Leveraged Loan Analyst Interview

Leveraged Loan Analyst
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in May 2014.

Interview Details – One phone interview. Pleasant woman although I felt the conversation was extremely formal and she wasn't particularly interested in talking about the position which I was interested in learning more about. I was told if the company was interested I'd be called in but I wasn't. I'm wondering what knocked me off in that screening call. I don't think she like my answer to "What interests you in the position?"

Product Consultant Interview

Product Consultant
Washington, DC

I applied through college or university - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in February 2014.

Interview Details – I applied through a campus recruiter. The process took three weeks, and I was interviewed by two people, a product consultant and a account manager. The interviewers were very straight forward about the position description, the hiring process, and the company culture. Most of the interview was spent discussing my major and qualifications, and there were very few behavioral questions.

Interview Question – I do not come from a finance background, so the interviewers really grilled me on how my background fit into the job position.   Answer Question

Summer Software Developer Intern Interview

Summer Software Developer Intern
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in March 2014.

Interview Details – The application was online and it took about about 6 months before I got an email to schedule a telephonic interview. Because it took so long, I had actually forgotten I had applied to this position. The manager who called me was a great conversationalist and asked great questions but was not knowledgeable about programming subjects.

Interview Question – What do you know about S&P Capital IQ?
Explain in detail the process of software development.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ.

Interview Details – Got interview through on-campus recruiting. There was a 30 min pre-interview technology test. Afterwards, a behavioral interview where the recruiter discusses the results from the test and asks questions about your approach. There were plenty of questions about why you chose a certain design and other human-computer interaction questions. Finally, the recruiter gives a general overview of the position and responsibilities. Very informal one-on-one talk.
