    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Waddell & Reed.

    Interview

    Not much of an interview process, really. Seems like they are initially interested in anyone. Of course, background and compliance are important to all the companies in this area. But I didn't get the idea they are very discerning.
