    Technology Integrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owings Mills, MD (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owings Mills, MD (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at T. Rowe Price in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found an interesting post on the company website - it was close to what I was looking for but not quite. The recruiter called me, we had a nice conversation and she asked if I had seen a different position that would better suited to may talents. She was, indeed, correct. I interviewed with her for over 30 minutes on the phone and then she set up 2 more phone interviews with the hiring manager and department manger. That went very well and I was asked to go to Baltimore for a day of interviews with several people. he day went really well because I was able to not only answer their questions in detail due to my expertise but because they were quite happy to answer mine and walk me through what working at T Rowe is like. They never sugar coated anything. I also knew the salaries where not the best in the industry but that benefits and retirement plans were surpassed by none. They were also VERY excited to have a candidate who wanted to move t Baltimore (a great city, IMHO).
    Over all, it was great day.

    Interview Questions
    • Technical questions focused on HR systems, my experience implementing them and challenges I inevitably met along the way. How did you handle the system owner who has sure they did not need to change?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Some negotiation but very little on salary. They are known for this. However, the benefits and moving expenses are fantastic. If they want you, they will get you where you need to be without you doing all the work. Very supportive and give constant guidance.

    The retirement benefits are superb, but I would expect that from a company in the business of retirement.

    One more nice bit - I was not the oldest person in the room. That has not happened for a LONG time.

    Contact with placement agency which lead to a first interview. The interviewer was prompt and formal, meeting me at the door and walking me in personally.

Very detailed in which the position was for and very informative as expectations was instead of being a representative that was from HR and not familiar with the position itself. Interviewer was impressed and will be contacting with details for a second interview and requirements for further consideration.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at T. Rowe Price.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume through campus recruiting. The interview was pretty standard; nothing out of expectations. Two female associates interviewed me and wrote down my answers. I guess they were not the ones to decide if I were hired or not. The interview was pretty laid back and lasted for half an hour. They called back about 2 weeks later.

    Investment Operations Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owings Mills, MD (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at T. Rowe Price in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first came in contact at a career fair at the university in currently attending. I applied through my university's career development program (sending a resume, cover letter, and unofficial transcript), and got a call back for an interview.

    A interviewer came on campus, and I interviewed for about 45 minutes. I honestly thought I did poorly in it though (just a mulligan of an interview). They said I would hear back in about 2 weeks for a second interview if I was selected but I didn't hear back, I figured I didn't get selected for the second round.

    Two months later, I received an email from their HR department asking me to fill out a more thorough interview to "complete your interview process." I thought that was weird because I hadn't heard from them in two months, but I did so. Two days later, I received a phone call with an offer.

    Investment Operations Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Owings Mills, MD (US)
    Application Details

    interviewed at T. Rowe Price in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I sent a resume to a friend who worked for the company, who passed it along to the head recruiter. About a month later I got a call to interview. I went to their office for an interview with a manager that lasted close to an hour. All the questions were behavioral based- very generic ones. Since I was one of the first people they interviewed, it took a little over two months for them to get back to me.
