I applied through college or university. I interviewed at SEI Investments.
A HR personnel contacted and did screening. Then set up an interview. Interviewed with hiring managers and within a week they called me on board. It was not a lengthy process.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in October 2014.
I was contacted a couple of weeks after I applied online. I went to their headquarters in Oaks, PA. The interview process was fairly easy and repetitive. 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.

I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in October 2014.
Went through the first phone interview process with SEI investments, made it to the face to face interview, have not gone in for that yet. The first interview was very friendly and conducted face to face at a job fair after looking into resume. Great personalities from SEI. I enjoyed speaking with them and I am very interested in the company.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at SEI Investments.
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.
- Mostly behavioral questions. Nothing special. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in August 2014.
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!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SEI Investments.
Received a call from a recruiter. Interviewed a few days later. Questions were mostly situational and easy to answer as long as you prepare appropriately. After a few days of not hearing back, I sent the recruiter and email and then they responded with an offer. It took about another month before I actually started at the office.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SEI Investments (New York, NY) in August 2014.
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 :(

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA).
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.
There is no negotiation. Every Fund Accountant starts with $35,000.
