Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT) in October 2014.

Interview

Start with on campus recruiting and job fair. The next step was phone interview. The manager was very nice. It was all about past working experience. The onsite was two weeks after the phone interview at their headquarter with five different people, four technical and one HR. The questions itself was not that hard but they asked very detail question. Mostly database and Linux questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT).

    Interview

    First contact was an email from HR wanting to setup a phone interview. Phone interview was technical with 4 to 6 people online, it was hard to tell. In person is an all day event, it goes from 9am to around 2pm, there are 4 technically 5 interviews including HR. All interviews less the HR interview are technical, know your material. They love probing questions, I personally do not like them, nor see the value in them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT) in November 2009.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a position at FactSet while completing my degree. HR reached out promptly following a college career fair, which made the process move quickly. FactSet enjoys creating an excitement and that leads to a positive perception of the corporate culture. Fresh, agile in hiring process, not too bureaucratic, and not extra phone screens. Went through one 1:1 phone screen interview, followed 10 days later by a full-day onsite interview speaking with systems engineers and engineering managers. Four 45-minute technical interviews with pairs of interviewers through the day, plus intro, interview with manager, interview with asst director, discussion with HR, and lunch. Long day. I received an offer a few days later and was given 2 weeks to reply.
