    Analyste de recherche Interview

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I interviewed at FactSet (Paris (France)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    J'ai candidaté pour le poste d'Analyste en Recherche à leur bureau de Fontainebleau en France. On m'a contacté immédiatement et je suis allé au premier entretien avec un cadre supérieur, et j'ai eu des examens écrits après. L'examen consistait en des questions d'informations d'analytique, où on me demandait d'extraire les données numériques à partir de déclarations financière données ou de coupures de journaux. J'ai bien réussi l'examen, et on m'a convié au second entretien, cette fois avec trois cadres. J'ai pu répondre à toutes les questions, donc ça s'est bien passé. A la fin, on m'a dit que j'aurais des nouvelles quel que soit le résultat, donc j'ai attendu plusieurs semaines mais ils ne m'ont jamais recontacté - à ce stade, j'ai perdu foi en l'entreprise et je n'ai pas pris la peine de continuer. J'aurais apprécier qu'ils tiennent leur promesse, puisque j'avais mis quatre heures pour me rendre à l'entreprise pour chaque entretien.

    Interview

    The day started by going out to lunch with two young FactSet Consultants. Following lunch, we returned to the office. We were given a demo of the software and we were then interviewed by four of the FactSet managers. Each manager had their own set of questions. During one of the interviews we were asked to complete a brain teaser quiz.
