    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (London, England) in November 2015.

    Interview

    1) Online application, included four screening questions and uploading your CV through their recruitment portal
    2) Online numerical and financial tests, numerical test was very simple, basic grasp of maths is fine. Financial test was a little harder for those without a financial background, research required prior to taking this test.
    3) HR video interview. Interviewer was interested in what I had to say, encouraging.
    4) Assessment Centre - Group Presentation, Universal Demo, Excel Test, Micro Teach.
