    QA Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Easy interview, with few technical questions. Mostly questions about experience and familiarity with their tech stack. I expected to be given test scenarios and get asked about TDD and other methodologies, but they seemed more interested in how to manage and lead a group of testers onsite and offshore.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle complaints from business about software quality?   Answer Question

    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ally Financial (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    3 Phone interviews - 1 with the recruiter and 2 with the managers.

    I got the feeling they have problems with teams not getting along and with people managing their workloads. The last manager I met with was very abrasive and almost rude. She was late - then she rushed me to finish the interview cause she had other things to tend to. I was unable to continue asking questions regarding the position and culture of the company. That type of treatment I felt was a small insight of how they manage people.

    I think as a candidate - when making a career move to a new company, the management team should schedule accordingly to meet and talk professionally with potential employees.

    This position was also paying less than my current position with a direct competitor.

    Interview Questions

    • All situational based interview questions - basically targeting to see how you will react in different time sensitive or confrontational situations.   1 Answer

    Customer Service Team Lead Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ally Financial (Jacksonville, FL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Applied. Received a call requesting a person interview, and was scheduled for two separate interviews in the same day. 1st Interview was a panel interview so to speak (2 interviewers). Interviewers clearly requested “STAR” responses = behavioral based interviews. Difficulty was that questions didn’t appear to relate to job function well, as it was described in interview, additionally job posting (including job title) led me to believe position was more of a mentor or team coach for a customer service team (this is a team/people management position). I’m NOT good at interviews although I’m an excellent manager and employee. 2 interviewers were mostly stone faced and the female was obviously not interested. After initial interview, they asked to have a minute and stepped out of the glass interview room to converse. 5 minutes later they returned, and one of them escorted me to HR for the 2nd interview. 2nd interview went better but questions were at times repetitive. It’s been several weeks with no answer. I’m disappointed, however hope this helps those looking to seek a job with ally.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ally Financial in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my college, and was given an on-campus interview. The interviewer was very informal and only went through my resume; there were absolutely no technical questions. Afterwards, I had a phone call with a team lead, which was also purely behavioral. I think they read through my resume and saw the classes I had completed, but I thought it was very odd that they did not send me any coding challenges. I got another call the same day saying that I got the offer.
