    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY (US)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    It started with a phone call assessment and inviting me for an examination. The exam was pretty easy and everything went well. After 30 mins the Hr representative told me to wait for about an hour. Then I was surprised that I will have my initial interview with the HR representative. Right after the interview she told me that I've passed the HR interview and she even told me that I need to study some important points about the company and the position I'm applying for. After the interview she's inviting me for a panel interview (3days after) and it is composed of 3 panels (2foreigner and 1 Filipina).

    Honestly, I studied those important points I was asked by the HR to study. But during the interview (panel) I started to get pressured and I can't even focused which I think the reason why I failed. A week after the panel interview I didn't heard anything from the HR that's why I decided to contact them thru email and sadly I got a bad news but the experience I had with them is unforgettable.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FactSet in November 2017.

    Interview

    Everyone at FactSet was friendly and professional. Algorithms and object-oriented design questions weren't challenging.

    Only issue is that they didn't give me a choice when choosing a language. They made me answer questions and interview in C++ even though I don't list C++ on my resume and told them repeatedly I don't know the language.
