    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FactSet (Tagui (Philippines)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was emailed after 3 -4 days to invite for an exam and interview. The Exam has two parts 1) Excel - formulas and 2) Written - more on reading comprehension. (?) After the exam is the initial interview, just basic questions like expectations of the job etc. Then they will just inform you if you are qualified for the technical interview. I was invited to have the T.I. after a week I think. There are 3 team leaders that will interview you. Most questions are to test your knowledge. After that is the final interview which you will face the manager. But as for my experience, I was interviewed by the assistant manager. It's more like getting to know you and after that he said that they will inform me if I passed because they're still scanning the other applicants. but unfortunately I didn't receive any calls or email whether I passed or not.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FactSet.

    Interview

    There will be a written and excel-based exam about finance and paraphrasing paragraphs of the said topic. Your time would be eaten because both exams took 2 hours. Then, the HR staff will interview you and you will be asked to come back in the afternoon for the interview with the Team Leaders. Yes, Team leaders. It is a panel interview with the Team Leaders. You must be well-versed with the finance industry to pass which I think I lack. The downside with this company is that they select candidates that is basically not related with the job and expect them to be actually knowledgeable already. And here I thought there would be training in order to equip you.
