Bewerbung

Ich habe mich online beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im März 2016 bei FactSet.

Vorstellungsgespräch

I interviewed at FactSet (London) in March 2016.

First step: Applied online (CV, cover letter)
A few weeks later, email to schedule a phone interview.

Second step: A phone interview with two engineers (that were nice and understanding). First, I had general questions (What Factset does? Why Factset? Why software engineer? Front end or back end? Which language do I prefer?). Then, I had technical questions (basic, OOP and data structures (Hash table, array, list)). Then, I had to speak about a recent project (see below for the questions). Ended with the opportunity to ask questions.
The interview lasted a bit more than 1 hour.

I will have a face-to-face interview in London in a few days.

Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

  • Could you describe a recent project? What did you do? What were the technical difficulties? How did you overcome them?   Frage beantworten
  • What are the key concepts of OOP? Could you define them? What's the difference between override and overload?   Frage beantworten
  • What's the difference between passing by reference and by value?   Frage beantworten
  • Difference between array, list and vector. Some complexity question (research, adding new elements ...)   Frage beantworten

    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.

    The interviewer were quiet nice. They made every effort to make me feel confident. Generally questions were about OOP concepts, data structures and algorithms and why FactSet. Also, they asked to describe one of the projects I have been involved in and my personal contribution to that project.
