    Senior QA Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Experian in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The company doesn't respect interview candidates.

    Had four separate interviews with Experian (2 of them face-to-face).

    After having all of these interviews, nobody ever got back to me to say whether I got the job or not.

    That was a lot of time spent on the interview process.

    What does that tell you about the company?

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Experian in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by an employee who was also the hiring manager. HR representative set up in person interviews with Finance manager, 2 Finance Directors, and the VP of Finance. Interviews varied based on the preference of the interviewer. For example, one Finance Director asked very detailed and thorough questions on my background and specific skills and the other was more high level and personality based (integrity, work-ethic, etc.). Interviews were approx. 30min each. To complete all interviews took 2 separate visits. The final step was a skills test for excel and finance modeling, before the offer was made. Advice on the process.. highlight how specific job experience applies to role applying for

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Experian in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    After going through a number of telephone screening interviews with HR, the hiring manager, and a potential peer, I was invited to the Costa Mesa campus. I was flown out and put up in a local hotel by the company at their expense. I met 1:1 with numerous potential peers and eventually my hiring manager face to face. All of the interviews were nice, people were engaging and open. I specifically did research on every one of them and they really seemed to be impressed by the fact that I knew a lot of little things. When I met with my hiring manager, the initial enthusiasm that she had for me over the phone was not there and after a very short meeting, I met one more person and that was it.

    After a few weeks delay, I got a call from the manager telling me that I was a fantastic candidate, that I did not make the next cut and I would be kept in mind for other positions. She also went on to say that no candidate was perfect so I remember feeling as if there was no standout candidate. Maybe, maybe not.
