    Internal Audit Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Irving, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Alliance Data in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Hiring Manager who asked if I was looking to move to a new company. She set up a phone interview with one of the Audit Managers and then I did an on-site interview with the rest of the group and had lunch afterwords. Overall a good experience, but it just wasn't what I was looking for.

    Business/Marketing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Alliance Data in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very conversational and basic 45 minute phone interview where they asked my qualifications and provided more details about the position. Nothing surprising during the phone conversation but instead making sure that I was serious about the opportunity. Then an in-person interview with group of managers that I would interact with on a daily basis. These questions were geared toward understanding my current daily duties and gaining a better grasp of my resume achievements. Verbal offer came within 5 days of the interview.

    Analytic Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Columbus, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Alliance Data.

    Interview Details

    Applied via LinkedIn. HR phone screen, then 4 hours of Skype interviews. Brought onsite for a few more 1:1 interviews with the same people and a presentation of previous work in front of a small group. Everyone was really nice and personable although the office interior was very gray and a little depressing. Received offer 2 weeks later.

    Interview Questions
    • It wasn't difficult, but this was the first time I'd been asked to present a PowerPoint of a previous project   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Their initial offer was lower than we discussed so there was some back and forth. They only went up a few thousand on base salary but upped bonus percentage and relocation substantially.

    Offer was later pulled after the credit check. They could not look past a 6 year old credit card charge off (I assume because it was with one of their clients).

    IT Contractor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Alliance Data.

    Interview Details

    They like to take you to Starbucks, where it is loud and distracting. My interview was for an IT contractor job, under the Field Sales dept. My manager did no even look at my resume or ask me questions about my recent jobs, duties, or basic "interview" questions. He did ALL the talking, and just explained things that, unless you worked there, you wouldn't have any idea or knowledge of what was going on.

    Everyone knew exactly what they wanted to tell me and what they wanted to ask me. The whole process was extremely efficient and very positive. I felt comfortable with them. This company has it together. They read my resume, understood what I was and how my current skills fit into the job I applied for. They listened and remembered what I had to say. They all really enjoy their jobs and support the company.

    Interview Questions

    They do their homework so the negotiation phase is very clear cut and easy. They were very forthcoming about salary right from the start so I knew what to expect. They utilized the technology they had to make sure I had everything I needed. I am very excited about my new position.
