    Training & Operations Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Charlottesville, VA

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at SNL Financial in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through an employee referral. With referrals, you are guaranteed a phone interview. This was conducted with a recruiter. After the phone interview, I received an email from the recruiter the next day to set up a time to come in for an interview with the manager of the department. I then received an email from the "scheduling department" to confirm the date and time with directions and instructions for the day of the interview. The directions were unclear and I had no idea what door to go in. This caused me to be late. No one mentioned it, but I was furious. Interview was simple.. They asked a lot of weird questions that seemed unnecessary.. It's been about a month since my interview. The posting has been removed and I haven't heard anything. I doubt I got the job. Even being qualified and referred by the employee previously in the position. Weird employer. Didn't really want to work there anyways.

    Senior Editor Interview

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at SNL Financial.

    Interview Details

    It was amazingly easy and very short. That should have been a red flag right away. They have a lot of employee churn in this company--with the exception of managers, bright people usually stay only a year or two--so anyone who is minimally qualified to do the job is likely to get an offer.

    It was a non-negotiable offer, but not bad pay by C'ville standards.

    Senior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Charlottesville, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlottesville, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at SNL Financial.

    Interview Details

    Very easy. I had the job within a two weeks of submitting my resume through a former employee. There were no phone interviews, and I spent about two hours talking in person to the people I would be working with. There were no tricky questions, and I don't even remember many questions about me at all.

    Negotiation Details
    HR told me I was getting paid at the top of my band and there was no room for negotiation. Looking at glassdoor now, it appears that that was completely false.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at SNL Financial in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    phone interiview followed by 4 separate 1 hour interviews in office. All interviewers pretty much asked the same basic questions, with some sql questions mixed in. They were really concerned with the SQL Having clause for some reason.

    It took them 5 weeks to follow up after the interview!!

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Charlottesville, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlottesville, VA
    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at SNL Financial in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted to have a phone interview where they mostly asked fit questions and a good amount of behavioral questions. After the 1st interview I was called into the office for more questions to ensure I was a qualified candidate. All the people there are looking for is whether or not you are a normal enough person to have a beer with. That, and don't say anything completely dumb.
