Once the phone interviews were complete, I spent one afternoon interviewing with each VP of the department then was invited back for a final interview with the SVP.

    Senior Midrange Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Equifax (Alpharetta, GA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The HR folks seemed competent and kept the process rolling. HR was very easy to work with and accommodating. Wish I could say that about everyone here. The interview with management was a complete cluster. My advice is don't apply here unless you have the _exact_ experience, can read minds, can feign complete agreement to everything they say, and are soulless to boot. You are probably on the fast track to management if you have those 4 things. The egos of mgmt seemed off the scale and combined with a pompous arrogance that filled the room like the stench of burning dung. The regular staff seemed nice and mainly normal -- imagine that. So the worker bees don't seem like the problem here but there does seem to be one. One other down side to even get an interview you have to submit to an early and invasive check of your personal history. Definitely not worth the time and effort in my opinion.
