    Investment Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at SEI in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was "normal." There was a brief 5 minute review of my resume, highlighting any particular questions the interviewer had. The following 45-50 minutes was essentially a back and forth conversation discussing things such as the general economy to specifics on a particular industry and company.

    Interview Questions
    • I would say that the most difficult questions pertained to industries that I was not as brushed up on as I should have been. However, applying certain consistencies among industries allowed me to get through those questions.   Answer Question
