Please describe the interview / hiring process.
It started off with numerous phone interviews with a few members of the team covering different but related areas of the team (they covered different aspects but the position was working with each so they all needed to speak). The first was a general discussion about my history and track record and a view of my insights into the firm, what and how I would help the group etc... Then since he liked me I had another call with a higher up manager to discuss similar aspects. The third started off with a case study that involved answer a few questions provided and based on a set of various data points provided to analyze (It was given to me and had to be completed over night with a follow up discussion on it the next morning). I believe I completed it successfully and they liked my view and thoughts but doing it over night and fitting it in during my hectic work schedule was the hard part. I didn't end up Getting this position maybe because it was shooting for a position at a solid higher level up and would need to relocate but it was helpful overall and I eventually got a position with a big move up at another and better firm.
