    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Discover (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    There was a happy hour event, a couple in-person interviews (on the same day), and then a full day event of interviews at headquarters with group panels and more personal interviews. You needed a little bit of knowledge in finance, but nothing major. They had a couple questions throughout the process about hypothetical situations in the company - but those were usually more related to management as opposed to finance.
