Interview Details – A 3rd party recruitment agency found my resume and asked me if I was interested in any of the positions they were looking for at Quicken. I told them yes, which was probably my first mistake. I went through and interview with the recruiter to select a position to apply for, then they forwarded on my information. I was granted a 30 minutes phone interview, which I thought would be behavioral one. My recruiter wasn't able to provide any technical details to adequately help me prepare for the interview. As soon as the interviewers joined the conference call and told me their names, they immediately went into "20 questions about databases" mode. They weren't really interested in my background or any of my side projects that demonstrated my passion, just if I could provide the textbook definition answers to their questions. At this point I realized they weren't looking for talented people who could do the job, they were looking for people who had done exactly that job, and they felt I was a waste of their time. They went on to ask me if I was a Guru or Expert on Stack Exchange, of which there are very few (since it is extremely difficult to achieve that title) and people with that kind of experience easily make double what Quicken was offering. The qualifications they were looking for were nowhere near what the job description listed. The next day the recruiter called and told me they decided to go with another candidate, which is rather misleading to say, since the position is still open on the careers page of their site.
Interview Question – Are you a Guru or Expert on Stack Exchange? What certifications do you have or plan to have in the future? Answer Question

Interview Details – it's my first time doing a phone interview, I am not a native speaker and didn't perform well that time. It is a brief phone interview by the HR, generally focused on my resume, no technical question at all. The interview was really short, I think it is more of a fit interview and I didn't get it at last.
Interview Question – I think it"s about speaking on the phone, I don't sounds too enthusiastic I guess Answer Question

Interview Details – I saw a booth at a career fair and gave the talent recruiter my resume and walked away. I didn't think much about it. Then, about 3 months later QL called asking if they could speak with me about some available internships. They allowed me to choose which internship I was most interested in and since I currently work in HR, I chose that one. They called back 3 weeks later and I had my first phone interview. After that one, I had another phone interview.

Interview Details –
Got a phone call shortly after applying asking when was a good time to get interviewed over the phone. The following week I was interview with general behavior and interest questions for about 40~ minutes. This went very well and the HR lady was very nice. She did not have much understanding of the terminology I was using though in regards to IT, and repetitiously asked questions which I had to clarify.
Two weeks later I get another phone interview with an IT manager for about an hour and half .(despite being told it was only going to be 30 minutes) Lots of questions about my aspirations, what experience I've had, things on my resume, and such. So another behavioral interview more or less. Also informative on the relocating to Detroit and the process behind that as well as the neighborhood.
This also went well I felt and got positive feedback from the man on the phone. I was told I would have another phone interview that would be much more technical and specific to the position. The gentleman said he would call back after the weekend with information on what data/time this would happen. It wasn't a possibility or a maybe, it was a certainty that it would happen.
Three (3) weeks pass with no phone call or emails. I sent an email to the first HR lady with a followup wondering what the status of my application was. Three days later, I get a voicemail on my phone from the IT manager telling me that I was no longer in consideration and the position was filled.
So despite telling me I had another phone interview, taking up all that time on the phone, and have me really eager and waiting for this next interview, they just decided to not tell me that they moved on anyway. Very unprofessional and aggravating. Especially when they mentioned a bunch of times they would also consider me for other internship opportunities too during the interviews, and nothing came out of that either.

Interview Details –
I had two phone interviews: a screening interview with a recruiter and then a 30-min interview with the hiring managers. The screening was fairly straightforward, although I felt that the HR rep misrepresented the job a little. The interview with the hiring managers was pretty straightforward. Mostly behavioral questions, which was odd given that I was interviewing for a technical role.
Also, I was very impressed with how quickly they followed up with me. I submitted the required background documents and literally 2 minutes later, I got a phone call from HR confirming that they got them and letting me know what the next steps were.
Interview Question – What is one weakness that you are working on improving? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The HR rep asked me if I was comfortable with rate X. I deferred the discussion by saying something like: "at this point in time, I'm not comfortable discussing salary. I'm sure that we can agree on something fair". After the two interviews, the HR rep followed up with me, offering me the position. I told her that I was interested, but not with the rate. She followed up with the managers and raised the offer, which I accepted. The point: do your research and know your market value.
