    Systems Analyst - Finance Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Perkins Eastman (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The process lasted about 3 months from the phone interview, to the in person and the second round. At first it went pretty well, the issue is that other people who have no idea what the role entails get involved in the interview process and it throws you off your mojo. We are professionals, please review candidates resumes before meeting them.

    3 months is way too long!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Perkins Eastman (Boston, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty typical and straightforward. Was done through an online video chat rather than in person. Their video did not work so I was unable to see who was interviewing me. The two interviewers spent a lot of time on the interview and really wanted to know about who I was and my previous work, which was a plus.

    Interview Questions

    • Very typical questions, explain through your portfolio, show some previous work, why do you want to work with us, what's your previous experience, etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Perkins Eastman (Stamford, CT) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was set up by a former colleague who was hired by Perkins Eastman several months prior. He reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in interviewing for a position they were trying to fill. I accepted and was given a tour of the firm before the interview even began. The interview itself seemed more explanatory than anything else and they were quick to verbally offer the position to me.
