    Client Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Marine Credit Union in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online then had a phone interview with a very nice person from HR. I was called a few days later for an interview with the manager. She was a very nice, professional person and I thought the interview went well. I left that interview really wanting to work for Marine Credit Union. Within a few days from that interview I was called for another interview with two more people who were higher in the organization. Each interview was separate and lasted approximately 30 minutes each. From these two interviews I got the impression that neither person was happy to be doing the interview. The first woman was friendly enough but didn't really seem to care what I was answering. The second person who came in looked at me like I was something on the bottom of his shoe and consistently had a frown on his face the whole time I was talking. I left that interview knowing I did not have the job and not really caring. At that point I was just happy to get out of there. It still seems like a good company and like I said my first two contacts with the company were awesome and really represented the company well.

I initially met with one bank executive and then met with CFO for an interview, from there I took a two hour skills assessment test.

    Reasons for Declining

    The salary was lower than I was looking for, additionally I called around and talked to people who had worked for this CFO previously and they said they would not work for her no matter what, that she was difficult to work for and had unreasonable expectations.

    IT Software Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in La Crosse, WI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in La Crosse, WI
    Application Details

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Marine Credit Union in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    I first received a phone call from a company recruiter after I submitted my application via Monster.com. The recruiter discussed with me my qualifications, then indicated I should hear something within a week. The following week I received another phone call from the recruiter who wanted to coordinate a phone interview between myself and the CIO, who was the hiring manager. The following week I had a 40 minute phone interview with the CIO. The next day, I received a phone call from the recruiter indicating that they would like to fly me out and set me up with a hotel room and a car so that I could go through the face-to-face interview process. The next week, I flew out to the company, took a personality test and had one face-to-face interview with a person who would be my peer colleague. The second day, I took a database programming test, followed by an interview with the HR director, the CEO, and finally with the CIO. I found it odd to interview with both the CIO and CEO for a position that was not considered an executive level position.
    My perceptions of the people is that they were very nice and acted as people from a very small company would act. The IT organization is very small; only a total of 11 people. The office is located on the second floor of the main credit union branch. I was told there is a two-story administration office down the road one mile where the IT team would sit. The work culture, although a small company, is much like large organizations. Time is money. The CIO stated several times that he would rather have projects completed early, without once mentioning the word "quality". Everyone is measured on performance, which appears to be a quantitative analysis; again, using the metrics of time, numbers, etc. Quality was never mentioned by any one of the persons with whom I interviewed.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Marine Credit Union.

    Interview Details

    After application you get a call from HR located in Madison. After doing a phone screening they set-up a phone interview. The phone interview is fairly easy. Most questions asked on the phone interview are sales based and experience based. After you complete the phone interview they send a few emails and inside these emails are tests. You take a personality test and an intelligence test. A day or so after that you recieve and phone interview from a higher up manager in HR and they set-up a in branch interview.

    When you get to the branch they have you complete another intelligence test. After you meet with the branch manager and have a typical interview. Some notes from the interview. You are expected to be evaluated daily by what is called a score card, the manager will ask you if you have any experiences similar to that. Then he will ask you how you feel about being micromanaged. Also, you are expected to overcome an objective with the manager right on the spot.

    Lastly, they say they will call you and set up a second in branch interview.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Marine Credit Union in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was first contacted by a Human Resources Specialist. Phone interview lasted approximately 1 hour where we walked through my resume, business situations and some general questions. Was sent a Skills Test, Personality Test and Management Survey over the following couple of days. Following week I was interviewed by the senior human resource manager. Phone interview lasted about 40 minutes and included discussing aspects of my experience. Interviewer was very nice and setup an interview with the CEO later in the week. Interviewed via phone by the CEO who was very professional and pleasant. Interview included questions about work experience and information about Marine Credit's future plans. Although I felt the interview process went well, I was no selected for the position. I was already quite torn on the position and location so there are absolutely no hard feelings.

    Marine Credit Union seems to have been extremely impacted by the economic downturn and subsequent high unemployment. BankRate.com has them rated at 2 stars "Below Peer Group" with asset quality being the biggest concern. This appears to have turned the credit union into a very risk adverse environment with the current business plan showing no growth in the next 12 to 24 months. This may work in the very short term, but I believe the credit union will need to rethink their business plan if they intend to survive going forward. Just taking a quick view, I can see some major member services gaps between Marine and its other competitors. The reported numbers by bankrate.com for the first half of 2010 show the credit union is continuing to lose ground. I suspect 2011 will be a critical year for Marine. I wish them the best of luck.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Marine Credit Union in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very thorough. First I had to take multiple on line tests. After that I went in for an interview with 2 different people and had to take more online tests. After that I interviewed at another location. Then I waited for the district manager to call me for a phone interview. I felt after going through all of the interviews that this was going to be a place that really only hired exceptional candidates. Everyone was really nice throughout the process.
