Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY (US)) in February 2010.

The interview was a little strange. The interviewer did not ask any questions about me. Didn't ask about my school, courses, previous jobs, and projects. The entire interview consisted of two technical question. The first question was to reverse a string, and the second question was to find a loop in a linked list.

    Interview

    Initially had a phone interview which began with an overview of the company and the internship program. Then the interviewer asked some basic technical questions and some behavioral questions.

    About a week and a half after that, I received a positive response and was called in for an on site interview. The on-site began with 3 technical interviews, beginning with a code review. I was given code in c++, which I am not too familiar with because my background is mainly Java/Python, but the interview was more focused on the concepts used than the actual syntax. The second interview was a design interview, and the third was a algorithms/data structures interview.

    Then, another interviewee and I were taken out to lunch by two former interns and then the remaining interview was with one of the senior directors and was more behavioral.

    Overall, everyone I encountered was pleasant and seemed like they really enjoyed working there.

Afterwards, you go out to lunch with some current full-time employees who used to be interns. After that, you are interviewed about your past projects and experiences, and finally, you meet with HR.
