    Client Service Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schroders (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview consisted of two 30 minute interviews with differing teams. Was not instructed that there would be two interviews beforehand and with a team that I was not aware was available. This made the interview process very intense! A huge negative that I found from Schroders is that if you don't get the position, they won't reach out to let you know if you are successful or not. This is highly frustrating when you give your time to interview and hear nothing in return!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Schroders (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter who was really helpful initially. Was contacted for an interview - whole process took about a week. Interviewers seemed nice but weren't very engaging which made me feel uncomfortable and nervous. I was told I would receive feedback the next day, I chased up the recruiter and eventually got an answer 2 weeks later.

    Client Executive Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Schroders (London, England (UK)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online, contacted by HR to schedule an interview 4 weeks later. Face to face with 4 people in 2 interviews. First 2 people it went well however the 2nd interview with the other 2 didn’t go well as they felt they knew more about an industry they had no experience in compared to someone who has actually worked in it for over 4 years. Absolutely incredible with some of the skeptical comments being made even when full explanations were provided. Interview ended on a sour note due to these indirect insults. It’s a shame as the office is amazing as were the 2 individuals who interviewed me before them. Be wary as with a lot of wealth firms based in UK, these jobs are normally reserved for people from certain backgrounds.
