    Interview

    This was a basic on campus behavioral interview for the Global Client Solutions Internship. It was fairly conversational , there were lots of questions about yourself, what you are interested in, and what you are involved in. I was prepared with questions for the interviewer as well and will be going through the second round of interviews soon.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at FactSet in February 2019.

    Interview

    I got a phone Interview within 2 days of applying online. The interviewer called 8 minutes late. The very first question she asked why I have applied for the position, 2nd question was whether I had any location constraints and I answered no. The next question was on work authorization, for which I answered I am on OPT. That's the end of an interview saying that they don't take OPT. Why waste candidates precious job hunting time just because you don't filter properly as per your own needs
    Sincere suggestion to all OPT students applying for Factset. Make sure that they take OPT students for a particular position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (New York, NY (US)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    First round was telephonic. After few days I was called for F2F interview. The first round was technical(focused on problem solving and data structures) , second was with a manager/director(questions related to work, interests etc) and third and last was design round with a US guy.

    By the time interview got over, the HR was not available(probably left for the day) and I was told that the HR will be in touch with me. The HR did not contact me and did not respond to my email which I sent after 2-3 working days. So I waited for another 2-3 days and called the HR and they said that they don't want to proceed further and that they have not selected. I am not sure why they did not inform me if the decision was made and why they wanted to keep me waiting. I was obviously waiting eagerly for the decision, as according to me, I had given my 100%.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FactSet.

    Interview

    I had a first round interview at my school. I was expecting basic questions but I got asked harder ones during the first round I assume because I had an investment banking internship and after speaking about that I was further asked to explain some financial terms. Second round interview is the last interview which is a super day. First, you take an online brain teaser test. The day consisted of a welcome and introduction to FactSet. I was then shown around the office and then had 4 30 minute back to back interviews. One of these interviews also consists of a coding test. They present you with a FactSet code and you have to interpret it, fairly easy. In the last interview with the manager, you have to make a presentation, which you know beforehand so make sure you come in prepared and do the tips they recommend. All interviews were 1 on 1. After the interviews, there was a casual lunch with 2 workers. The interviewers were very engaging and really wanted to get to know me and allowed me to ask any questions I had. Definitely, know how to talk about yourself and your past experiences and why you want this job.
