Director Engineering Interview

Director Engineering
Hillsboro, OR

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fiserv in July 2012.

Interview Details – Like any big company, the process was a little longer than I expected (takes a long time for wheels to turn, I think). The people I talked to were very nice although you could tell there was not a systemic approach to seeking candidates. Several phone interviews and in-person interviews were required.

Interview Question – There were some VERY detailed technical questions that suggested they valued technical acumen over leadership skills.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Quick and painless. Got very close to what I wanted.

Software Design Architect Interview

Software Design Architect
Sioux Falls, SD

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fiserv in September 2012.

Interview Details – Applied on a Monday morning, was e-mailed for an interview the next day. Had first interview the next Monday and was pretty basic. Overall just culture fit type questions. Had a phone interview with senior manager the same week, just to clarify salary request. Third interview the next week and ended up basically being an hour shadowing someone to understand more about the job. Overall the experience was pretty laid back and relatively easy.

Interview Question – Tell me when you should communicate via e-mail vs. in-person communication.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I chose not to negotiate my salary.

Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing Interview

Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing
Los Angeles, CA

I interviewed at Fiserv in September 2008.

Interview Details – Followed a pretty conventional path of requisite conversations with HR, hiring managers, and potential peer senior managers.

Interview Question – Didn't encounter and questions that I considered "difficult" or unexpected. Fiserv is very NOP/EBITDA oriented and they only cared about growing the sales pipeline with the assumption that profitability will take care of itself as long as your sales are good   Answer Question

Entry Level Applications Developer Interview

Entry Level Applications Developer
King of Prussia, PA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fiserv in September 2012.

Interview Details – Interview process includes a phone call from somewhere in the country by HR. The interviewer became confrontational when they ask a question and I elaborated and didn't give a short, blunt answer. Interviewer expressed her disapproval of financial regulations even though there clients may be organizations that almost caused a global economic collapse. Then you are given a face-to-face interview where we discussed big banks versus small banks since they do lending software for big banks at this location. The interviewer made many assumptions about what courses are covered and what courses people take in college. The interviewer was surprised I didn't read a technical/professional book in graduate school, a type of book student learners do not read. I was very clear about what topics I studied as an undergraduate and graduate school. The interviewer rudely walked away after leaving the office. Are people in this industry incapable of common courtesy? I received an email 4 weeks later that they do not have an appropriate position available. If I was inappropriate for the position, why waste my gas, and toll money and their company time used to interview me?

Interview Question – What software design patterns do you know?   View Answer

Research Analyst Interview

Research Analyst
Dublin, OH

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Fiserv in April 2012.

Interview Details – Involved 3 phone interviews. This was for an analyst position. Some of the people on the other end were definite analyst types -- very analytical. However, they were really nice. Be yourself, be professional, brush up on relevant analytical skills and experiences.

Most questions centered on "give me an example when"

Interview Question – I can't really think of anything. Probably handling conflicts, or situation that you personally didn't agree with.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was employed at the time with another company. I stuck to my guns and didn't move on my negotiation. I got what I asked for. I would encourage you all to do the same. There are some great resources for salary that are unbiased. Check your state government agency website for occupational employment statistics (OES). I referenced this to HR and I think it was what truly helped me to get what I was asking for.
