    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at International Fund Services (New York, NY) in June 2009.

    Interview

    The culture is very laidback, hands-on, casual dress every day, they seem like people who will teach you everything and not hold back. The interview process was horrible, however, because all they emphasized was how casual they are and that was it. It was an all-day interview in which one more two people came into the office to interview me. I felt their approach was to see if I had the right hi-five personality and I thought they were overly pushy with that. It made me feel like saying "um...I've only met you for 2 mintues, please back up a little bit." All in all, they appeared to be a nice group of people, but the interview process was more like trying to find the right person for their "high school clique." I ended the interview 2 hours early, because I decided it wasn't for me.

    Fund Administrator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at International Fund Services (Boston, MA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Very easy, met with two of the managers at the same time. The whole interview took 45 minutes to an hour and about an hour of leaving received the job. The interview process was very laid back, the people were friendly and I think the biggest thing they want to know is if you would be a good fit for the team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at International Fund Services (New York, NY) in August 2009.

    I applied on their website. They contacted me and had come in to interview with 4 managers. I was offered the job on the train ride home. They are straightforward and do not waste your time.

    Interview Questions

    • Discussing different products, corporate actions, fee calcs, and investor allocations   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was not able to negotiate. It was take it or leave it, which was extremely disappointing because they brought me in to interview for a NAV I associate, but then offered me the NAV II associate position for the same pay. I felt like it was a bait and switch from the beginning. I took the job though because I though it would be a good learning experience.

    Serior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at International Fund Services (New York, NY) in July 2010.

    Interview

    First I had to provide a code sample. They sent me an assignment and asked me to program the solution and send them the code.

    They asked for this prior to providing a job description or salary range.

    I spent several hours on the sample.

    After they reviewed the code sample, which they said they liked, they scheduled a telephone tech interview. This was conducted with 2 of their programmers. It seemed to go well and I was asked in for an interview.

    I met with the manager who told me immediately that they were also interviewing other candidates. I then met with 3 programmers simultaneously for a time boxed presentation. After that we walked through more code exercises. This all seemed to go smoothly.

    I met with the manager again who answered my questions about the company. Again he mentioned there were other people in the pipeline but they would make a decision soon.

    Two days later I was informed they went with another candidate. There was no feedback other than they were impressed with my technical skills.

    After everything they put me through, they could have at least explained their decision. I could hake taken away something after all the effort they required.

    I guess if they don't have to offer anything, they don;t.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to complete incomplete code samples in front of 3 developers.   1 Answer
