    Scrum Master Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    The interview process was long (probably longest I ever attended) - 3 HR interviews, 1 Phone and 4 people (in person) interviewed me.Everything was positive. HR promised to get back in 2 weeks. But there was absolutely no response. Don't know why they waste others time calling for interview and going into silence.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through an employee referral and had a phone interview. I had four interviews since then for three positions. Two for one position and one for each of the other. I got a tour of the campus and its so beautiful! Everyone from HR to the managers and supervisors interviewing me were great. I am still waiting to hear back on whether or not they want to bring me on to the team.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through my University's website, had an on campus interview with an HR person, and was invited to interview at SEI's headquarters. I interviewed with two people, and then a one on one interview with a supervisor. Overall, the interview was not bad and most of the questions were about my resume. The interviewers could have been more enthusiastic.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Met with 3 teams in the accounting dept, very nice and straightforward people. Made SEI seem like a very good company to work for. One of the cons is that it was a long process and a lot of repeated questions over 2.5 hours.

    It is a very easy and laid back interview process! I had a phone screening at first and then an in person interview a couple weeks later. The communication with HR can be difficult.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SEI Investments.

    Interview

    First round interview at college/university, and second round at SEI office. Interviews were not too difficult. Interviewer was friendly, and mainly wanted to understand why you are interested in the company. In addition, they want to give you a brief overview of the company and the position. They seem to have a cool campus in Oaks, and they describe it as very similar to Google. Great company, and overall great experience.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SEI Investments (Oaks, PA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Very casual but professional atmosphere. I met with an Art Director, the Digital & Creative VP and my HR contact. Presented a variety of pieces on my laptop and brought plenty of print samples, I felt very prepared for the interview and had a large scope of work to showcase my skill set. Interview went smooth and seemed like we were in sync. After the interview HR followed up for my reference contacts, they followed up saying they were having trouble connecting with one and wanted to touch base with me, I confirmed a time but no phone call or email. No response, no follow-up or confirmation, I've heard nothing back from HR.

    Overall the interview process was smooth but the lack of respect to follow-up with candidates is very disappointing.
