    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at S&P Capital IQ (Washington, DC) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through a campus recruiter. The process took three weeks, and I was interviewed by two people, a product consultant and a account manager. The interviewers were very straight forward about the position description, the hiring process, and the company culture. Most of the interview was spent discussing my major and qualifications, and there were very few behavioral questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at S&P Capital IQ (New York, NY) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I came in as an experienced hire, so my interview process was a bit different. Basically, it was sitting with three different people (a VP, an associate and my boss) and just talking about why I wanted the position and my strengths with customer service. Very easy interview- they need people so as long as you have a pulse you should be okay.

    Interview Questions

    • Basically having to sit there while the VP bashed my previous place of employment. I, being a professional (unlike half the people at the company), did not join in on the bashing. Still not sure if that was a test or if the VP is that immature.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Flat offer. No negotiation. At the end of the day, you are a pawn in a conglomerate- they don't care about you. It used to be that Capital IQ was an agile, small time software company. The company has gone to the dogs.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at S&P Capital IQ (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The first round interview was in the Toronto office, where I had two 30 minute interviews with 2 people in each interview. They were very friendly, and I felt it was more of a discussion than an interview. I then got a second round interview, which was the same format, in that I had another two 30 minute interviews with 4 more people. All these interviews were behavioral, no technical questions.

    Interview Questions

    • In all interviews, they asked me to walk myself through my resume. Some other questions were: - why should we hire you over the other qualified candidates? - why sales? - can you do a sales pitch - what do you do for fun   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at S&P Capital IQ (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Following an online application that I submitted on Sunday evening (2am!) I received an email on Monday morning inviting me for a telephone interview on Tuesday morning. The interview lasted exactly 25 minutes and covered the company itself and put great emphasis on my CV. The CV related questions were many! Basically, all misunderstandings were covered in a very professional manner. There were a couple of ice-breaking questions to release the tension but other than that everything was very professional. The interviewer was amazing, very thoughtful and nice in general. Interview questions included: Tell me more about the company Tell me more about the position you are applying for What makes you the best candidate What did you do in this experience... ? Hope that helps!
