Very Easy Interview

Technology Director Interview

Anonymous Employee
Atlanta, GA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Equifax.

Interview Details – Simplified process with basic interview questions. All single person interviews so very repetitive of content and questions.

Interview Question – Where do you want to be with position   View Answer

Negotiation Details – 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.

Senior Director Interview

Senior Director
Jersey City, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Equifax in September 2010.

Interview Details – Long. Long-distance + one in-person set of interviews. Tedious. Hire decision involved a whole lot of internal discussion at Equifax. I came as "recommended by current employee as really good" but Equifax took its own sweet time. Maybe it really was complicated for Equifax because I'm working now at less than 50% of my former salary (because, well, Atlanta salaries aren't New York salaries). (On the other hand, I work at home now and can walk my dog mid-day.)

Interview Question – Why was I laid off during subprime mortgage crisis? A: I was in mortgage industry, which was suffering effects of mortgage crisis. (Hello. Obvious?) Why couldn't I find another job in the meantime? A: Wasn't looking for next job due to family situation. My elderly mother broke both legs, which was a major catastrophe for the entire family. (Stupid questions, I know. #1 has obvious, not-connected-with-my-performance answer. #2 has many an equally obvious answer, which was also not my answer: 'Mortgage market isn't hiring anywhere. No housing starts. No new construction. No new mortgage loans. No RMBS securitizations. US mortgages were, at that time, DEAD." etc. etc. etc.)   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Really, negotiation? I was happy to accept to have health insurance benefits again. Biggest obstacle for Equifax was that I live in NYC metro area but Equifax offered me Atlanta pay. It took Equifax a long time to decide that they could make that offer of employment/salary to me. It wasn't much of an obstacle for me to decide to accept so that I could have health insurance benefits again, despite the Atlanta-based salary.

Professional Services Consultant IV Interview

Professional Services Consultant IV

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Equifax in May 2011.

Interview Details – They focused more on character and ability to fit in with the company than with technical skills. I had to show that I could install some software, that I understood basic networking and architecture, and that I was personable and social enough to deal with customers.

They wanted and answer immediately but waited for me to make my decision.

Interview Question – Install this old version of our software in under an hour with these instructions.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Easy. I asked for more, they met me in the middle. Not a super high salary, but competitive. They won't overpay, but they will take care of you.
