Interview Details Do keep in mind that the company reviews on all these sites are posted by individuals, including possibly disgruntled employees. So, use them as a tool to help gather more information about a company, but don't count on them as 100% accurate, because every employee's experience is different.

Research Associate Interview

Research Associate
Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in March 2013.

Interview Details I had applied through the existing employee referral process but got an email for interview more than 2 months later. I had almost lost hope of getting it and the email was very sudden. The interview was scheduled just 2-3 days from the date of the email and no chance of rescheduling. The process was conducted with over 60-70 people giving a common written test with basic aptitude questions for maths and english and your profile details. After the test, they eliminated over half the strength on the basis of profile and written test. Then a single HR person was taking basic interview (non Technical) with profile based questions. Then another lengthy written test with finance questions and basic GK.
That was it for the day, a week later a managerial interview was scheduled. That was also abruptly informed just the night before. This interview was taken by 2 members and went on for an hour. All sorts of technical & Non technical questions were asked. The final Director Round was scheduled for the next day and was also only informed on previous night. Could not appear for that due to previous commitments and the position was filled by another person

Interview Question – The second Written Test had some tough finance questions.(Equits, Debt, Bankruptcy Etc)   Answer Question

Research Associate Interview

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in August 2010.

Interview Details Hiring process is not that easy. It involves 5-6 rounds of interview here a candidate is judged on everything starting from Aptitude to the Attitude towards career progression, and towards the company. Hiring process involves One to One with the HR, followed by two written exams, and then the two rounds of interview with Operations Manager and the Group Director respectively.

Interview Question – Most difficult would be the aptitude test and one more written exam as it has lot of business awareness questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – This was my first job
