Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Merrill Lynch

Interview

It was just two behavioral questions and resume explanation. The interviewer called me late which I always find unprofessional and lacking respect. There were limited options to schedule the interview - all on the same day just different times, and the day that they offered for interviews was the next day, so pretty inconvenient for someone who is already in the workforce.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me how you would handle a situation in which an advisor gave you pushback.
