment. which i don't believe allowed me to perform at my best

    Average Interview

    Interview

    They called me on Skype. The interview was easy, they asked for my academic backgroud and they asked for my strength and weakness, the classic questions. The person who handled my application for apprenticeship was very unprofessional. She has wronged my name several times. I had to write to them to have a response about my interview. She said me that she had send me an email, but I haven't receive nothing. I waited for two weeks for nothing in axiety, checking my email constantly. Bad organization. Is not the right way to relate with people.
