    Difficult Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at International Fund Services (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Got the interview through an employee referral for a position I wasn't to clear on. Had one interview and then was unexpectedly told to go to another location about a block away, where it didn't appear if they were even expecting me. The women I then interview with there was pretty nasty, and asked some hard questions.

    Operations Specialist Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at International Fund Services (New York, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online on a Tuesday, got a call on Wednesday. She went through my resume top to bottom and asked me why I was applying for this position and basic behavioral questions. We then set up to meet for a face-to-face on the following Monday. Showed up to their NY office and low and behold, the entire office was full of college aged looking kids wearing jeans and polo shirts. Felt awkward because I was in a full suit. She sits me down, asks me more behavioral questions like ...how I would handle a difficult situation, what my favorite class was in college, etc. Then, I was told to sit in a room and have 1 on 1 interviews with the team members I would be working with. Met with 3 different guys, mostly social/behavioral stuff with very few technical questions. They were friendly. It's been a week and I haven't heard back after sending a thank you email to the hiring manager and the squad leader.

    Fund Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    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.
