    Portfolio Management Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at U.S. Trust (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interview is pretty laid back. Mostly just want to know about your financial experience and any previous jobs you may have had. You start with a phone interview and from there they set up a office interview.

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Trust.

    Interview

    First, I received a phone call from HR. The gentleman was very nice and basically asked screening questions about my resume. Then, I received a second call from someone else in HR that pretty much set up the interview. After the phone call, I received an email with all of the details of the interview. The interview itself was ok. It was a panel of 3 employees. They are all very nice and very friendly. After some follow-up, I received an email that stated they would prefer someone that had more experience with trusts, as I did not. Interview was about 45 minutes long.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked about career goals and where do you see yourself in 5 years types of questions. They already had some questions written down before the interview began. They really asked a lot of questions about my resume and how certain things I did could relate to the position.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at U.S. Trust (Atlanta, GA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter a few days after submitting an application online. The recruiter asked some basic questions about my experience, and told me about the position. He let me know that he would try to set an interview up for me. I received a call the next day from another recruiter to set up an interview for later that week. Later, I met with two interviewers. They mostly asked about my experience, and how I might handle different situations. The questions were fairly easy and the interview was more about explaining what the job entailed and what the company culture was like. It was a very relaxed interview and I felt very comfortable.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Trust (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It starts with a 20-30 minute phone screen. Other locations may do it differently. Once the phone screen is completed you are invited for a interview in the office if they chose you as a potential candidate. You arrive at the facility. Somebody greets you at the door and you are placed in a conference room. Then you are interviewed in front of a panel. They ask several questions specific to the position. They also ask you about your background and why you are interested in the position. After the interview they will tell that they will be in touch. It took 1 month for me to get the call that I got the position.
