    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FactSet in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Once you submit the CV and cover letter and get through the 3 test (financial, numerical and excel) which are pretty easy compared to the other tests. Then theres the assessment centre, where you have a group exercise which is just prioritising a list of tasks and then what they call a micro teach, you are told to prepare in advance something to teach (non-finance related - the simpler the better for 10 minutes. Lastly theres the final interview which is with two consultant managers. Questions were pretty standard: why this particular industry? where else have you applied? questions on your CV? where would you invest your money right now? what finance topic interests you at the moment? who are the competitors - how does FactSet differ? The interviewers were very nice but do ask a lot of questions so know why you want to work there

    interviewed at FactSet in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview With HR + 3 Tests.
    HR Interview:
    Pretty basic, nothing technical.
    Questions on CV, competency based, and, motivation for the job.

    Tests:
    Finance - As I am from a non finance background I found this the most difficult but still pretty easy . Just brush up on your financial terms
    Maths test - Algebra based
    Excel Test -
    The test are not difficult at all, you will have more than enough time to finish them all

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at FactSet in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    FactSet contacted me less than a week after I sent cv+cover by email to apply for the graduate position.
    They proposed me a date and time asking me a confirmation of mobile and underlining that the phone interview would be about my motivations to work for FactSet.
    Since I am not a native English speaker, I was worried about listening skills but I did not understand only one question about financial situation that I replied with a general answer.
    Besides that, the interviewer was careful about my real knowledge about the activity of FactSet, their competitors, products and the role of consultant in the company.
    No technical questions, only one question about the financial crisis
