    Positive Experience
    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.
