    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Initially had a phone interview which began with an overview of the company and the internship program. Then the interviewer asked some basic technical questions and some behavioral questions.

    About a week and a half after that, I received a positive response and was called in for an on site interview. The on-site began with 3 technical interviews, beginning with a code review. I was given code in c++, which I am not too familiar with because my background is mainly Java/Python, but the interview was more focused on the concepts used than the actual syntax. The second interview was a design interview, and the third was a algorithms/data structures interview.

    Then, another interviewee and I were taken out to lunch by two former interns and then the remaining interview was with one of the senior directors and was more behavioral.

    Overall, everyone I encountered was pleasant and seemed like they really enjoyed working there.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet.

    Interview

    I applied online after going to a job fair and received an e-mail saying I would be contacted for a over the phone technical interview. During the phone interview, I was asked a few simple OO questions and was told I would be contacted about an in-person interview later. I never received any information and when I contacted them again I was told they'd be looking for other candidates.

    Interview

    Had phone interview first to get the "fit" questions out of the way. Next was brought into the Headquarters to meet and interview with 5 different people. The interviews weren't hard but definitely come prepared to know something about the company, finance, the markets, and ASK THEM QUESTIONS.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    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.
