    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at New York Community Bancorp in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online , although wanted to apply for multiple positions , but their system does not allow to apply for multiple positions at one time . After a couple of days received a call from HR recruit to schedule an interview . I asked her about the salary , she told me with my experience , it would be about high 30s , and there was only a part time position available . I had not expected that and I had to decline the interview .

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay was too low for my experience, and the position was downgraded to part time instead of full time.
