    Desktop Support Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at FHLBank San Francisco in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview went well. Met with IT manager alone, then Desktop and Service desk leads. They seemed very team spirited. Had to come back t weeks later for a third interview. It seemed excessive.

    Administrative Services Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at FHLBank San Francisco.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview was very quick, but the latter follow up was very slow just for an in-person interview. Asked very standard questions, and met with a few members on the team. They did give me time to ask questions, and were generally very nice. But with each interviewer, it felt a bit repetitious (which they did provide early warning which was nice of them). The atmosphere seems very quiet there, and people seem glued to their desk. Not exactly an environment I would want to work in.

    After the interview, I was contemplating if I even wanted to work there as I started to see that there wasn't exactly much growth opportunity.

    Interview Details

    Slow. They just don't react very quickly once you have an interview. They will get back to you, just be patient.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty ordinary questions. Depends on who the hiring manager is.   Answer Question

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Francisco, CA

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at FHLBank San Francisco in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    In-depth phone interview with a recruiter who not only questioned my technical skills, but also my experience and how it related to my career goals (as I'm transitioning from IT to Finance). He indicated that I was not the right fit for the position, but suggested ideas that might get me what I ultimately want. Based on the three recruiters I was in touch with, my perceptions of the employees was one of professionalism. They knew and enjoyed their jobs, and appeared to have an easy camaraderie with each other.
