    I applied this position through internet on their website. Very quickly, I received reply in my mail box for for the arrangement of interveiw. Three people conducted the interview and they tried to make me feel easy and relax. The whole process was quite friendly, just as talking to your friend. No surprising questions, nor difficult technical ones.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process, I can say, was relatively fast. You can expect an invitation for the initial interview approximately three weeks after the examination. It was my first interview since I was a fresh graduate then so I kinda have said things which must not come out any interviewees mouth in a screening process.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at FactSet in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got a referral from a friend so the process was really quick. The HR contacted me the day I submitted my resume and schedule me for an exam. I had an exam and interview all in one day. I already got my job offer the next day. I waited for one week to start the training since they hire by batch.
