    Fraud Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Discover in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position some time in September and was called for a short phone interview/conversation approx. a week later. I was then offered the opportunity to come in for a face to face interview. The location is very secure and very big. I went in through the HR department and was first taken on a tour. This place has all of the bells and whistles. A café, gym, several break rooms. I was then interviewed by HR, and then a team lead for the team I would be working on if offered the opportunity. The interview was at about 10:00am, by about 3:00pm I received a call offering me the position, this all took place on a Friday. I then went back to the Discover location the following Monday for fingerprinting, and a drug test which is taken at their site, with their nurse. At this point your background check is still pending. Mine took a little less than a week to come back. I wasn't crazy about the pay, but from everything I've read, and was told about Discover, they are very big on promoting from within.

    Cardmember Assistance Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Discover in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very lengthy process. Simple online app and assessment. No communication between recruiters - I got multiple calls and emails from different people about the job and different contradicting instructions from the emails and the assessments. Phone interview - about 30 minutes, mostly confirming things from the application. First interview - took about an hour, with HR. Best part of the experience - got a tour and began to feel very excited about the possibility of working there. Was scheduled for a second interview, which I had to leave my current job early to make. She assured me she would call me to check in and see how it went. Received an email canceling my interview about 45 minutes before it was supposed to begin. Unfortunately, I had already left work once that week for this interview and could not do so again, and they seemed unhappy that I could not reschedule until the following week. Second interview - about an hour, with the department manager. Everything went great. I didn't get a call from the HR recruiter that evening as she'd promised, or the next morning. Instead got a do not reply email from the recruiter later that day saying they'd chosen another candidate. The position continued to be posted on the website for quite some time after that. Very disappointed that I didn't even get a phone call after having spent several hours interviewing for this entry level position, not to mention them having cancelled on me at the last minute with no explanation or apology. Very poor form.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Valley City, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Valley City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Discover.

    Interview Details

    The interview process when I was hired consisted of three interviews or levels. The first one was HR, the second was a team leader, and the third was a department manager. You need to pass each level to get hired and the questions get a bit harder each time. Just keep it professional, on topic (relevant), and having experience or talking about sales really helps.

    After working here for a while you will see all kinds of people that have worked here. It seems overkill to really go to the level they make you go through for a job. They really should talk to you for a bit, confirm you are not a criminal and a decent person and give you a shot.

    I had a phone interview which led to a face to face interview. I met with two directors as well as the individual I had the phone screen with. I never received any feedback from anyone regarding the position or if I was selected or declined until 2 months later. They told me that the requisition was cancelled and they would call me for a recruiter position that was coming up which I was never called for.
