    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TIAA (Denver, CO (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    There was a video interview where you would be asked certain company and job related questions. Followed by a series of questions to test certain cognitive functions. Also what seemed like an aptitude test. I would recommend for anyone to take an hour or two to finish the whole process.

    Wealth Management Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Hiring manager spoke mostly about who they were and not who I am or what I am trying to accomplish in my career. Description is very different from what website says. Not attractive as it looks on paper. Hiring is a two way street, there should be a healthy conversation and not a lecture during the interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TIAA.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with a recruiter regarding the position I had applied for. I found the recruiter to be very pushy and unpleasant. Straight off, he said he could tell I was nervous (aren't most people?) and demanded I stop being nervous. He grilled me on job duties I had done more than a decade ago (that had nothing to do with the job I was interviewing for) and when I couldn't give specific examples on situations as I couldn't remember back that far, he got very irritated. He said the hiring manager would be even more demanding than he was, so I better spend time trying to remember every task I had done for every job I had ever had and be prepared to give very long and specific examples for each task. He said I was very poor at doing phone interviews and basically implied that it's a good thing I had him as my savior to help "coach" me on how to interview. Interesting, since I've gotten plenty of jobs with my style of interviewing and most people would probably be put off by any recruiter who acted like him.

    The recruiter emailed me about a week later stating the hiring manager wanted to meet and the recruiter wanted to have a call with me before that to make sure I was prepared to interview his way. No thanks. I declined both the call and in-person interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at TIAA in October 2016.

    Interview

    Walked in and was told interviewers would be late(this is already 5 minutes after my scheduled time), so I spoke with 2 alumni briefly about their experience. 10 minutes later I am being escorted into the interview room.
    Interview felt more like a resume review than an interview. Both interviewers(both technical and non technical) took turns looking at my interview and asking behavioral questions. No technical questions were asked throughout the process. After going over the resume, we briefly spoke about the company but before we could talk about the internship, I was rushed out due to running out of time. Overall, between the lack of interview feeling and being rushed, this left a bad taste with me.
