I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Equifax (Atlanta, GA).
Simplified process with basic interview questions. All single person interviews so very repetitive of content and questions.
- Where do you want to be with position 1 Answer
Recruiter did not pass any of my requests on to the hiring manager but stated they were. Said all requests were non-negotiable (days of leave, start date) based on company policy. Learned from Manager they could have been.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Equifax (Atlanta, GA) in April 2012.
The interview process was rather disorganized and poorly scheduled. The managers with whom I met spent very little time with me. There was an agenda, but one senior manager arrived some 25 minutes late and didn't spend much time. It really wasn't much of an interview and I asked most of the questions.
- There weren't any difficult questions asked of me and nothing unexpected. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Equifax (Alpharetta, GA) in March 2015.
The overall process took 4 months. One month wait between the initial recruiter call to the call to schedule an onsite interview. Another 1+ month for the decision. If you negotiate salary verbally, recruiter goes back to check and never returns for a month.
- Questions about past experience Answer Question
Nope. I ended up accepting what they offered.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Equifax (Atlanta, GA).
I initially applied online through the company's career website. Within 2 weeks, I received an email from the recruiter wanting to schedule a phone interview. I had a phone interview the next day. Then I was forwarded to interview with hiring manager. It was a very pleasant interview. Basic behavioral and future career goal questions asked. It took about a month for me notified that I was offered the position

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Equifax (Alpharetta, GA) in September 2015.
Received a phone call from Talent Acquisition one week after applying online. Scheduled a phone interview - general questions about my work experience and salary expectations. A few days later, I had another phone interview with the Hiring Manager, which lasted about 30 minutes. A week later, I was invited for a face-to-face interview where we discussed the role in more detail. I was able to visit the floor to meet members of the department. Very smooth process that took about five weeks.

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

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Equifax (Alpharetta, GA) in February 2013.
Typical interview process: Talk to HR, then interview with the hiring manager. Came in to interview with the leadership team, team members, and hiring manager in person. There were a few calls as well with senior folks who I would be working with. Overall, it took about 60 days from the initial job submission to starting.
- How do you influence people to work for you when they don't report to you or have a higher position than you? 1 Answer
