    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online (LinkedIn), received a phone interview within a couple of days, but the interviewer didn't call at the scheduled time. After a few attempts to reach the interviewer, the HR reached out to me in about 10 days and scheduled a phone interview. The interview was very short, hardly 10-15mins just discussing past experience. I was immediately asked for a next round which would be taken by the hiring manager and that was held in the next few days over the phone.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (White Plains, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had a good experience being interviewed for this role. It was a 20 minutes telephonic interview.
    The interviewer asked me about my projects related to SQL. What was it about? How much did I contribute to it?
    The overall interview was smooth and basically is was a resume walk through.
    They have three rounds I believe.. Phone screening, then in person interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (Middletown, CT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    On-campus interview with school alumnus followed by an on-site interview. Argus was accommodating in switching my on-site interview to a Skype interview when I could not make it to the office due to snowy conditions on the scheduled day of my interview. Received the offer within a week of my Skype interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (White Plains, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through my college career portal. The company emailed me the same week to set up an initial phone screen. The phone screen was basic stuff just about availability and school. They called me back later the same day to invite me in next week.

    At the office I interviewed 1:1 with three different hiring managers from three different teams. Basic SQL questions you can find by googling SQL interview questions, basic riddles, minor behavior questions. Overall was an easy and smooth interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (White Plains, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through university career portal. Got a phone interview call which was just introductory. During the call itself, the HR invited me to an onsite interview the very next day (I agreed because I was free)

    This was when I decided to check Glassdoor reviews for Argus, and I was shocked. I immediately lost interest in working here, but still went prepared for the interview because I didn't have an internship then. I decided to ask the HR during the onsite interview why the Glassdoor reviews are so pathetic.

    Now the actual interview process. I was interviewed by 3 managers, 30 minutes each. First guy was super young, almost seemed like I was his first ever interview. He didn't know what to ask, just went through my resume. I got done with this guy in 15 minutes.

    The next interviewer was decent, asked relevant SQL questions and resume based questions. The questions were very basic, like the kinds you find when you google "SQL Interview Questions"

    The third interviewer seemed like a senior manager, middle aged. He couldn't understand one of my projects and wasted 20 minutes arguing with me about it unnecessarily. He, like the second guy, asked generic SQL questions and cliched puzzles like counting time with candles.

    The overall feel of the place, just walking through it, was depressing. I could literally sense a "lol don't come to work here" vibe from a few of them who looked at me walking around.

    Thankfully for me, I had an interview process going simultaneously at a startup, where everything was SO different and SO much better.

    They offered me an internship 2 weeks later with an absolutely pathetic offer (less than half of what the startup is paying me) and considering this company is in White Plains, I wonder why anyone would consider it. Seemed like a joke offer, a company that doesn't value it's employees at all.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty good, had 1 on campus interview, then followed by an office interview with 4 professionals and 1 with the recruiter. The interview with the professionals were rather unstructured, allowing you to have a nice conversation a develop a connection with the interviewers. Overall positive experience with the interviewers and the recruiters. However, the company was very slow with the reimbursement for travel expenses to the interview. Had to send a lot of emails, and it took 4 months for them to finally send a check for the reimbursement.
