    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at SEI Investments in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Got an email to set up a phone interview shortly after. I would say about 2-4 days afterwards. Phone interview went very smoothly as they should. No hard questions. They were just trying to get a feel for whether you were a fit or not. It went very well as I was very qualified for the position (CFA candidate, MS in finance degree etc etc) on top of a solid career record with previous experience. I was expecting to go forward with the in-person interview process but never heard back. Kind of unprofessional :(

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oaks, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter reached out to me and asked if I was interested in the position. I went through a phone interview and then an office interview with 3 supervisors. The recruiter asked what my salary expectations were before the office interview and then told me what the salary would be and asked if it was okay. The salary is way below the industry average, but the company culture is innovative and awesome.

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SEI Investments in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on their website, and received a phone call one week later to set up a phone interview. This phone interview was followed by two on-site interviews. Phone interview was with an HR rep, and was pleasant, with basic questions, mostly behavioral. On-site interviews were with people within the position's respective department, and again, the process was very pleasant. Also was given a tour of the campus prior to the first interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview Details

    I went through a job agency. The interview was schedule at 10.30. I waited in the lobby for 15 minutes before somebody came downstairs and took me to the interview room. It did not seem organized to me as the lady told me she is trying to find the hiring manager as he is away from his office. I was told to wait few minutes in the interview room. After five minutes she came back and said she will conduct the interview as she can not find the Hiring Manager!!

    Interview Questions
    • All were very general questions what we expect in an interview. For example tell me about yourself, why you choose accounting as a profession, why you applied with SEI? Tell me about your strength, weaknesses, Why are you suitable for this post?   View Answer

    Internal Account Executive Advisor Network Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at SEI Investments in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had 6 (yes six) interviews over the course of the day, 3 with junior associates, 2 with seniors, and then another junior after the director got pulled into a meeting. The interviews themselves were okay, but having six was just extremely repetitive. I found myself sharing the same background info ad nauseam and asking the same questions and getting the same answers. After the day I was told I'd hear back in a week or so. I never heard back. Nothing, despite numerous attempts contacting the recruiter. Very unprofessional process and organization.
