    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at SunGard (Boston, MA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I had a very informal interview due to a personal connection. I was asked about my capabilities with Excel and time management skills. The job had to be taught regardless, so the interview was more about informing me of what I was going to do and analyzing whether I could do it or not. As I said it wasn't very straightforward.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SunGard (New York, NY) in May 2009.

    Interview

    The recruiter who contacted me and the hiring manager who interviewed me one on one were both very nice and smart people, but had already formed an opinion of me based on my resume. The entire process focused more on the organization rather than the position and its requirements. I also met with a few representatives of the team who seemed very intelligent, but uninterested in asking me questions about myself.
