    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Vanguard (Malvern, PA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Vanguard reps came to my college career fair. Luckily senior IT managers were there filling in interview slots. I had my first round interview 2 weeks after the fair. It was an easy one on one behavioral interview asking similar questions. I got a call 2 days later to come to HQ in a week for final round interview. It was a full day consisting of company presentation by the CTO, 2 one on one interviews and a group problem solving exercise. The one on ones were again behavioral but focused more on my past experiences and how I can adapt to certain difficult situations. They also went through my technical skills I listed on my resume. Alot of questions were emphasized on teamwork skills. Vanguard follows STAR format. Both interviewers had the same set of questions given to them by HR. The group exercise was mainly to choose as a group top items essential to take on a trip to a desert. The whole interview process went smoothly. All my interviewers were very warm, friendly and spoke endlessly about their positive experiences with Vanguard. I got an offer 5 days later.

    I was contacted via phone from a HR recruiter from this company and spoke with her on the phone. We did an initial behavioral interview via phone as well as some general information about the company. I was invited to interview on site. I was interviewed by two people on site where each interview lasted an hour. They were mostly questions asking about my interests, my background, and behavioral questions. The interview process was very friendly and comfortable.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vanguard (Malvern, PA) in August 2009.

    Interview

    The interview was simply a one on one interview with a member of their Information Technology Staff. A number of situational based questions were asked, in addition to where I saw my career heading. The interview was not too arduous, and seemed more like a pleasant conversation than an interview.
