    PHP Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zacks Investment Research (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    First I was given coding tests which takes at least a day to finish! Then went onsite for 1 hour interview, which was very easy. Later the recruiter called me and said the team wanted me to work onsite free for 3 days to finish two tasks as a process for further interview!!!!!! Stay away from the PHP team of Zack's! This is ridiculous! It wasted me hours to do the coding test!

    Interview

    nterview process took roughly 2-3 weeks. The actual interview was conversational. General interview questions about background and aptitude. I received an offer within three weeks of applying.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Zacks Investment Research (Chicago, IL) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by phone/email. The process was a combination of phone calls and email follow-ups and then an in-person interview. I found the process fresh and exciting - i.e., the experience felt less than traditional interview and hiring experiences I've had. I really enjoyed it!

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Intense. A lot of back and forth. In the end, I held firm to my beliefs and my 3rd(?) counter offer was accepted.

    Customer Support Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zacks Investment Research (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Very laid back, only interviewed by two people. Everyone is really nice and if you just read up on the website beforehand and have a good idea of the Zacks Rank process, you'll be fine. Showing an interest in the stock market and having potential for going into sales seems to be most important.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zacks Investment Research (Chicago, IL) in May 2010.

    Interview

    They call you after reviewing your resume. You go in for an interview and you usually wait for a month to hear a response. It may take longer because they seem to procrastinate with those kinds of things

    I can't answer that question because I haven't been in that situation to ask.

    Research Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Zacks Investment Research (Fresno, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Nothing very special and tricky. Human Resource introduction, then 1:1 with the manager about technical problem. Last is lunch with the coho and manager. I would consider that the lunch is also a type of informal interview. Be careful your eating portion and eating speed.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zacks Investment Research (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very laid back; was expecting a large company type interview process. The manager that interviewed me was one of the best managers I've ever had. A lot of people say no to this company but a lot of people are also denied. I think I was selected strictly because I seemed super interested in the company at the time because I really needed a job. My advice is to just read up on the company and tell them exactly what they want to hear: you love sales, you are competitive and you will show up every day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Zacks Investment Research in July 2014.

    Interview

    After two initial phone interviews, I was given a written assignment and an Excel assignment to do at home. Both were relatively simple and representative of the work the position would entail, but were nevertheless time-consuming. After I satisfactorily completed the assignments, I was invited for a final in-person interview, during which I was asked the same questions as in the phone interviews and then had to walk through the two assignments out loud. I was told I did so perfectly, and that the interviewers loved my personality and demeanor and wish they could hire me on the spot. After trying to reach out afterwards, I never ended up being informed of any decision.
