    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DST Systems (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The entire process took a little over a month. I applied online and had 4 interviews total with the third being a face to face interview. I receive an email requesting a phone screening by HR rep approximately 2 days after I applied. This was followed by another phone interview with the Sr. Recruiter, about a week or two later with the hiring manager, with a face to face the following week. My final interview was with Sr. Management which was over the phone. The questions over the phone were basic resume review; work history, experience, and system knowledge. The in person interview was 2 hours and more formal using the new normal STAR method. I interview with the hiring manager and two additional individuals that I would be supporting. It was overall a seamless process and very straight forward; naturally looking for experience, industry knowledge, interpersonal skills, and personality fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DST Systems.

    Interview

    The interview had pretty typical questions of an interview. For me, the phone interview was the trickiest part for me. I'd say to anyone applying that they have to prepare for the phone interview because for me that was what got in the way to the 3rd interview. Also, research actively about the company and the industry prior to the interview.
