    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online through my university, then contacted to do an in person interview. After this, you can get invited to go to an office and go through some more rounds of interviews with other staff members. The on site interview is meeting with 4 or 5 people and each person takes you through a different exercise. One was a repeat of the in person interview, one was an excel skills test, another was reading comprehension, one was financial skills evaluation, and another one was a written test.

First they had a mini seminar on how to use the software, then I interviewed with about four different people with various positions around the office. It ended with a brain teasers quiz and then we were taken out to lunch.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FactSet (Troy, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through school I was attending and had interview on campus. Night before the interview the interviewer gave a presentation on what consultants did at Factset and what Factset did. It wasn't until this presentation that I realized entry level FactSet consultants don't do anything besides telling clients how to use the software.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FactSet.

    Interview

    The day started by going out to lunch with two young FactSet Consultants. Following lunch, we returned to the office. We were given a demo of the software and we were then interviewed by four of the FactSet managers. Each manager had their own set of questions. During one of the interviews we were asked to complete a brain teaser quiz.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was easy. There were maybe 2 basic excel questions. Also show your interest in the market. These can be pretty broad. Show that you a sociable person as well, seeing as the job requires trainings and a lot of face2face interaction. I found that there was one hardo manager interview, and another nice manager interview. Classic play. Just recognize its a facade (hopefuly lol) and treat it like a joke. Thats what I did, and it was chill.

    Submitted my resume through employee referral. Heard from HR within a few days, scheduled a phone screening, which took about 20 minutes. Contacted within another few days regarding an in person interview with 4 consultant managers and their boss. Also included a demo of the platform and lunch with two consultants. Heard from HR again within a few hours after the interview and was offered the job. Overall simple and quick process. Very positive!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at FactSet in July 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview discussing yourself and series of questions about experiences. The interviewer was nice but simply asked questions and then moved on. Seemed to brush off some answers and just reading a series of predetermined questions and write what I said. I felt like I had to rant to get out what I wanted to say because there was no follow up questions.

    The questions were relevant, as well as, fairly standard for the position. Nothing out of the ordinary was asked based on the type of company and the position.

    Replied with an email about a week later stating the result of whether or not you move forward.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Pretty straightforward. Get a demo of the factset software from a consultant and then proceed to go through 4 interviews (about 30 mins each) with 4 different managers. Nice people and ask mainly behavioral questions or asked you to talk them through your resume.
