    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I dealt with Annie out of Norwalk and she was phenomenal! She was straight forward from the start and ultimately treated me like she was a friend of mine, not stranger. There were a lot more interviews than expected (about 7). But ever I dealt with was very pleasant and the overall experience was great.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had a longer process due to individual circumstances. I interviewed with multiple offices but all interviews were generally laid back and conversational. Be sure to be able to answer why you want to work with factset and demonstrate you have a clear understanding of what a consultant or whatever the role you're applying for does and operates with regard to clients. Questions are all behavioral so remember STAR and you'll be good. Be yourself and be passionate and it will show in your interviews.

    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.

    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.

    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.
