    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at First Data (Coral Springs, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a military hiring event the day before. The day of the interview we had to wait to be called which wasn't so bad. The interview was really easy, they explained what you would be doing ask about how much you want to be paid.

    The only thing is one hiring manager called and said I was hired for a different position as I did have 3 interviews that day. They waited 2weeks to tell me I was hired when he told me a couple weeks before. I had to call them to ask them about it.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at First Data in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interview Overkill- I was warned about the lengthy interview process up front by the recruiter and sales director. Very strange personality test online, then a phone interview with recruiter who is contracted by FD, followed by a phone interview from the Regional Sales Director then a face to face interview with the RSD. Next a Skpye interview with his supervisor and next a phone interview with the VP of Sales, all within two weeks. Last an additional phone interview with the recruiter and a phone soft offer from recruiter. After 3 and a half weeks finally an official offer letter.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at First Data (Palo Alto, CA) in April 2015.

    The entire interview process took a little over 30 days from first phone interview to the last on-site interview and job offer. In total, I had 4 phone interviews and 7 face-to-face interviews (3 of the phone interviewers were also among the face-to-face interviewers).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Overall, the process went smoothly over a span of 4+ weeks. I received a call from a recruiter in HR asking me if I wanted to have a 1:1 with the Director. The interview was roughly 45 minutes followed by a tour of the office. I was one of the earlier applicants interviewed so a decision wouldn't be made for another two weeks. I received a call a week later from HR saying the Director wanted to bring me on board and provided me with a contingent offer. Went through the background check, drug test, and salary negotiation. Received a call about a week later from HR congratulating me on getting hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at First Data.

    Interview

    Typical - for some positions the process was very intense and a bit overboard. Lots of red tape and excess time frame to get folks on board which was difficult in staff employed with First Data departments.
