    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I had to speak to two different HR reps because of confusion on their end, but after everything got squared away, they were determined to find me a position and set me up with interviews in three different departments. This was only because they kept saying they wanted me at the company, but because my wife worked in the department they wanted me in, I had to interview and apply for positions that neither they nor I was positive I was qualified for. This was frustrating because instead of making sure I was just not on her team, I could not even be in the department. My interviews went well with different styles in each one. The first two departments had two interviewers, one after the other, asking basically the same questions and both departments said that their boss wished to be there but was too busy to make it. The third department had a group interview with three people of seniority in the position I would be going into, one of whom I would be replacing, and their boss.

    Interview Questions

    • For the most part, all of the questions were standard, but the most unexpected question was asking me to compare and contrast qualitative and quantitative thinking, and which I thought was best for the position I was interviewing for.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I got accepted into graduate school about three days before I received a call from them and did not feel right training and working for four months before departing.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laid back but interviewed with 4 supervisors at a time, which seemed rather overwhelming. It was sort of an open discussion and went very smoothly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    They contacted me via e-mail and asked me to come for an interview day. The day consists of 1 on 1 interviews that are 20 minutes long, and you rotate through about 4 people. It's very easy because they all basically ask you the same questions, and they're very nice. All background/interest in the job questions. Everyone was very nice
