    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at FactSet (Hanover, NH) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was told that the position was hold at the point I applied, but she'd like to talk to me as a network connection. It was a recruiter interview so I just talked about my background. It was like she was filling up a application for me (I was interior referred so I didn't fill up the online applications).

    I'm actually an international student so I said I need sponsor in the future. She said they don't offer sponsor to interaction designers, so... the interview was done....

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through our school's online career board. Extremely fast turnaround with notification for interview in less than a week. I met with an software engineer in-person for a 1:1 interview on campus. Standard technical interview, asked about data structures (in my case hash tables) followed by a coding question. The interviewer was fairly enthusiastic and open to discussing the ins and outs of the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me how to check if a string is a palindrome. Followed up by asking how to check if inserting, deleting, or replacing a character would result in a palindrome.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FactSet in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview which is basically a screening process. I have a background in data analysis but my interview mostly consisted of data structures and multi-threading. I couldn't answer clearly and it was definitely my fault that I didn't review data structures and threads to brush up the concepts. For any future aspirants I would advice you to go through data structures and threads.

    Interview Questions

    • What are the requirements for an object to be used as a hash key for a given HashMap?
      Given a network thread and set of worker threads, how would you manage the processing of the data?
      How would you make sure that all data has been processed from the network queue?
      How would you make sure while distributing the network load that the threads are not busy?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    It's not always quick and easy to get hired. The job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, which often take place on the phone, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews, and even third interviews.

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.
