    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    I attended the company's info session at my school. After the info session, we could make appoints for a 1-1 interview the next day. The interviewer was very nice. The interview lasts about an hour. There was around 4 technical questions. Overall, I thought the interview went well. However, it seems like they wanted students coming into their summer internship with lots of experience in the field.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Well the interview process consists of 5 eliminating rounds. Round 1 is a written IQ test, duration is 30 mins and is pretty general. Thereafter Round 2 is HR round, that is highly unforeseen and leads to majority of eliminations, in my case close to 22 people were eliminated with only 3 making to the next round. Round 3 again is a written test of duration 90 mins. Again quite generic nothing specific. All these round take place on a single day. Thereafter you will be called if you are shortlisted for Round 4 which is basically a personal interview, wherein two people of manager rank will sore down your neck. And finally if go get further shortlisted there is the final Round 5 that is called the director's round which is the last hurdle before you are made an offer.
    But be aware that many a times they simply land up hiring no one, hence its not certain that someone will get hired out of all that appear.

    Tech QA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at S&P Capital IQ in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied at the company's website portal and got a mail for the interview on 21st November.
    The process consisted of the following rounds
    1. Aptitude Test.
    2. HR interview.
    3. Written subjective test.
    4. Technical interview.
    5. Another interview.

    The first round is more of a form cum test round where you have to fill in some details and answer some easy logical, quantitative and English questions. The important thing here is to not miss out on any question as there's no negative marking. It's fairly easy.

    The second round is the HR interview but it was mostly technical. Just basic questions about testing and what the profile is about and also what u know about the company.

    The Third round consists of 10 subjective questions. Mostly are about the various types of testing and about writing test cases.

    The fourth round is again an interview which they tell me is the manger level interview.

    The above four rounds happened on the same day. I was told the result for the fourth round would be communicated to me within a week. It has been a week since then and i haven't heard from them so far. I guess it's their subtle way of saying, thanks but you haven't been selected for further rounds.
