    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FactSet.

    Interview

    Waste of time. The day-to-day described in the interview did not match the description listed online. Hiring manager was condescending and did not do their research before contacting me as it was obviously not a fit.

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FactSet (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Same process as everyone else on here. Got to the in-person interview in SF & I had 4 interviews, 2 "good cop" 2 "bad cop" interviews with a test at the end. Was told I would hear back within 2 weeks, that was end of March. After following up, I still have not heard back to this day. So unprofessional from a large established company.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    HR was really nice and very prompt. However interviewer seemed to be a software engineer with not much background in interviewing people. Even though I applied for a software engineer position and I informed him that I have not worked with web technologies much, he kept on asking web related stuff instead of OOP concept or any programming question or anything in general other than web technologies.
