    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Alliance Data.

    Interview Details

    Most people who are hired here know someone. This is true for me. I sent the person I know an email. I then applied online, received a phone call about a month later. Training was for an entire month. The interview was standard, very standard questions, done by the actual supervisor in their cubical or a common area.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked "If you could be any person, fictional or real, who would it be and why". They want to see how you think.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    We didn't really negotiate, I just took what I was given. Corporate and business needs dictate what they can offer.

    Analytic Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    • 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+ weeksinterviewed 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 through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Alliance Data in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called for an interview 1 month after applying. The interview was 3 hours with the HR recruiter, the team with the opening, the hiring manager and another manager with an opening. All separate interviews. Many questions were repetitive and I was told repeatedly I had all the right skills they were looking for. Never heard from them again and my calls and inquiries were never answered.
