    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at St. James's Place Wealth Management in March 2016.

    Interview

    1 round over the phone. They rescheduled on me a few times. More of an informational interview, did not seem too interested in learning more about me or my qualifications. I think that it was because the intern is mostly learn on the job, so anyone can do it as long as they are willing to learn.

    Paraplanner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at St. James's Place Wealth Management (London, England) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for a paraplanner role advertised on linkedin. I was invited to an interview almost straight away by an in-house consultant. In trying to get further information about the role from this consultant, I was then advised that no paraplanner roles were available. I was told that a number of roles were available and that these would be discussed in a telephone interview. Personally I prefer to know what job I'm being interviewed for prior to the interview.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at St. James's Place Wealth Management.

    Interview

    Asked all regular interview questions.

    Why this company, what do you want from this role, previous experience, why this industry etc etc

    Interviewer was nice and didn't try and catch me out, felt like they just wanted to get to know me and find out why I wanted the role.

    Phone interview was more challenging as asked questions specific to the industry so needed knowledge of the industry.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at St. James's Place Wealth Management (London, England) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was very basic. Spoke to the Partner on the phone to arrange a time to come into the office and have a meeting. During the meeting he asked me to walk through the CV and explain everything. Afterwards, he asked me some competencies with reference to experience I've gained previously. Next, he asked about questions future aspirations and where I saw myself in the next 5 years. Finally we discussed what I was looking for and what he could offer me. All in all, a good experience.
