    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Old Mutual.

    Interview

    Called me up to come to HQ were we did face to face interview and then went through pro metric tests. Initial interview included a panel of about 5 I.T managers and 1 HR person.
    Most technical questions were asked by the managers and the scenario questions mostly asked by HR. It was a fairly average interview which needed some preparation.
    It took the whole day to do the interviews including the tests we had to write.

    Internal Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    My initial interactions with HR were so negative that I decided not to submit my application. The recruiter I spoke with over the phone was incredibly rude and unpleasant. I read many reviews indicating that their corporate culture is not what they portray publicly. A positive work environment is a significant priority for me and this was a HUGE red flag for me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Old Mutual (London, England (UK)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process ran extremely smoothly and lasted from 11am until around 3:30pm if i remember correctly. This was including lunch and a break. There was a short technical assessment in the form of a reading comprehension test, where mistakes were to be found in a document. Both interviews were turned out to be quite informal, one was a general fit interview and the other more technical, led by employees of the department where I would be working. I was left with the impression that the recruiters took their time to read my CV and ask relevant questions. These interviews were then followed by a group exercise.

    CV/Cover letter. A modelling test was given to candidates on arrival. This was followed by an interview with one hr personnel. Finally candidates had interviews with the hiring managers of the related asset class. The whole process was over in just under three hours. Relatively straightforward though it is important for one to have some excel modelling skills to pass the first part of the exercise.
