    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Cambridge Associates, LLC in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round interview - I answered questions as prompted, however I feel that what made my application weak was lack of a strong financial background and the fact that my call dropped three times mid-interview. Make sure you have good cell service!

    Interviewer was very friendly.

    Operations Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Single on-campus interview, with single interviewer (manager). The interviewer came across as intentionally abrasive. There were no case studies or technical questions, just general background and interest questions. The interviewer could not readily explain the position for which they were interviewing candidates. Follow-ups to the interview were sophomoric and opaque.
