    I applied online – interviewed at S&P Capital IQ in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    there was a written aptitude test which consisted of basic information about yourself, education and questions on logical reasoning, quantitative and english passage.
    please time yourself accordingly for the test as it is too lengthy and you would only be given 30 mins to complete it.
    also dont stress too much on questions that you're not able to solve as youl lose time.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at S&P Capital IQ.

    Interview Details

    Applied through campus hiring process. The first step was the aptitude test which was too easy but they eliminated people on the basis of statement of purpose that was another hidden section in the information about the employee.

    The next step was the hr interview which was nothing but confidence testing round lasting for 3-5 minutes.

    The third stage is the technical test where purely finance and logical questions are asked.

    The fourth one is the final managers interview where the person is just tested on his convincing skill to do a boring job. Prepare for that.
