Research Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee in Norwalk, CT (US)
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT (US)) in August 2010.

Interview

I interviewed in the NY office then a video conference with the team. The initial interview (with HR) was painless. I had a 1v1 and panel interview (video conference) which were relatively easy; the majority of questions were behavioral. None of the questions tested my technical knowledge.

It took about 3 weeks to hear back from the team with the result, which really wasn't optimal.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at FactSet (Norwalk, CT (US)) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Very general interview with a few of the members of the group. Mostly they are looking that you are able to communicate well, able to adapt to different technologies, and are willing to learn a variety of skills that you did not have before. Factset speaks a different language and while you would not be expected to know any of it you should show evidence that you have some tech skills and or financial know how.

    Interview Questions

    • Why I thought I would be a good fit for the position and whether I felt comfortable with technology.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at FactSet (Youngstown, OH (US)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I got called for an interview and came in the following week. Two people asked questions, while I sat across a table in a conference room and they wrote down everything I said. Don't wear high heels to an interview here. To get to the conference room, you have to walk through all of the current employees working in an extremely quiet office, on wood floors. Everyone looks up and stares at you. It's very awkward.
