    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    there was a written aptitude test which consisted of basic information about yourself, education and questions on logical reasoning, quantitative and english passage.
    please time yourself accordingly for the test as it is too lengthy and you would only be given 30 mins to complete it.
    also dont stress too much on questions that you're not able to solve as youl lose time.

    Interview Details

    i reached phase 3.
    the questions revolve around shares and stocks and other financial basics.
    i was asked:
    name few indian companies?
    why do u say they are indian?
    what is index?
    what is CDS?
    why capital IQ?
    i answered all of them correct and my interview went quite well but they selected just 1 candidate out of 6.
    but reaching phase 3 is also not an easy task. all the best to all the aspirants.

    At first I spoke to HR, very brusk. Asking about past experience, expected pay, what technologies I was most comfertable with. Then I had a phone interview with team lead. Very friendly, looking for lots of questions. Scheduled a technical interview. Basic array manipulation and algorythms questions. Said they were not sure I was a good fit yet but that they looked forward to heering from me in the future with more experience under my belt.
