    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Experian in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially a recruiter contacts you and conducts a basic phone interview. Casual nice and comfortable. Basically it is to learn about candidate and see if they are a good fit for position. If you pass that, the next step is an in person interview while it can take a bit of time to schedule, the recruiter is great with giving status updates. In person, I interviewed with a small group, they really give you the opportunity to talk about yourself and skills. They ask questions as needed and allow the candidate to ask questions. Comfortable and professional Everyone was very nice. Definitely left me with a wonderful impression of the company.

    Very professional... They offered a great salary and package. After accepting you go through the normal background check and drug testing, which actually goes quite quickly. One of the best interview processes I have ever gone through. Even the security personnel outside in parking lot and inside at reception were professional and courteous.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Experian in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    If you can get through HR you are halfway there. Interviewed one on one, then group. Pretty standard stuff. Asked relevant questions. The group is more formal so wear business attire, white, black, blue etc. generally takes 30-45 min time for one on one or hour to hour and half for group. Expect to have full background check done. HR seems to take awhile to respond.

    Software Implementation Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Carmel, IN
    Anonymous Employee in Carmel, IN
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Experian in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted via a recruiter to interview for position in Carmel. Recruiter was very nice and helpful. Passed the first 2 phone interviews then went to Carmel for an onsite interview. Interview went incredibly well. Office was very depressing and dark and the cubicle setup was really horrible looking. Got a phone call the next day that they decided to go with someone further along in the interview process. Talked with the recruiter and determined that this position was already filled and I was never actually being considered. Completely unprofessional and a waste of time.
