Product Consultant Interview

Product Consultant

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ.

Interview Details – The first round interview was on campus following a school career fair and resume drop. Next was a super day at the company's New York Ciy headquarters. All of the questions were very easy. They were mostly about your background and experience. Nothing to worry about at all. Emphasize a passion for finance and helping others, and you'll be fine.

Interview Question – Walk me through your resume. Tell me about a time you exhibited _____?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation.

Very Easy Interview

Product Consultant Interview

Product Consultant
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in December 2011.

Interview Details – I came in as an experienced hire, so my interview process was a bit different. Basically, it was sitting with three different people (a VP, an associate and my boss) and just talking about why I wanted the position and my strengths with customer service. Very easy interview- they need people so as long as you have a pulse you should be okay.

Interview Question – Basically having to sit there while the VP bashed my previous place of employment. I, being a professional (unlike half the people at the company), did not join in on the bashing. Still not sure if that was a test or if the VP is that immature.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Flat offer. No negotiation. At the end of the day, you are a pawn in a conglomerate- they don't care about you. It used to be that Capital IQ was an agile, small time software company. The company has gone to the dogs.

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

Interview Details – I met representatives of the company at a university career fair, then had an on-campus interview and a day consisting of four interviews at the office in New York. Questions were mostly focused on my personal experience, with a few questions relating to the attributes of the company as a whole.

Interview Question – How well are you able to deal with angry clients and bosses as well as personal failures?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. The offer was very standardized and there was essentially no flexibility.
