    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Sterne Agee and Leach (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It went pretty smooth. Pretty simple I should say, first interviewed on call and then on site. They explained me about their work and I shared my project on CDS, and there were some basic questions about the bloomberg terminal like retrieving CDX data etc. Overall environment seemed pretty chilled out and seemed like good place to work.

    Client Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Sterne Agee and Leach (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Asked about multi tasking, and priority management. Primarily looking for a personality fit with the FA's. Overall, low stress & easy going...although that was just the hiring managers general attitude. I think in a job like this the personality is huge, so that is what they are looking for. And also someone who is interested in learning and contributing to the small office environment.
