    Compliance Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Alliance Data (Columbus, OH) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for the position as they found my resume online. It was for a long term contract position with the possibility of no end date. The next day I received an interview request. I interviewed with the manager and a co-manager for the position in the regulatory response unit with their bank. The interview was easy, conversational and enjoyable. I was a bit overqualified for the position and their feedback to the recruiter was positive. They felt I would get bored easily with the mundane tasks required in responding to the bank regulators and consumer requests on complaints. The only thing that was clear that you would always be a contractor from them as the work fluctated, other than that, I would be interested in a permanent position with this company in perhaps another role.

    Interview Questions

    • You have a lot of impressive experience responding to regulators in compliance. What is your experience in responding to consumers with complaints as we receive a lot of volume from them? You have to adjust the audience and adapt quickly back and forth.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Alliance Data (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    Over the past year, I've interviewed for a handful of positions with Alliance Data. I am convinced they must get paid per person they interview, because there is no other explanation for their continued wasting of my time and the time of others.

    The process goes like this - you apply (or are contacted by a recruiter), have a phone screen, then you're brought in for a 2 hour or so interview where you meet several people on the team. It's not a difficult interview process, but their HR process leaves a lot to be desired. There is a disconnect between the people you speak with and HR. The people you speak with will actually lead you to believe they are going to hire you. They even go as far as talking as if you already have the role, "on Wednesdays there is lunch, so you'll want to not pack your lunch that day".

    It's an incredibly unfair way to treat job-seekers. The job hunt process is tough as is - no need to make it worse with false pretenses and superficiality.

    After my experience in the past year with Alliance Data, I can say that I would never waste my time applying for another position with them again. They've shown me they are absolutely not the kind of company I would want to work for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Alliance Data (Columbus, OH) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was extremely laid back and asked all questions you would expect. The interviewers were so kind and made the whole experience really easy. The Interview process was a pretty continuous flow and was only spaced out based on how early I could make it to the office for an in person interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alliance Data (Columbus, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    There is an initial phone interview, and a second interview, which is in person. Very easy, relaxed, and personable interviewers. The phone interview is to get to know you a little, and ask questions about different situations you've been in. The typical interview questions. The second interview expands upon those questions and gives you a more detailed view of the company as well as a tour of the building. They then contact you to let you know if they decide to hire you and talk about the pay, etc. Very easy and relaxed. Just be personable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Alliance Data (Columbus, OH) in September 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview scheduled with HR manager in the Columbus office. It was the most awkward and strange "interview" I've ever had. First of all, she was incredibly unfriendly. She seemed annoyed to even be talking to me. Secondly there would be these long silences and a couple times I had to check to make sure she was still on the line. Lastly, I'm not sure she understood what she was asking or understood my answers. I work in SEM and she would ask me questions that were very non specific. If you've ever worked in SEM you know how broad that can be. I would try to answer her questions but it was quickly clear she wasn't interested in really getting an answer. Overall it seemed to me she didn't enjoy her job at all and just wanted to check off a task for the day.
