    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Outerwall (Oakbrook Terrace, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and got an email to set a phone interview. Phone interview was with a nice recruiter from their Washington office. He was very detailed with the interview a lot of questions about my interest in the company and the position and why I applied. By surprise I was picked for an in person interview. The in person was in OakBrook Terrace, IL. Their Building is nice, a lot of movies because they own Redbox. I met with the whole tax dept, so that I will not have to return for a 2nd interview before they made a decision. They asked me a lot of questions on my work experiences and questions about working in a group. The interview was more conversational than anything. Leaving I thought the interview went good, the manager told me they were looking to make a decision the following week. The following week, no answer, but they called me to tell me that they were still interested in me. That made me feel good, The end of the following week they called me back after 2 emails to tell me they went with someone with more tax experience. I would've been OK with that if they did not get my happy by calling me and telling me they were still interested. They posted the position again after I was already set up for an in person interview which is another thing I did not like.
