    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FactSet.

    Interview

    About 45 minutes interview, all of the questions about a piece of code. I need to debug the code. The most challenge part is that all the bugs can not show in the result. If you run the code, the result is fine and no bugs reported. You need to find the bug with the result and the description beyond each method. I do not think it's a good way in interview if you test some details in code with a time limit. But, anyway, if you are a good programmer, you should handle all cases.

    Client Solutions Specialist Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn about the position and scheduling a phone call for the next day. The phone call was very basic preliminary phone screening - "tell me about yourself", "why are you interested", etc. and learning more about the position. During this phone call my recruiter invited to the Superday for the next day.

    I had 1 on 1 interviews with 3 different team members which were mostly behavioral and resume based with a few "technical" questions relating to my past work experience.

    After the Superday I thought I was done but two days later I was contacted by my recruiter asking me to come back in to meet with the 2 hiring managers I didn't have the chance to meet during the superday. Both interviews were mostly casual and conversational and mostly gave me the opportunity to ask any questions I had for them.

    I was contacted the next day with my offer.
