    Operations Analyst - IMS, Separately Managed Accounts Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SEI Investments in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Standard phone interview then onsite interview. I applied to two jobs. First job interviews went well but I was not offered the positions. Interviewed by potential boss and two members of the team. All three were rather young and very nice. Situational and experience questions. Second job interview (was for the separately managed accounts department) did not go well. The two older gentlemen I interviewed with (one the potential boss and the other a team member) seemed to already have decided not to give me the job before I walked in. I drove four hours for the interview to be interrupted and talked down to. They even laughed at me at one point as if I was not in the room. Needless to say I did not get an offer for the position. Even one in HR was very nice though. Know what job you are applying for and tailor your responses to the job description.

    Went through the first phone interview process with SEI investments, made it to the face to face interview, have not gone in for that yet.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview Details

    Applied and received a phone call from an HR representative the next day. Scheduled a phone interview which was later cancelled due to poor reception (I am certain it wasn't on my side). Resecheduled via email but one hour before the interview I got an email in which they asked me to reschedule because HR representative was sick. I wrote back with a list of times I was available. I never heard back from them until four weeks later. Finally, I had a phone interview. While the HR representative was nice and professional, she seemed unprepared and didn't facilitate the interview process.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at SEI Investments in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter called about 15 minutes late. She apologized and I said it was OK. Then she said that the position I had applied for had already been filled but she had another position that I could be interested in. I was annoyed that she had wasted my time by scheduling an interview for a position that had already been filled.
    This company is a joke!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at SEI Investments in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got an email to set up a phone interview shortly after. I would say about 2-4 days afterwards. Phone interview went very smoothly as they should. No hard questions. They were just trying to get a feel for whether you were a fit or not. It went very well as I was very qualified for the position (CFA candidate, MS in finance degree etc etc) on top of a solid career record with previous experience. I was expecting to go forward with the in-person interview process but never heard back. Kind of unprofessional :(

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview Details

    I went through a job agency. The interview was schedule at 10.30. I waited in the lobby for 15 minutes before somebody came downstairs and took me to the interview room. It did not seem organized to me as the lady told me she is trying to find the hiring manager as he is away from his office. I was told to wait few minutes in the interview room. After five minutes she came back and said she will conduct the interview as she can not find the Hiring Manager!!

    Interview Questions
    • All were very general questions what we expect in an interview. For example tell me about yourself, why you choose accounting as a profession, why you applied with SEI? Tell me about your strength, weaknesses, Why are you suitable for this post?   View Answer

    Internal Account Executive Advisor Network Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at SEI Investments in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had 6 (yes six) interviews over the course of the day, 3 with junior associates, 2 with seniors, and then another junior after the director got pulled into a meeting. The interviews themselves were okay, but having six was just extremely repetitive. I found myself sharing the same background info ad nauseam and asking the same questions and getting the same answers. After the day I was told I'd hear back in a week or so. I never heard back. Nothing, despite numerous attempts contacting the recruiter. Very unprofessional process and organization.
