    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (White Plains, NY) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I had three one on one interviews. They all combined case study, resume and fit questions. They are very interested in you knowing about how credit card companies work, how they make money, and what their expenses are.

    The first interviewer's case study was about how much credit card companies make per person, per year. The interviewer walked me through the case study but kept using "insider" terms for things that I did not know, when a simpler term would have sufficed.

    The second interviewer's case study was to determine how many light bulbs are sold in the united states in a year.

    The third interviewer's case study was about what groups would be the most profitable to a credit card company. I was given four groups with information about their credit card habits and was then asked questions about these groups.

    The resume and fit questions were the usual things. "Why do you want to work at Argus?", "Tell me about this part of your resume", "Do you have any programming experience?"

    Interview Questions

    • How many light bulbs are sold to households in the United States in a year?   2 Answers
    • Which of these groups is the most profitable for a credit card company?

      Group One: Uses the credit card a lot but never carries over a balance.

      Group Two: Uses the credit card a lot and carries over a balance every month.

      Group Three: Uses the credit card occasionally and carries over a balance every month.

      Group Four: Never uses the credit card.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (White Plains, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    They had a total of four people interviewing each applicant, one is from HR and the rest are analysts. They gave several case interviews specific to the credit card industry. If you could, make sure you do extensive research on the industry, and think about questions such as what kind of people are most likely to occur credit card fees, how to identify them, etc. They also had a few brain teasers. They are easy as long as you still have a sharp mind after hours of interview. Also, go over your statistical knowledge such as R^2=1-SSE/SSTO.
