    Fund Accountant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I reached out to a recruiter on Friday and submitted my application the following Monday, I had a phone screen on Tuesday, an in-person interview on Thursday and received an offer the following Tuesday. Overall, the process was very quick, took less than two weeks.

    The in-person interview was different. It was a round robin format. It was set up in a way where there were 4 tables in each corner of the room, with either 1 or 2 teams at a table, and I was 1 of 3 candidates being interviewed. The interview was pretty laidback, talked to each group for about 20 minutes and then moved onto the next one. While it did focus on my experiences and resume, it was more conversational than anything.

    Overall, the interview and process quick, easy, and pretty laid-back.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ancient Oaks, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Ancient Oaks, PA).

    Interview

    The interview process was very long and they did not stay in contact throughout the process. The interviews themselves were simple and the interviewers were kind and really nice. My HR contact was also nice and tried to respond on time but there was a huge communication gap. They also took a long time to make the decision and that was a struggle when there were other companies involved because the timeline was ambiguous.

    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a short phone screening from HR about 2 weeks later. The next week I was on-site for 3 hours of 1 on 1 interviews with different members of the department. The next day I received a follow-up from the HR rep to schedule a 2nd interview and was back on site the next week for about 90 minutes. Received a phone call with a decision the next day.
    After I accepted the offer the background screening process was more intense than I was used to. SEI uses a 3rd party for normal criminal background, but also fingerprinting and an employment verification from last 3 employers. If they can't get a hold of anyone you have to provide W2s, which I had to provide when a staffing company wouldn't verify my employment.
