    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ally Financial (Detroit, MI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    First i went to job fair at my university that i think was the hardest because you have to make a good impression in a short amount of time they get 100s of resumes. Two weeks after job fair got a call for phone interview which lasted about an hour, they asked why you want to work for this company, and any excel skills i had. Finally i got a call the next day for invitation to Ally super day where i interviewed with four different departments, everyone was really easy to talk to i was nervous but they made it a conversation rather than an interview after the first interview i wasn't nervous at all.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Ally Financial (Southfield, MI) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 3 people and lasted an hour long. Got asked many questions by only a single one of them though. 2 of them were cheery, one of them was the most condescending woman ever. She could not put a smile on her face. Asked mostly behavioral questions about what I would do in hypothetical situations. Some questions about skills with certain programs too.

    Initially had a phone interview with an internal recruiter, which was very basic. Next, they invited me in on a Friday to meet with a few managers. Then, they brought me back in the following Friday to meet with some directors and a vice president. I received an offer the following Tuesday.

    Much of the interview process was explaining experience, education, and future career goals. I considered it fairly basic.
