Product Consultant Interview

Product Consultant
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in April 2014.

Interview Details The first round interview was in the Toronto office, where I had two 30 minute interviews with 2 people in each interview. They were very friendly, and I felt it was more of a discussion than an interview. I then got a second round interview, which was the same format, in that I had another two 30 minute interviews with 4 more people. All these interviews were behavioral, no technical questions.

Interview Question – In all interviews, they asked me to walk myself through my resume. Some other questions were:
- why should we hire you over the other qualified candidates?
- why sales?
- can you do a sales pitch
- what do you do for fun

Research Associate Interview

Research Associate

I applied online - interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in May 2014.

Interview Details there was a written aptitude test which consisted of basic information about yourself, education and questions on logical reasoning, quantitative and english passage.
please time yourself accordingly for the test as it is too lengthy and you would only be given 30 mins to complete it.
also dont stress too much on questions that you're not able to solve as youl lose time.

Interview Question – the unexpected thing was not asking anything specified as per the mail regarding financial terms.   Answer Question

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
