Declined Offer – Interviewed in Cincinnati, OH Jan 2013 – Reviewed Apr 25, 2013
Interview Details – The HR recruiter called me and asked me to come in to take an assessment test. There was no conversation about an interview or who I should come to meet with. I would recommend coming in with your best professional attire and resume in hand. When the recruiter came to meet with me, she was very standdoff-ish. A simple "hello and this way please" then "you will have 15 minutes to take this test" then "wait here and someone will be with you shortly." Take the last statement as there will be an interview and prepare for at least 3 people to meet with you. The first is the employee relations person then the next two are potential managers. They are the typical type questions "what do you know about underwriting, what made you interested." etc.
Interview Question – How do you think you did on the test? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The timing of the contact was very delayed. Also after going back and reviewing how Human Resources was during the interview process and that I was given limited information made me concerned on how the employees are treated in the work place. Also the pay was much less than a competitor's company.
Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Fairfield, OH May 2010 – Reviewed Jan 17, 2013
Interview Details – I was interviewed by two people in person...not over the phone...the hiring manager and the team lead for which I was to work. They asked fair questions, typical interview questions. They were very casual which helped me relax during the process. The interview lasted less than 45 minutes. I was then shown around the work area a bit. People seemed very friendly and the work environment was not tense at all. Very pleasant, actually and the sound of laughter could be heard in nearby cubes.
Interview Question – The most difficult question was in regards to my direct experience in the financial testing arena. While I had a great deal of time in the financial arena, none of my experience would really help me. But they seemed to feel otherwise. There was also a gap in my employment, so I gave details on what I was doing during that time. There was no stress or pressure put on me at all during the questioning. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Little negotiation....I either accepted or declined. It was cut and dry. This probably had to do with the fact that I came in as a contractor. There really was no negotiating since the company would only pay the contracting company a certain amount.
