Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MFS (Boston, MA) in March 2008.

Interview

I interviewed for a hot job, so they moved pretty quick. But I had to go through a total of 9 interviews, including one phone screen and a feedback session. I met a total of 8 people-- 1 HR rep, Hiring Manager, Sr.Manager - Vice President, CIO - Senior Vice President,two other Business Systems Analyst Managers, One Vice President from Investment Operations and One team member/Senior Business Systems Analyst. Interview process was very well planned and thorough, everybody read my resume and was well prepared with questions.

Interview Questions

  • I would say, I was asked three very unexpected questions : A Business Systems Analyst Manager asked me 1) to calculate variation margin on a futures position   1 Answer
  • 2) Difference between Floating rate and a Variable rate ( This question and the answer from him did not make sense to me)   2 Answers
  • Another surprise was from CIO - The very first question from him was "what is so tough about fixed income?". I was not expecting such a question from a Senior Vice President.   1 Answer

Negotiation

I did not negotiate much
