Credit Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Credit Acceptance in October 2013.
Interview Details – The Human Resources department was very friendly and welcoming. The waiting area had photos of employees partaking in various activities together outside of work, like a chili cook off, Halloween party and volunteering. It displayed that the company valued its workers and that strong relationships were an important part to making it an enjoyable work environment.
Two men interviewed me for the credit analyst position. It was a little intimidating the interviewers were not very personable and just read the questions and wrote my responses with little interaction. After the interview I had to do a typing test. I never received a call from Credit Acceptance about my status in the interview, but since it has been about 4 months I take it that I did not get the job.
Interview Question – I had to do a role play where I was speaking with a disgruntle customer who was trying to get me to do something that was against company policy. It was difficult because I did not have any experience in this particular field or knowledge of the policies and procedures. Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Credit Acceptance in May 2013.
Interview Details – I was called by a gentleman who identified himself as the recruiter for C.A. He told me he would call me at a scheduled time to interview me for the job. The process took twenty minutes and the questions were fairly generic. I felt that the interview and result was predetermined. There was no real interest in me or my qualifications.I
Was asked one question about how I would find new business for the company. The response was....really strange as the interview was boring. The questions were boring and the recruiter was boring. There was no excitement about the company or the job.
When I asked questions about the company,I did receive straight forward answers but when I asked about how many women were involved in the management of the company, the recruiter got very defensive.
I was not impressed and obviously the recruiter wasn't impressed with me as I did not get another interview.....just a thank you letter.

Senior Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Credit Acceptance in January 2013.
Interview Details – 1st interview was a phone discussion with HR.
2nd interview was a phone discussion with the hiring manager.
Then it is followed by an IQ/Intelligence and Personality Test from a company called as Caliper Corp. I was expecting it a personality test but it had a lot of IQ questions.
Then, I NEVER received an email or phone call or message from them. Not certain what that was all about. When asked, there was another (4th) interview that was scheduled with another project manager.
Then, without any feedback they said to pass on this position. Guess what, they did not even wish to disclose reasons for passing on.
I think after 2-3 weeks of engagement, I did expect some feedback. It looks like I wasted time interviewing.
