    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FactSet.

    Interview

    The day started by going out to lunch with two young FactSet Consultants. Following lunch, we returned to the office. We were given a demo of the software and we were then interviewed by four of the FactSet managers. Each manager had their own set of questions. During one of the interviews we were asked to complete a brain teaser quiz.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at FactSet in July 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview discussing yourself and series of questions about experiences. The interviewer was nice but simply asked questions and then moved on. Seemed to brush off some answers and just reading a series of predetermined questions and write what I said. I felt like I had to rant to get out what I wanted to say because there was no follow up questions.

    The questions were relevant, as well as, fairly standard for the position. Nothing out of the ordinary was asked based on the type of company and the position.

    Replied with an email about a week later stating the result of whether or not you move forward.

    Standard Interview process but the terms of service for their job were onerous. Their application included the following Language

    I hereby authorize any former employers or any other persons given as references (unless otherwise noted) to answer any questions that may be asked."

    Pretty straightforward. Get a demo of the factset software from a consultant and then proceed to go through 4 interviews (about 30 mins each) with 4 different managers. Nice people and ask mainly behavioral questions or asked you to talk them through your resume.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Youngstown, OH).

    Interview

    Basic process overall. Simple phone screening and then an in-person interview. The in-person interview was with two managers of the Youngstown office. There were not any questions meant to throw you off... it was fairly standard and relaxed. Got a call about a week later with an offer. They want you to sign the contract ASAP. Ask for you to give a verbal commitment on the phone and then sign within a day.
