Difficult Interview

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Vanguard.

Interview

An hour phone call, consisted of a resume rundown, behavioral questions, followed by information about the program. The recruiter whom I spoke with was nice on the phone, and the overall phone call seemed a very conventional process.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Vanguard (Malvern, PA).

    Interview

    Very smooth and pleasant process overall. Had a first round phone screening then was invited to their headquarters in PA for a full day, final interview. The day consisted of two back to back interviews, one hour each, a group activity that you can prepare for in advance, and different events throughout the day to introduce you to Vanguard. Questions are all behavioral. People are nice and welcoming, and it was a pleasant day. I heard back within two weeks.

    Conversational, behavioral interview. Phone-screen process went smoothly, if you know your basic answers to behavioral questions about leadership and group experiences, you'll be fine. The whole thing took about an hour.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Vanguard (Scottsdale, AZ).

    Interview

    Full day getting to know what Vanguard is all about. Two back to back one hour interviews with great personable interviewers (didn't really feel like an interview). They were genuine and it felt much more like a conversation. Make sure you are prepared for Star questions and do your research about Vanguard. Discussion and problem solving activities throughout the day, not too hard though. Be a leader and exemplify communication.
