    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at U.S. Trust (Portland, OR) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed over the phone for an internal job move, never met in person until I arrived, which is pretty neat that it was even an option. It was move halfway across country, but it felt very comfortable and a good fit for both of us.

    Investment Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Trust (Atlanta, GA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I got a call from a recruiter who gave me an outline of the position and asked if I was interested. He had me apply online and then submit information for a background check. After that he scheduled an in person interview. Went into the office and met with the regional manager, 2 senior PM’s, and an investment associate. Regional manager just gave me an overview of the firm and the business model. Investment associate asked me a lot of questions about my work now. Both PM’s asked me about the CFA, my current work, and some questions about why I wanted to move.

    I PM got pretty in depth about the different duration calculations and embedded call options. He also asked me about Monte Carlo vs Straight line analysis. I asked him if he had any concerns and his only response was that I may get bored with all the compliance requirements.

    Over all the interviewers were very nice and made me feel comfortable. They all seemed competent and smarter than wirehouse brokers however they didn’t seem as polished from a social and presentation standpoint (exempting the regional manager).

    2 weeks later I got an email saying they went with an internal candidate.

    Interview

    The interview process is rigged. They know who they will hire before the position is posted to the public or even internally. Then proceed with a farce interview process for unknowing candidates to fulfill legal requirements.

    Interview

    Applied through a staffing firm. I was granted an interview about a week or so after I applied. My interviewed via telecoference as a couple of my future teammates were located in other cities. I was asked pretty standard interview questions:

    Tell me about your experience.
    Are you familiar with our firm?
    Describe how you handle difficult situations
    Etc.

    Interview was a breeze and I was hired shortly thereafter.

    Negotiation

    Unfair. Well, at least to me. They knew I lacked leverage having been working as a consultant prior. Company took advantage of a weak job market.
