I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week – interviewed at Equifax (Atlanta, GA).
Simplified process with basic interview questions. All single person interviews so very repetitive of content and questions.
- Where do you want to be with position 1 Answer
Recruiter did not pass any of my requests on to the hiring manager but stated they were. Said all requests were non-negotiable (days of leave, start date) based on company policy. Learned from Manager they could have been.

Then I was forwarded to interview with hiring manager. It was a very pleasant interview. Basic behavioral and future career goal questions asked. It took about a month for me notified that I was offered the position

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Equifax (Atlanta, GA) in April 2012.
The interview process was rather disorganized and poorly scheduled. The managers with whom I met spent very little time with me. There was an agenda, but one senior manager arrived some 25 minutes late and didn't spend much time. It really wasn't much of an interview and I asked most of the questions.
- There weren't any difficult questions asked of me and nothing unexpected. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Equifax (Atlanta, GA) in March 2012.

It was pretty simple, you are able to negotiate your salary. I was able to get close to what I wanted so I wouldn't complain.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks – interviewed at Equifax (Atlanta, GA) in December 2009.
The recruiters are very unorganized. They were typically slow to respond to voice mails or emails, often taking more than a day or two to respond. Often they would not have their facts straight or understand requirements for offer acceptance. The most aggravating part was the recruiters not getting my offer to me when they said I'd have it. My schedule at the time was lining up for the offer acceptance, but they delayed the offer by 3 weeks, constantly telling me it was "in the mail."
- Why are you looking for a new job Answer Question
Negotiation was entirely possible and I was successful in getting a good deal. Don't accept the first offer.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Equifax (Atlanta, GA) in June 2009.
