    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Automatically redirected me to a rejection message mid-application, supposedly based on my answers to the screener questions provided.

    Said screener questions were 1) Why do you want to work for FactSet, 2) Tells us about personal/outside projects, and 3) Tell us about your university major project.

    I gave fairly comprehensive answers for all three, yet apparently they didn't meet whatever keyword/word count criteria the algorithm was using. Either way, an awful way to treat a potential candidate.

    I got the phone interview for an hour. The questions can be found on glassdoor in detail, and it can be estimated that basically they did not change them during the past year. Got the opportunity to take the face to face interview. May update it later.

    I applied for a grad job at Factset and was invited for a 1 hr interview. The interview was very technical, they started off with a background knowledge of FactSet then moved onto by project history. I was meant to give an explanation of a project I worked on and why it was difficult. The other questions were on object-oriented programming and data structures

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • Explain the concepts of object oriented programming and their importance   Frage beantworten

    Bewerbung

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

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Online application, phone screen and final onsite face-to-face interview.

    Phonescreen relatively straightforward, a bit about your past experience/projects and easy technical questions such as Big O complexity for LinkedList and Recursion.

    Face-to-face interview was in three stages, first stage was an introduction to the application (very poor and unorganised presentation). Second stage is the "technical interview", not very pleasant as it felt as if they were trying to catch you out with technical questions. Third interview is with your potential manager and HR, very easy and straightforward.
