    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FactSet (San Francisco, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Group of 5 potential candidates. Took us to lunch, gave us a basic IQ test, interview with 3-5 people around the office whole process takes about 5 hours. Gave a brief excel test as well. This was definitely one of the more difficult interview processes I have had but seems like a good company to work for.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT) in September 2010.

    Interview

    The company looks for someone that would be a great fit with the culture. They convey the message that personality is something that can not be taught but skills can always be learned. There are a number of interviews but all of hem assess fit with the company and interest within the specific job type.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY) in November 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process is pretty straight forward. 6 interviews, mostly with the heads of the groups. Personality, skills, and general "likability" and employee-fit type questions. It was not too stressful. Be ready to discuss yourself. And have a good personality. Without it, you will not get the job. Ask questions and never discuss salary, until you get the offer, of course.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FactSet (Chicago, IL) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Attended a career fair where Factset had a booth set up. Called the next day to invite me to interview in their Chicago office.

    Consisted of 4 one-on-one interviews with consulting managers. The interviews were behavioral based with plenty of time to ask questions. Know what the job entails and have plenty of questions to ask. Not really any technical questions at all. Really laid back. They just want to see if you fit the mold they want you to be. At the end there is a mind teaser type exercise also.
