    Analytic Consultant Interview

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

    I applied 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).

    Business/Marketing Analyst Interview

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

    I applied 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 days - interviewed at Alliance Data.

    Interview Details

    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
    • Most questions were pretty standard and all related to the job I applied for. They are very thorough so bring your A-game. This is a large company. There is a lot to learn. Do you homework before you go in. It really helps out.   View Answer

    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.

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

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Alliance Data in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview, followed by four hour onsite interview.

    Interview Questions
    • None. Fairly standard discussion regarding background and experiences.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Interview process was extremely unprofessional.
    -The HR Recruiter did not meet any commitments regarding follow-up or providing promised information.
    -The HR Recruiter did not show for the onsite portion of interview, causing the interview time with the Hiring Manager to start late while I sat in reception.
    -An interviewer did not show without any explanation or warning, requiring the prior interviewer to find a place for me until the next interviewer on the agenda.
    -No follow up within the committed time frame.

    While the Hiring Manager and area Director seemed to be skilled and to offer virtue, the area had huge expectations placed on it by senior leadership without much of a roadmap or strategy in place.
