    Operations Analyst - IMS, Separately Managed Accounts Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SEI Investments in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Standard phone interview then onsite interview. I applied to two jobs. First job interviews went well but I was not offered the positions. Interviewed by potential boss and two members of the team. All three were rather young and very nice. Situational and experience questions. Second job interview (was for the separately managed accounts department) did not go well. The two older gentlemen I interviewed with (one the potential boss and the other a team member) seemed to already have decided not to give me the job before I walked in. I drove four hours for the interview to be interrupted and talked down to. They even laughed at me at one point as if I was not in the room. Needless to say I did not get an offer for the position. Even one in HR was very nice though. Know what job you are applying for and tailor your responses to the job description.

    Interview Questions
    • Non really. Be ready to describe a situation when you___ and what the positive result was. Know about mutual funds and the stock market a bit.   Answer Question

I was interviewed by 4 different persons that were basically asking the same questions. All behavioral and not technical. They were very nice and warm. After the interview, you get a tour of the campus.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview Details

    Applied and received a phone call from an HR representative the next day. Scheduled a phone interview which was later cancelled due to poor reception (I am certain it wasn't on my side). Resecheduled via email but one hour before the interview I got an email in which they asked me to reschedule because HR representative was sick. I wrote back with a list of times I was available. I never heard back from them until four weeks later. Finally, I had a phone interview. While the HR representative was nice and professional, she seemed unprepared and didn't facilitate the interview process.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at SEI Investments in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter called about 15 minutes late. She apologized and I said it was OK. Then she said that the position I had applied for had already been filled but she had another position that I could be interested in. I was annoyed that she had wasted my time by scheduling an interview for a position that had already been filled.
    This company is a joke!
