    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Received a call for a phone interview quickly after applying for position. Scheduled onsite interview and spent 2 1/2 hours interviewing with various members of the marketing team and touring the building. I was told I would hear from the HR rep within a week. After two weeks, I emailed to follow-up yet never heard back from anyone.

    Asset Data Services Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Oaks, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at SEI (Oaks, PA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    From the time I had an on campus interview until the day I was finally notified someone else was given the offer had to be at least three months, with hardly any communication. On campus interview was with an HR rep who seemed to practically follow a script. About two months after my campus interview I was invited to SEI's headquarters where I was given a tour and met with HR and about 5 members of the group I was interviewing for. The interview process was average, easy to talk to the people from the department. In the end I was not given the offer even though it was said the hiring managers gave me a great review, no one would give me a specific reason why. In retrospect I am actually happy I was not given a offer because of the lack of communication, professionalism, and consistency from the HR department - this leads me to be skeptical of how the rest of the organization operates.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at SEI (Oaks, PA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by three people. One person got 30 minutes, the next 30 minutes and so on. Each person was on the team I would be working under, so they gave me their personal experiences. Very laid-back interview. No behavioral-based questions, just an "tell me why you want to be here" kind of interview.
