    The super day interview consisted of 4 interviews and then a group project. The office was very quiet and relatively calm. The conservations were meaningful and respectful. The interview questions were targeted more to your background knowledge about the stock market.

    Client Solutions Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    There was a phone screening followed shortly by a hackerrank assessment, and then there was about a month before I heard back. After that I had a video interview in which I had to review some code. Finally an onsite interview with 2 rounds of technical questions and a meeting with a team leader. The interview process was fine, if a bit slow, but my real issue with the company is that at no point during my 3 month interview process did anybody even look at my resume for the specifics of my degree. I got a call saying they wanted to give me an offer, and then another shortly after saying that because of my degree (minor in CS with a major in engineering field) they could not hire me. This oversight led to a huge waste of time and effort on my part, and I presume on theirs as well. Very unprofessional.

    I applied online. I interviewed at FactSet.

    Interview

    I applied on Handshake and had an on campus interview after two weeks of applying. The on campus interview was more behavioral questions, getting to know my personality as I was getting to know the employees of the company. A week later I was invited to go into Boston for the Superday . The Superday was a month later and was from 830-130pm (it sounds like a lot but it's not). I had four interviews and then the rest of the time was meeting with current associates.
