    AML Compliance Analyst Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Western Union in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview was via phone with HR. Second was via phone about three weeks later with the Compliance Officer. During the interview, I was told that I would be doing an on site tour within a week to meet the staff. After a week passed and I didn't hear from anyone, I emailed HR because I wasn't allowed to be given the Compliance Officer's email. I inquired as to what the om site tour status would be. Two days later, I was contacted and interviewed again via phone by a staff member that was hired four months prior. I was told that she was asked by the Compliance Officer to conduct another interview with me and was told to expect to hear back from the Compliance Officer shortly there after. Another two weeks passed, I emailed the staff member but never received a reply. I then contacted HR and was told they'd find out about the on site interview date by the end of the week. It's been two and a half months.

    I would never apply to this company again. .

    Senior Accountant Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Western Union.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process I experienced with WU was as follows: after I was selected for an interview, my recruiters told me in advance to have five references ready and to ask them to be "generous" with their feedback (ie solid gold 100% positive feedback). They stressed this fairly heavily. The interview itself lasted about an hour and a half, during which I took a short accounting test which mainly focuses on intercompany accounting, timing differences and basic foreign currency accounting. A few days later I was asked for my references, and a few days after that I was told there was a "problem" with one of my references and the process could no longer move forward. No word if this individual gave me a 0% or just 95% positive feedback.

    Senior Analyst Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Western Union in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of their admin staff calling to setup an interview. The interviewers were boring and not interested in presenting the best image of company. The staff in the corridors talked in hushed tones as I went by them and looked you up and down as though telling you something. What impressed me most was how uninterested the whole place looked.

    Interview Questions
    • Repetitious questions about your experience. Interviewers kept on emphasising their the department had gone through reorganization from the very start of the interview- pretty depressing way to start any interview   Answer Question

    Take it or leave it- they keep mentioning reoganization that they went through at every step of the way

    Web Content Producer Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Western Union in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    My initial conversation was a phone call with the manager for the group as she is based in a different location. We spoke for roughly 45 mins during which she gave me an overview of both the department and the job. The interview itself was mostly conversational with almost no "textbook" interview questions.

    I was then scheduled for an in-person interview with the 2 members of the team based here in CO. Again, both interviews skewed heavily on the conversational side (description of the job, company, etc) and very few direct questions... mostly just back & forth with me interjecting my skills/experience where I could.

    My final interview was a phone call with another member of the team. Like the previous 3, it was mostly conversational although this person was a bit more on the technical side, so they did ask a few technical-based questions.

    Unfortunately I did not get the offer for this position. It came down to myself and one other candidate. My experience was almost an identical line-for-line match of the job description, however my recruiter was unable to get any feedback on why I was not selected. I came in at the top of the salary range, so my hunch is that might have been the determining factor.

    Overall I felt the 4 interviews (conversations) were fairly easy and laid back. I would rate my interview experience as a positive.

    Interview Questions
    • As noted above, there were very few (if any) direct questions. The questions that were asked were straightforward questions about my work experience. No tricky behavioral questions or "What's your greatest weakness?" type nonsense.   Answer Question
