College Recruiting Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and interviewed at SEI Investments.

Interview Details – The first round consisted of two thirty minute interviews. The first interview was mostly behavioral...tell me about a time you worked in a group...what is your biggest weakness, etc. The second interview was predominantly a discussion of my resume. Both interviews were very relaxed and informal. For the final round I interviewed at SEI with the actual department I would be working with. It took approximately an hour and was a blend of both behavioral and resume type questions.

Accounting Analyst Interview

Accounting Analyst

Interviewed at SEI Investments

Interview Details – The interview was like a normal interview with the basic interview questions. I met with three different supervisors. Two of the three supervisors that interviewed me left the company in the short time I was working there.

Interview Question – There were no really tough interview questions. Some of the supervisors didn't even know what to ask, because the one before asked the same questions. Pretty poor interview process.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SEI Investments in March 2011.

Interview Details – They contacted me via e-mail and asked me to come for an interview day. The day consists of 1 on 1 interviews that are 20 minutes long, and you rotate through about 4 people. It's very easy because they all basically ask you the same questions, and they're very nice. All background/interest in the job questions. Everyone was very nice

Analyst, Alternative Operations Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Oaks, PA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at SEI Investments in April 2012.

Interview Details – Interview consisted of a Phone interview followed by two 2 on 1 interviews from supervisors in the departments the candidate would end up in. The people working at SEI are GED, community/local college people who probably barely made it through college. They will not hire you if you demonstrate having ambition or a brain, hide you ability if you want to work here, tell them you want to start and die at the low level position you apply to.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at SEI Investments.

Interview Details – Went through a staffing agency. Went on tour first and interviewed shortly with HR rep. Met with 1-3 people in 4 separate interviews for 30 mins. Easy behavioral and experience questions. Was difficult interviewing with so many different people. Almost forgot if i was repeating myself by the end. Laid back interviewers. Interviewed on a Friday and heard back by Tuesday. Really looking for motivated, team player, responsible person for this position.

Negotiation Details – none
