    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at First New York Securities LLC (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The process wasn't too time consuming. I submitted an online application. Through networking, I secured an interview. If I hadn't done that, who knows how long it would have taken to get an interview. The interviewer was courteous and didn't try to kill me with tough questions. It was a cordial interaction and was roughly one hour.
