    Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vanguard in August 2018.

    Interview

    Easy interview process. 1st a phone interview/screening, then an in-person interview with the hiring manager. In some cases, it would have been helpful to have met with the person to whom I'd be reporting, but it was a non-issue in this case.

    Honestly they ask you just questions around the STAR format. Does not matter what position you apply for, all the questions are the same. They usually will have you do some role playing.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Vanguard (Valley Forge, PA (US)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    There are multiple interviews. My interview had an assessment that you cannot really prepare for. What happens is you have initial interviews and then you meet with the higher ups in your secondary interviews.

    Interview Questions

    Audit Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Malvern, PA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vanguard (Malvern, PA (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Went through initial HR screening, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager and later a group interview with the team- interviewers were pleasant and relaxed, structured to assess cultural fit. After the final interview, I received almost immediate positive feedback from HR that I would be made an offer for the position. Several days later I was offered a more junior level position instead with no guarantees on promotion.

    Java Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Vanguard.

    Interview

    The company HR department is a mess, no one would respond your email at some point. First, an online test easy to earth that everyone can pass. Then, an HR recruiter contacts me through email asking for a phone interview appointment for the next step, I emailed back with time, and we agreed on a time. But when time comes, no one calls me at all, I waited for hours, and try to email her and call her number, no one response. Weeks later, still no response at all, I decided to call HR department to ask why, department calls on her, she then gave me feedback saying something happened and apologies to me, and re-schedule a phone interview. That round is just for general resume questions, the recruiter also set up next-round(last one on-site) interview for me in phone. Days after, I flew out to Malvern PA, the interview went with 1 behavior and 1 technical, and goes smoothly, before I leave, they said they are going to have results emailed to me in 2 weeks, but I waited for 5 weeks after the on-site, still has no response, I tried to email my recruiter, no response at all. After around the 6th week, I got an email saying I am rejected. This whole interview process took me 2 MONTH. Besides, I keep getting junk mails saying that Vanguard scheduled me travels several times, and I asked another recruiter, she told me that has nothing to do with Vanguard? just ignore them? That was my worst experience..........
