    Data Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Jersey City, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Jersey City, NJ
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CITCO Fund Services in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was via a recruiter, followed by an in-person interview with the hiring manager. After that, phone screens with 2-3 potential peers (one bailed), then in-office interviews with manager's peers, business clients, and superiors. The message was consistent that fit with corporate culture was a key necessity; however, different interviewers did seem to have different (and sometimes conflicting) priorities with regards to the position requirements. Some interviewers did not preview the resume before arriving at the interview.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CITCO Fund Services in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    They were staffing the office from scratch and the interview process was very informal. I think as long as you had decent experience on your resume and presented yourself well in the interview, you were offered the job.

    Interview Questions
    • None were challenging at the time. It may be different now.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't try much to negotiate because they were paying all of the health insurance, which to me (for the first couple of years) was a good enough benefit that the low pay wasn't too much of a problem.
