    Interview Questions

    • There was one question on designing a class/set of classes which help to find the stock quote for a particular company. A method was provided which takes a sticker(String) as an input and gives the stock value(double). But this method was too expensive to call, so how would you optimize your solution(make the minimal number of calls to this method). Also the stock value returned should not be more than an hour old. There were subparts to this question, on caching the values and multithreading.   Answer Question
    • Given a tree and a value n, check if the sum of values on any path of the tree from root to a leaf equals to that value.   Answer Question

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I heard about an intern opportunity through an acquaintance of mine. I contacted the company and submitted a resume and cover letter and received a response within a day or two. Every one who I interacted with in the company was very kind and courteous. The process consisted of multiple phone interviews. Even though I wasn't able to get an internship opportunity for the summer I will still keep in contact with the representatives as this is an incredible place to work.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ (New York, NY) in October 2010.

    Interview

    First round interview on campus. Straight forward skills test followed by a 1:1 interview reviewing the test. I got a call relatively quickly inviting me to NYC for a second round interview. The interview was a bunch of 1:1 interviews with current employees. The questions ranged from technical to personal. Nothing was too difficult. They were nice enough to fly me up for the day, yet although they offered to pay for the taxi ride, they never did. Taxis in NYC are not cheap.

    it's a video interview composed of 11 questions. Nothing technical or unexpected. I was asked questions like why do you want to do this internship, what do you want to get from it, what personal qualities do you have that suit this position... For each question I got 30 seconds for preparation and 3 minutes to give the formal answer.
