-Phone interview with Human Resources
-Face to Face interview with Consumer Lending Supervisor and Manager
During this interview management was most concerned with weather or not I would be able to work the schedule involving 1 and 1/2 Saturdays per month. Various details of job requirements were "candy coated". I was not shown the department layout "cubicles".
- The interview was very relaxed. No difficult or unexpected questions were asked. I was fully qualified, they were just concerned about the Saturday rotation. Answer Question
I did not negotiate, however after starting and seeing the stress level , staff shortage, and multiple Saturdays required to work I wish I had negotiated at least $5k more.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Security Service Federal Credit Union (San Antonio, TX) in May 2011.
Contacted a staffing agency looking for a Junior Software Developer position. The recruiter told me about a position available at SSFCU and scheduled an interview for me that same week. The interview took place at the staffing agency. It was two 30 minute interviews, one with a manager and one with the VP of Development. The manager asked mostly big picture questions about my experience. The VP asked technical questions related to bullet points on my resume, to gauge whether I really knew the stuff I had listed.
I thought the interview went very well, but I received a rejection email from the recruiter a week later. He gave me a very generic reason for why they chose another candidate, but he also asked that I remove my tongue piercing for future interviews. I got the impression that SSFCU values a candidate's appearance more than their knowledge.
In the end, I'm glad I didn't receive an offer. If my tongue ring was a deal breaker, I can't even imagine their reaction to my visible tattoos.
- How would you react if you felt strongly about a tool or technology you wanted to work with but your supervisor disagreed with it and wanted to use something else instead? Answer Question

SSFCU appears to post jobs as if they are actual specific job openings, which is misleading. Candidates are explicitly asked two times, before they even interview, to state their availability. I was told I would be notified regarding the outcome of my interview but was not; after repeated attempts I finally found out that I was eligible for hire but there weren't any openings matching my extensive availability. It appears this company conducts cattle calls under the pretense that there are specific job openings. It's really just a means for them to collect qualified applicants to "put in a bucket", if ever needed. They should be more forthcoming when they post jobs.
