    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at The Siegfried Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    My interview process consisted of three steps: HR phone screen, Director level phone screen, and in-person interview. Both phone calls consisted of the usual early interview questions about resume experience, interest in the company, and what kind of role/company you're looking for. The in-person interview is a heavily scripted three hour block sometimes with multiple interviewers. There is a strong focus on polish of applicants and ability to field more difficult what-if and behavior-based questions. Personally, I found the final round up tight compared to the initial phone conversations as well as every other in-person interview I've had even with Fortune 50 companies. I found it ridiculous that the last in-person conversation had one question about interests outside of work as we slogged through a 25 question standardized list. A while after, Siegfried recruiting sent an Amex gift card as a means of spreading the brand which made the marathon interview worthwhile.

    The interview process begins with a phone screen. If there seems to be a good fit from there an in person interview will be scheduled.

    Interview

    This hiring process is extremely efficient. They give you the opportunity to speak to several individuals. I interviewed with 3 different people for approximately 45 mins each. The interview was more like a conversation and also heavily involved information about the firm.

    Interview was pretty standard. A lot of behavioral based style questions about working style and working with teams. Met with a total of four different people, so it was a pretty long interview.

    Interview

    People were great and the interview was not bad at all, mostly just getting to know each other instead of difficult questions. I worked through a recruiter, had a phone interview and then an in person interview where I met with three people.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The Siegfried Group (New York, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process was relatively straightforward with an emphasis on personality and fit over technical aspects. I met with 3 members of management and 1 peer. Everyone I met was positive and polished. I was uncertain on taking the position once it was offered to me so they invited me to dinner with a member of executive leadership which was a great opportunity to learn more about the business.
