    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wedbush Securities (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online after finding the posting on Linkedin. I received a call within days and had a quick phone interview with HR. They emailed me soon after to set up an in-person panel interview followed by a logic test. The logic test was more like word problems. The panel described the job responsibilites, and then asked me about my background.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR through email after I applied online. I spoke to hr twice before I was asked to do an in person interview at their Los Angeles office. During the in person interview, you have to take a brief test. After the test, you do another interview with hr regarding the yourself, previous work experience, situational, and behavioral questions. Then you'll have an interview with an associate and a manager in which they go over the job responsibilities, what expected, and answer questions regarding your fit in the company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wedbush Securities (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process started with a phone call from HR/Recruiter. Had a short chat about what I was looking for in a role, why I applied with Wedbush, and what I liked most about my current/past roles. Once invited for a 1:1 interview, they have you take a short math test, to gauge your math competency (you will be provided a calculator). Test was timed, I believe 25 mins. After that 1:1 interview with recruiter. From there, was taken to a 1:2 interview with Dept Manager and Co. Total interview time, on the day of was approx 1.5 hours. Time from Application to Hire, approx. 1 month.
