    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through university career services and got an interview invitation pretty soon afterward. It was a 30-minute one-on-one interview with an HR on campus. The interview was all about resume scan and behavioral questions, nothing technical.

    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.
