    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at SunGard (Boston, MA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I had a very informal interview due to a personal connection. I was asked about my capabilities with Excel and time management skills. The job had to be taught regardless, so the interview was more about informing me of what I was going to do and analyzing whether I could do it or not. As I said it wasn't very straightforward.
