    Senior Solutions Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at T. Rowe Price (Baltimore, MD) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a corporate recruiter on LinkedIn. I had a phone interview with the recruiter and was questioned on my experience level and projects that I worked on as well as compensation offered at my current company. The following day, I had a 30 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. Two weeks later, I was scheduled for a 3 hour interview. The interview was organized in 30 minute segments and I met and interviewed with 5 members of the development team. I met with the ScrumMaster, Product Owner, 2 developers, a data architect, and lastly the recruiter. The interviews were conducted in a friendly and personable fashion, which reflected the company culture. Most of the interviews were based off of what was in my resume, past experiences, behavior questions and a few technical questions. Be prepared to demonstrate your programming skills on the white board and to write a SQL query.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at T. Rowe Price (Tampa, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I met with two individuals who ran through a series of questions - it was more impersonal and seemed like a by the book HR interview rather than a conversation with someone regarding the position. Following the questions we went through a role play scenario that had more to do with how I handled a situation and gathered information from a client rather than having to do with the prospective job itself.

    Financial Services Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at T. Rowe Price (Colorado Springs, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    This was probably the most unprofessional interviews I have had by a large corporation. I was scheduled for a phone interview at 11:30. At 11:29, my interviewee emailed and asked if we could bump it, she was running late. We scheduled for 1:30, and I finally received the call at 1:42. During the call I learned that she didn't even work for T. Rowe, which is another red flag.

    Afterwards, she emailed and asked if I could come in for an in person interview. I said yes and she said she'd email the official info later. I got that official email at 8:00 the night before the interview with a online test and application to fill out.

    At the in person interview, I asked the two interviewees what sets T. Rowe products apart to a customer vs the competition and they couldn't give me a good answer. He said, "we don't do like EFTs or anything." Apparently he didn't know they are called ETFs.

    Overall I got the impression that you were their to answer the phones for customers and that's it.
    There would probably be very little true financial work. I've heard that T. Rowe is the 1-2 year stepping stone to the better financial institutions and I could believe it after this process. I probably did not get it because I do not have much customer service experience.

    • Every question was how you've dealt with a customer in the face to face interview. No other questions really.   1 Answer

    The interview is easy. Situational questions so be prepared with stories. They want to get people in, so they try to help along the way. You will be there with a group of people, but the interview itself is you with usually 2 people from the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at T. Rowe Price (Owings Mills, MD) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Very behavioral oriented. Interested in previous work experience, especially if it is related to anything in finance or technology. Basic algorithm questions. Asked which programming languages and if I had any knowledge with databases. Overall, very flexible and simple. Big plus if you have experience or knowledge working with SQL. Ultimately, it was more behavioral oriented with a few technical questions (see interview questions).
