    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Pleasant. On campus Interview. On campus interview consisted of a basic aptitude screening test. The people short listed have been called for a final wound interview which contained a presentation and a HR together at their office venue. In the final round, we were asked to present on any incident where we displayed our leadership skills. They would be drilling you between Managing and Leadership. I gave a simple presentation on some past incident which "I" felt have displayed some amount of leadership skills. But according to them it was pure Management and absence of Leadership qualities. Later on, they questioned what kind of role you were actually in search off. Based on the answer provided, they would question you again only for the sake of taking an interview.
