Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FactSet.

Interview

Introduction and technical questions about resume and complete an algorithm problem. The interviewer is a frontend engineer and asked questions mostly about that part. Did not finish the algorithm problem because time left for coding part was somewhat limited.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet in November 2017.

    Interview

    Everyone at FactSet was friendly and professional. Algorithms and object-oriented design questions weren't challenging.

    Only issue is that they didn't give me a choice when choosing a language. They made me answer questions and interview in C++ even though I don't list C++ on my resume and told them repeatedly I don't know the language.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT).

    Interview

    Process consists of an initial 30 minute technical phone interview. I was asked about my experience, then some simple technical questions (explain what hash map is and how it works, describe a function to reverse a string, what is the difference between a scripting and a compiled language).

    Next, I was flown to their Norwalk HQ for a round of onsite interviews. The hotel was comfortable and FactSet provided transportation to and from the airport. The onsite consisted of 5 rounds of interviews. There was a debugging round in which I had to find errors in a linked list implementation, an algorithms/data structures round consisting of simple string manipulation, an OOP round where I had to model a parking garage using OOP principles, a fit round where I had to talk to a Director about my background (how did you become interested in software), and finally a talk with the recruiter where we discussed logistics.

    The recruiter was always extremely slow to respond (sometimes took weeks to email back), but otherwise the interview experience was very nice overall. The entire process from phone screen to offer took just over a month.

    The whole process went on 45 minutes. However, unlike the other interview, it took like 43 minutes to ask me details about projects on my resume. And only 2 minutes for me to resolve a programming question.
