Relationship Specialist-REO Interview

Relationship Specialist-REO
Coppell, TX

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Altisource.

Interview Details – First contacted by recruiter on the phone, second phone interview with hiring manager, set-up 3rd interview with on-site Team Lead along with phone conference with VP, then an additional phone interview with SVP since this person was unavailable twice for a phone. conference. I was contacted 2-3 weeks later (really!?) saying they wanted to make an offer, but never heard back after that! Extremely daunting, long drawn out process, that left me with a bad taste in my mouth about this company. Completely unorganized & unprofessional. If that offer ever did come in I would not take it. I was able to be contacted, interview, and accept a job offer while I was waiting for this company to give me any kind of feedback. I don't see myself working for such an unprofessional company. No thanks!

Human Resources Interview

Human Resources
Atlanta, GA

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Altisource in March 2014.

Interview Details – Was recruited via LinkedIn and conducted a Phone Interview. The recruiter stated that he was going to call me back to set up a time to speak with the Manager and also send me an assessment to complete. Received the email and completed the assessment, but never heard back from recruiter. I sent 2 emails to the recruiter and never heard back from him. I'm a recruiter as well and I never fail to return a candidates call or email. Left me with a negative impression of their customer service.

Administrative Interview

Administrative

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Altisource in January 2014.

Interview Details – Strange process. Emphasis placed on wonderlic test and personality test. Hard to get a feel for the job and to have a good open conversation about my skills as the questions are strictly based from personality test. I walked out thinking this person doesn't really know my skills or abilities.

Interview Question – Off the wall question at the end about weights? Just random. The point is to show how you arrive at the answer.   Answer Question

Senior Product Manager Interview

Senior Product Manager
Boston, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Altisource in September 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring process started with an initial phone screen going over the basics, walkthrough of resume, some product management questions, and then an invite to the office for an in person interview.
The in-person interview starts with the Wonderlic Test. Google it if you don't know what it is. But basically it's an 8th grade level verbal and math comprehension test. If you can read and do basic math you're fine.
Then three people come in and they will explain there are three parts to the interview:
1. A walkthrough of your resume
2. A set of standard questions they will ask you
3. A puzzle quiz to determine your thought process and problem solving skills.

For the walk through they seemed more interested in what wasn't on the resume as if they were trying to catch me in a lie or I determine that I was trying to hide something. With almost 20 years of experience listing early jobs unrelated to the current position seems irrelevant and would only serve to create a very long resume but that seemed to be the focus. So be prepared to defend every word on your resume.

Then you'll move onto the next part. The questions they'll ask are:
1. Tell us about a time you had to implement a corporate initiative that wasn't aligned with your departmental goals. What did you do, what was the outcome.
2. Tell us about a time you had to build a relationship with someone. What did you do, what was the outcome.
3. At some point we are all given ambiguous directions or instructions. Tell us about a time you were given ambiguous directions or instructions. What did you do, what was the outcome.
4. Tell us about your greatest success.
5. Tell us about your greatest failure.

The final part of the interview is a puzzle. The question I was asked was; "There are 8 balls, one of which is slightly lighter than the others. You have a balance, how do you find the lighter ball?" The answer is to weigh three balls on each side first. If they balance then you weigh the two you didn't initially weigh. If they don't balance they you weigh two from the side that was lighter. You can get to the answer weighing only twice.

They will help out with suggestions if you really get stuck but my advice is to just keep trying to work through it and keep trying different options and don't give up on whatever quiz they give you. Also Google quiz interview questions or get a book with those questions. My guess is that they will choose one that has a definitive answer, not like 'how many phone booths are there in New York' because they'll want you to get to one right answer. But I could be wrong.

Quantitative Analyst Interview

Quantitative Analyst
Winston-Salem, NC

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Altisource in March 2013.

Interview Details – Phone interviewed by an Indian guy and a Chinese lady. Inperson interview came about 3 weeks later. The group consists of 3 Chinese and 3 Indians and the leader of the group was an Indian with a heavy accent. Had a hard time understanding what he was saying. The interview questions were most behavioral, but some of them were annoying, such as "describe your biggest failure". Not a nice interview experience overall.

Interview Question – Nothing really   Answer Question
