    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at MoneyGram International.

    Interview Details

    Chaotic interview with some in the room and one person on the phone via conference call.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were technical-related to lower level positions. After the interview I told the hiring manager that I was not interested in the lower level position, however, the email was not read and a week later was contacted to come in for a 2nd round of interviews. This should have tipped me off about the completely chaotic nature of MoneyGram.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They asked me how much money I needed to come to MoneyGram.

    Director, Program Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at MoneyGram International in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email from an internal recruiter a week later inviting me to a phone screen for the role. Phone screen lasted an hour with this recruiter but was very assembly-line type repetitive prepared behavioral-based questions. It became old after about 15 minutes and I struggled through the next 45 minutes.

    Another week passed and I was scheduled for a phone interview with the hiring manager. Things seemed awkward from the beginning of our conversation (just never seemed to establish a connection) but my desire for the role began to deteriorate as our discussion progressed. It became apparent this would be a very chaotic organization to work for and that I would be replacing someone that had either quit or was terminated (red flag!). Overall, they came across as very disorganized and were looking for some "rock star" to come in and clean up their mess. Not worth it to me for the salary range offered.

    Received the canned rejection email from HR two weeks later – a blessing in disguise for me!
