Senior Accountant Interview

Senior Accountant

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at First Data.

Interview Details – I was contact by the recruiter to schedule an interview and a few days later I ended up interviewing with one of their directors. He was cool and overall the questions weren't anything out of the ordinary... I also had to speak with him and his supervisor over a conference call but still as long as you do your research about the company and have 2 or 3 stories to tell about a time when you faced adversity.

Interview Question – Tell me what you know about the company.   Answer Question
