    Application

    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.

    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.

    The day started by going out to lunch with two young FactSet Consultants. Following lunch, we returned to the office.

During one of the interviews we were asked to complete a brain teaser quiz.

    Neutral Experience
    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.
