    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SunGard Trading and Risk Systems.

    Interview

    Recruiter called, was very friendly, and advanced me to second round. Scheduled interview in office, but would not "confirm." Drove to city the day of "interview," called recruiter, was told there would be no interview. Attempted to schedule on-site interviews, and got to the point where recruiter would stop answering the phone and would only email back. Eventually, communication stopped, with no explanation of what was going on in the office and no access/information to people in the office itself beyond the recruiter. Highly negative experience.

    The process took a week. I interviewed at SunGard Trading and Risk Systems (Lombard, IL) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Initially I applied to the internship via my College Career Services. I was called and briefly asked what I knew about Sungard and some behavioral questions. I was then called by my boss that I ended up working directly for and she told me about what I would be doing for the summer. Then I actually went into the office and met with an HR woman who then hired me. Mostly behavioral questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SunGard Trading and Risk Systems (London, England (UK)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Telephone interview followed by assessment centre. Nothing particularly unusual and the interviews were always looking to help you get hired rather than testing you brutally. As long as you could show that you were interested in the company, a logical thinker and also keen to learn, they were not too hung up on wrong answers/conclusions to questions.

    • General competency questions during the phone interview and then some probability and other maths questions at the assessment. Also asked to give a presentation on a technical subject and asked to do a mathematical problem-solving exercise.   Answer Question
