    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cobank in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was in depth but well worth it. The hiring managers are wonderful and the company feel is a true team environment. The office felt comfortable and clean with friendly faces greeting as they walked by.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my university's career site. The process was tedious and the application was WAY too long. I really should not have even wasted my time. I attempted several times to get ahold of someone at CoBank to no avail. I feel as if they ignore everyone that tries to contact them.

    Credit Development Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Cobank.

    Interview Details

    The process was two separate phone interviews with two different people, followed by a full day of five separate interviews at their corporate campus with five different people, plus a lunch with two different people. I also had to get five professional references to fill out an online survey about me.

    My main beef with the interview process was that it took five months as well as nobody following through with me and refusing to return my phone calls and emails. A five month process is ridiculous and unreasonable for an entry-level job. Most CEO searches don't take that long.

    After my interviews on the main campus, they told me they expected to have an answer in 2 weeks. I waited 3 weeks and then called the recruiter. She didn't return my call. I waited another week and emailed the recruiter, no response. I called again and spoke to the recruiting assistant who relayed my message to the recruiter, still no response. Finally, the recruiter called me over a month later, saying she had been ignoring me because she didn't have an answer yet and informed me they had chosen a different candidate.

    The professional thing to do would have been to keep me in the loop as to the process, and if they don't have an answer yet, return my call or email and tell me so. The whole time I had other job opportunities on the table that I couldn't move forward with because I was waiting on Cobank.

    Besides those issues, the interviews and the questions in them were pretty standard. Asked questions about my background, work experience, education etc. Just over and over again with different people.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Golden Valley, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Cobank.

    Interview Details

    Longest interview process I've ever been through. Interviews ran over scheduled time and I interviewed in person with 3 people in person on several different days (not including several phone interviews with recruiter/HR). I know later (as the job market worsened) that candidates for the department had an even longer gauntlet of interviews with every possible stakeholder.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I had gotten a call from a recruiter to see if I was interested and asked what salary I'd require. Initial offer was for exactly that number - if the bonus was counted. CoBank is good about paying out bonuses.

    Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greenwood Village, Arapahoe, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cobank in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    First interview was a phone call with someone from HR. Mostly this was just to get a feel of what type of person I am and if I would fit into the company.

    Second interview was with people in IT. They were mostly trying to figure out where my skill set is in terms of application development, as well as how I solve problems. The problem solving aspect was almost always more important than the actual answer being correct.

    The third and final interview was with my future boss. This was mostly a formality to make sure he was happy with fit on the team.

    Interview Questions
    • Answered various questions on CSS and .net MVC architecture.   Answer Question

    Interview process is good, and immediate, direct report to manager needs more authority to select and choose the best fit for the position.

    Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cobank in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview was similar to the one on one interview. They asked employment history and management style. I answered the same to both, however, I was not offered the position due to lack of specific experience. Not sure how that knowledge changed from one interview to the next but that is what I was told. The questions in the one on one interview were more of what I expected from the HR phone interview. Not someone I would choose to work with had I been offered the position as her demeanor was cold and uninviting.
