    Ich habe mich online beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im September 2017 bei FactSet (London, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Applied online at the end of August, answering some standard application questions (why do you want to work at FactSet etc.) Following this there is a 3 step process.

    Video Interview: You're sent an email explaining how to set the whole thing up. The interview itself was fine, the interviewer was very friendly and helped make it comfortable. Interview was half personal/CV questions and half slightly more technical ones. Every question she asked had been mentioned in previous reviews, so look over them.

    A few days after that I was informed I was successful and was invited to an assessment centre the following week. That's split up into 4 separate tests:
    First there was a test on the FactSet platform, we were shown a 20 minute video tutorial one how to use some basic functionality of it and then were given a 10 minute test afterwards. Fairly straightforward as long as you pay attention to the video and read the questions carefully.
    Straight after that is an Excel test. Also fairly simple, but brush up on some slightly more difficult concepts such as sorting and vlookup.
    Following that we were split into groups and asked to do a group exercise. We were given 20 minutes to sort some tasks in order of priority, be sure to consider the consequences for clients and whether the tasks are "proactive" or "reactive".
    After that came the MicroTeach, possibly one of the more important tests of the day. You basically have to teach a topic of your choice for 10 minutes. They'll give you a brief beforehand with a few more details. The best advice I would give is make it a topic you can be enthusiastic about, some of the unsuccessful candidates I saw chose topics that were fairly nondescript (paper planes, origami) and so their presentations came across as a little more boring.

    After that you're given lunch for an hour or so, and then they'll come in and tell you who the successful candidates were, these candidates then have a final interview the same day.

    My interview was similar to many others, a lot of questions about my CV and motivations. And then some questions about the company (products, recent acquisitions). I didn't get an offer following this, my guess is because I didn't do a financial degree and so lacked some of the knowledge and experience that other candidates had.

    Video interview: You'll be sent a link through your email explaining how to set it up. Very simple to do so. You're able to use either your phone or laptop but I would suggest using your laptop. When you are logged on and ready, someone will join the conversation/meeting. The interviewer will just introduce themselves and start the interview. The interview felt comfortable and friendly.

    1. Applied in October 2016 with CV, covering letter,and some open questions.

    2. Was informed they arrange the online tests only after the application closing date, which was 28th Feb 2017. Tests assigned in early March, including a 30-min math test and a 30-min finance test. Both to be completed within 3 days and are quite easy if you're from a finance background. The emails says you will hear back within 5 days but I was informed after a month.

    3. A month later was informed that I passed the OT and got invited to a 30-min live video interview. The interview was structured as below:
    1) CV-related: what responsibilities for each role of your work experience; why did you choose this university subject; why are you interested in technology
    2) Motivation: what's your understanding of consulting at factset? What consultants do on a daily basis? Who are clients? Who are competitors? What differ factset from its competitors?
    3) Technical: Factset has mainly 3 teams: IB,IM and FX. What are their differences and how can Factset help clients in IB, IM and FX? What services an investment banker in M&A will look for?
    The interviewer was really professional, nice and friendly. At the end of the interview,she said she'd send the outcome email in the afternoon, really efficient compared with the previous stages. About 4-5 hours later got the email inviting me to the AC exactly one week later.

    4. AC (half-day) 10 candidates (2 goups)
    The AC consists of 4 parts: Factset test, Excel test, Group discussion and Micro teach. Due to the network problem we started quite late so didn't have time for the networking session. After 20 min introduction video we were asked to complete a series of instructions and save the screen within a time limit (can't remember the exact time); then the excel tests to be completed within 20 min. I didn't do well in this part as the laptop stuck for a moment then I missed the last few seconds in the intro video, so definitely concentrate on the video! The excel was okay as an average user.
    Group discussion is prioritising a pile of tasks, including what tasks are not to be done today. Focus on clients and think about the potential consequences. Last part was the micro teach, which was the most interesting part I think. Don't choose a topic that consumes too much time, otherwise you can't finish it within 10 min. Practice the presentation beforehand and think about whether your audience can follow you. I messed up on this part, but I really enjoyed other people's teaching.

    Overall my experience was positive. Factset is a professional company with very good culture and people. The assessors are current consultants and managers, and they are very patient in answering any questions. Drinks and refreshments were provided.

    After the AC there will be a final round interview with managers. As I didn't do well in the AC I probably would give another try next year. The process was quite efficient after the closing date.
