    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!

    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.

    Interview process was very standard for entry level. They asked basic questions any sales job would. Why do you want to be in sales? Are you comfortable cold calling? Do you have any financial background?

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Zacks Investment Research (Chicago, IL) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I was excited about the role and the people I spoke to but was disappointed about their Non Compete Agreement which I only became aware of when given the contract to review. The NCA prohibited working at another firm in a sales role for 1 year after working at Zacks. For the pay-level and investment on their end I was shocked by this restriction.

    Had a brief phone call followed by a visit to the office for another position. It took quite a while to hear back but was then interviewed for another role. The interviewers were kind and it was relaxed. Before any of this, they asked me to fill out a questionnaire determining sales aptitude and personality.

    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.
