    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at TIAA (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very simple, one interview with the senior manager who I would be working under. This was for a winter internship, also got to meet some of the people who I would later be working with. The majority of the interview was about the position itself, answering any questions I had about the position as well as talking about a broad scope of the assignments I would be working on and how they would progress over time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TIAA.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with HR more based on salary questions. Second interview with two Directors which I thought went very well. It was a phone interview. Standard interview questions. Received confirmation from HR afterwards to confirm that I would be ok to move forward with salary, so it seemed like I was a likely candidate to be chosen. Third phone interview was with more direct leads and was phone interview as well. The questions were a lot tougher and I was almost drilled. I followed up afterwards with HR, but received zero response from both of them. Never even received a rejection email. After going through all three rounds, I thought they wasted my time and strung me along. Wouldn't recommend this company due to communication and leadership style.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard behavioral questions. What is your strengths. If you could be a superhero what would it be.   Answer Question

    Wealth Management Advisor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at TIAA in December 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted application online. Contacted by recruiter in a week who scheduled an interview with hiring manager. Interview took place in hiring manager's office. This was disappointing since the professional thing to do is meet in a mutually beneficial conference room etc. The interview is very impersonal with several behavioral questions. Asked about minimum investible assets to be considered Wealth. Manager was wishy washy and said it depends on complexity. Another disappointing item. Asked about corporate credit card to build relationships with clients and again wishy washy. Met with another manager immediately after. I got more information from them since it was more getting to know each other. This is not a traditional Wealth Management firm or position. It's a sales position to convert customers to Wealth clients. I hear pay is good and seems like a good company.

    two managers interviewed in person and took copious notes - somewhat relaxed but if you are vague then they will follow up requesting specific examples - have them ready is my only suggestion
