    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Arrow Electronics (Denver, CO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    HR Phone Interview for initial screening followed by an in person interview on site. The HR interview was very boiler plate, with the typical behavior type questions. HR representative wasn't very skilled at the interview process. It seemed like she was just reading off a list and had little interpersonal skills that other HR representatives have.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Arrow Electronics in June 2015.

    Interview

    One interview - panel of 3 women. One participant just stared at me, like I was an idiot. I was further insulted by being told that I wouldn't be a good fit as I was not familiar with Supplier Accounting. Very open ended interview process, felt like walking into a trap.
