    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hyderābād
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at FactSet in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    This position was for their "FactSet Fundamentals Technical Operations” department. I received a walk-in interview mail from Naukri.com. I had an experience of 2.3 years when I received this.
    Interview process:
    Around 50 people attended the walk-in for this position on that day. While most of them were from a B.Sc degree background, few of them were a engineering graduate. The first round was a technical written test. The question paper had 10 questions, 7 of them are choose the correct answers and 3 were to write programs.

    The questions were quite simple and basic but to answer them you need to remember basic syntax of available functions in the language and the tool - QTP.

    I was confident that I would clear the written test, but after 2 days I received a mail saying that I was not selected.
