    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Janus Capital in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Everything about this process went smoothly. The whole thing was pretty standard. Initial conversation with the recruiter, who was an absolute joy to work with. Another interview with the hiring manager, which was a little more technical in nature. A third interview with the Director, for final approval.

    Interview Questions
    • For me, the most difficult question had nothing to do with the position, but more of why I would choose to leave a good opportunity for a new company.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I really enjoyed everyone I talked to at the company, and the culture there. However, in the end, we were too far about on salary.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Janus Capital in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Required two interviews (one on one, then with two fellow staff). Friendly and pleasant company to interview with. There was a hiccup with both interviews - the first was my fault, my GPS kept taking me another way so I had to call their HR lady for directions, she was very understanding and accommodating, especially when I turned up 10 minutes late as a result (big oops). The second interview, same HR lady forgot to put me in their calendar after I confirmed via email, so when I showed up, I was told that it wasn't scheduled and may have to come back. However she felt badly and did her best to correct the error and squeezed me in about 10 minutes later. All lovely staff to interview with, sadly didn't get the job. Hopefully I'll get another crack at it one day.
