I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at CIT (Portsmouth, NH) in July 2015.
Applied online and immediately received an email response from the HR recruiter wanting to setup a phone interview - during the phone interview, he stated that he thought I was a perfect fit for the job. I was contacted again to come in for an in-person interview, which I did. Interview went really well, I hit it off with everyone I met with. They indicated that I was a great fit for the job, I was really excited about it, and truly thought that I might get an offer. They assured me that they would contact me within three business days with a decision. Unfortunately, I never heard back from them, even after I followed-up asking for an update. Not even to tell me I didn't get the job. That was disappointing; however, the most disappointing part came when I saw the same job re-posted online a few days later.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at CIT (Jacksonville, FL) in June 2015.
A recruiter for their Jacksonville office called me. The interview was with three people: litigation manager, senior bankruptcy specialist, and some other guy. It was a short interview and they were not dressed very professionally. In fact they were super dressed down. I asked them what advancement in the company looked like? The response was that you would have to wait to move up until one of them retired or died. ( Not in so many words but this is the gist) The people were nice and seem to love the company. However, I got the feeling that no one stayed in this position
- They asked me general questions. Why was I applying? What do I know about CIT? What do you know about Bankruptcy? What type of environment do you thrive in? etc. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at CIT (New York, NY) in May 2015.
Applied through online website. Human resources reached out for interview. 2 Rounds of interview before a decision is made. Good experience. Interviewers were Vice President, Assistant Vice President, and two directors. Office was very nice and transparent environment.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day – interviewed at CIT (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.
Traditional interview. I had the direct supervisor and hiring manager scheduled to speak with. They also had an unplanned peer interview. They asked questions first, then asked me if I had questions. I was able to walk completely through my work experience with that person. Very good questions that were meant to really understand what I did and what I knew, rather than "tell me about yourself." They answered my questions directly and thoroughly.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at CIT (Livingston, NJ) in March 2015.
Handed my resume to a recruiter at my college career fair. A month later, I had received a call for a on site interview. Recruiter who called was mumbling and I was not able to recall their name until i had called back. Played phone tag until we finally got a hold of one another and set up a date for the interview with a manager. However, a few days before the interview I received a call stating that the manager was busy and could make it at that time. I then scheduled an interview for a couple of weeks down the line with a different manager. Arrived at the place 15 minutes early but the managers were 15 minutes late. First manager asked me about my resume and then the second came in 10 minutes later. Interview was them explaining more about IT and using weird analogies. I asked questions and I never had a feel that they liked what I brought to the table. They joked that what I did was unusual and used "shift left" as a way to explain what they did. However, as much as I could relate I wasn't able to convince them because they were looking for someone who was more intuitive. Interviewed ended with a best of luck. Was not told when I would be contacted and was not given a chance to ask the question. I emailed the initial recruiter not too long later and was then got an email a month later that I was not chose from the preliminary round. Company is disorganized and needs to respond more swifter. People there believe that they know a lot, but are more expendable.

I applied online – interviewed at CIT.
Interview was unprofessional, hiring process took about a month from date of interview. process was lengthy and a waist of time. Position not as proclaimed to be. There are a lot more positions available for this company, I feel management under the facilities coordinator could use additional help in rehabilitating this particular position.

Easy transition. There were no issues and the process was efficient and without delays. The key personnel were brought to the process and were direct in what they required, HR was a supportive ally on both sides and negotiations went smoothly and quickly.
