Please describe the interview / hiring process.
I applied online and within a week I got an email from the recruiter to complete a HireVue (Digital Recording) interview. After about 3 days of completing it, I got another email to schedule a screening with that recruiter. At the end, I was told my resume, application, and digital recording was going to be submitted to the hiring manager after I submitted my transcripts which I submitted that second. In 3 days I got an email to schedule an interview with the hiring manager. The invitation indicated I was supposed to call the hiring manager at the agreed time. She did not answer but emailed me saying she was running behind and to call 15 min later. I called again, and that's when the conversation got awkward. I've had so many interviews and have gotten a lot better but by far, this one did not go well since there were misunderstandings throughout. She also had me on speaker, so It was awkward hearing my own voice while speaking. She seemed confused about my resume and was straight picking at random parts of it and never asked to go over my resume nor talk about myself so she never understood my story. She thought I told her I lived up SF, when I never did so I had to clarify. She also wanted me to give her another answer to her "thinking out of the box" question because my answer involved a quantitative aspect. Make sure you know how the rotational program works because the recruiter told me you rotate within PM work, credit analysis, and RM type of work, but no, you just rotate industries. This obviously made me look bad when asked "why this program". She asked me other questions which I did well, however, all of the miscommunication was obviously a deal breaker, especially when they seek candidates that fit the culture and are well spoken, even candidates without a finance background. No technical questions by the way. That phone interview lasted about 25/30 minutes and by the end of it, I just knew I was not going to make it their in-person super day thingy.
