    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris +3 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Calypso Technology (Paris) en janvier 2012.

    Entretien

    Le processus n'était pas structuré et assez complexe. J'ai d'abord été contacté par le recruteur qui a organisé un premier entretien par téléphone. L'entrevue a été reporté plusieurs fois et ça a traîné pendant toute la période des vacances. Quand elle a enfin eu lieu, on m'a programmé une rencontre avec le directeur et son propre supérieur hiérarchique pour un entretien en face à face. La réunion, plutôt informelle, incluait en fait le supérieur hiérarchique, le cadre supérieur et un troisième membre du personnel qui n'avait pas de lien direct avec la mission.

    Après l'entretien il n'y a eu aucune réaction, positive ou négative.

    It was an all day thing. You had to do a five minute presentation about yourself and your interest in the company. It was really easy most of the presentations were horrible. Then you had to take a test about basic finance knowledge, no calculations mostly just vocab stuff and explaining general concepts. Anyone with a class or two in economics or finance would have done fine. Then if you are picked after lunch to continue on there are about 3-4 more 1 on 1 interviews.

    Entretien

    I heard about the company at my university career fair, where I handed in my resume. A week later I was contacted through an email notifying me that I was invited for an information session/interview. The interview consisted of a ppt presentation where candidates provided information about their education and why they feel fit for the job. In addition, candidates had to take a test showing their knowledge of financial markets. Questions included: 1) what is the current Dow Jones level? 2) What is the par value of a bond? 3) What does IPO stand for? After the presentation about 5 candidates were given 1:1 interviews.

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 1 jour. J'ai passé un entretien à Calypso Technology en septembre 2009.

    Entretien

    The turnaround time for communication is extremely fast. I applied online using their web-based recruitment system, and was invited for an interview in about 2 days. The lag time between the notification and the actual interview day was about 2 weeks.

    They tend to do full-day interviews, broken down into business applicants (professional services) and technical candidates (IT and computer science). Business applicants had the option to interview on Monday or Wednesday, and technical candidates on Tuesday or Thursday. For business applicants, there were between 13-16 people on each day. There were significantly less IT candidates.

    The early part of the day consisted of an hour long presentation about the company. The group was then divided in half -- one group went to take a skills test, and the other did their presentations. The skills test (for business applicants) consisted of basic finance material, including NPV, time value of money, etc. The presentation was used to describe ourselves and our career goals. The groups switched rooms after each finished their respective tasks.

    After this initial phase, the first cuts were made. Only about 6 people remained to continue on with back-to-back interviews. I completed one-on-one interviews with 5 people, but 2 people were cut during this time as well. We knew if we were being offered a job by the end of the week (Friday).

    Web-based recruitment. Got an offer for interview, with two weeks to prepare a PowerPoint presentation (introduction to yourself) in front of all the applicants. There were two days/groups for this position. Each group had about 13-16 people. I had to take a test about basic finance, and then do a 5 min PowerPoint presentation. After that, there was a first round of cut. I had to meet with about 5 other employees/recruiters for one on one interviews. I was contacted with an job offer after 10 days.

    Entretien

    For morning session, all candidates were required to do a presentation about their education and work experience in front of the interview panel and other candidates. The presentations were followed by a test on basic finance knowledge (with a focus on derivatives). Lunch was provided. For afternoon sessions, there were 2-3 one-on-one interview sessions with manager / associate currently work in the business analyst program.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    Raison du refus

    Most decision factor in declining this offer is that employees and candidates were not very impressive at all. During the presentation, some candidates answered the question of "Why Calypso" by elaborating on how Calypso has great pay and benefit, which is clearly rookie mistake in interviewing and some other candidates can barely speak English. Interviewers did not ask very intelligent questions and have background in non brand name colleague / MBA programs. Office space is very run-down and overall not a high-caliber organization to learn and grow for entry-level candidates.

    Entretien

    Very intensive and extensive. Its a whole long day if you pass the test and presentation. The test is not basic at all, there are 3 sessions - True/False, Multiple choice, and Essay. Study the front-middle-back duties etc, and know all the products they trade. True and False is tricky, learn your financial security concepts, and the essay question is easy just basic finance questions. After lunch, its 4 back to back interviews. They will ask you about your work experience so make sure you know what you did and articulate yourself. COME PREPARED!

    They call college graduates in San Francisco office and ask them to present themselves regarding why they want to work at Calypso and also they what you their profile is. Then they conduct one hour objective test with Java, OOP and few Unix questions. Then they call for one on one interview where four to five people come and talk to you one after other. Most of them ask normal behavioral questions and not technical. Some of them ask about basic java questions like what is Transient used for, how to implement multi-threading, what is the significance of static and final in java ? Then they ask you a puzzle like if you have a linked list with circle in it then how do you detect that ? You can say you use two pointers and one will move faster than other and if you keep them moving then at some point of time they will point to the same node for an instance. They also have different kind of elevator system in the building. They will ask you why it is the way they have designed. You can say that it is more efficient.
