    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Western Union (Denver, CO) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume and cover letter and received a phone call 3 weeks later. Scheduled an in person interview within a week. Interview was pretty standard "tell me about your work history". There were no weird or surprising questions. It felt more like a meet and greet instead of an actual interview.

    AML Compliance Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Western Union (Englewood, CO) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by someone in the department who set up a group phone interview a few days later. The interview was with three people. I was then asked to come in for a second in-person interview with two girls and a guy and they asked some fairly standard questions about my experience, how I manage time, what I know about risk, and stuff like that. I asked some questions but the interviewers seemed like that they couldn't understand my questions because they didn't answer them with real answers. The girls seemed to be bothered that they were in the interview and the guy pretty much sat back and let them ask the questions.

    AML Compliance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Western Union (Englewood, CO) in March 2014.

    Interview

    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. .

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Western Union (Denver, CO) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Interview Process was stretched out over four (4) individuals, none of whom ended up being the hiring manager; and those four separate interviews spread out over ten weeks. By the time the job offer was made, the job title/description had changed. The salary discussions were at the high end and the offer ended up at the absolute minimum.

    Senior Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    No Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Western Union (Englewood, CO).

    Interview

    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.
