    Financial Analysis Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at BISSELL (Grand Rapids, MI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Like many companies nowadays, Bissell narrows down potential candidates through an initial phone interview. The initial phone interview was very laid back and mostly a way for myself to get to know the company better and for the company getting to know me. Both the phone and in person interviews were very engaging and more like having a conversation as opposed to a traditional interview. I have had interviews involving packets and being asked question after question, and this was nothing like that. When the initial date of my in person interview fell through, Bissell was very flexible offering alternatives including interviewing via Skype or changing the time and date. My interview consisted of 4 separate 30 minute interviews (back to back), one interview with two associates, and the remaining three one on one. Overall, I am very satisfied with the interview process conducted at Bissell and have not had a better interview experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BISSELL (Grand Rapids, MI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through Glassdoor.com and received an email response a week later to set up a phone interview. It was just a screening however the call turned into a pleasant conversation and lasted about 30 minutes. I was asked at the end of the phone interview to go to Grand Rapids to the headquarters for an onsite interview. The onsite interview consisted of 4, 30 minute interviews with 4 different members of the HR team. Each interviewer was very pleasant and easy to talk to. Again I found that my interviews ended up turning into great conversations where I ultimately learned a lot about the company and what they do. The interview process and strategy that I had gone through with BISSELL was by far my favorite. I received and email about a week later saying that they wanted to have one more final interview with me over the phone. 2 days after the final interview I was told that I was being offered the position. I appreciated the quick response time and comfortable vibes that I was given throughout each interview. I had an amazing experience throughout the entire process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BISSELL (Grand Rapids, MI) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Pre-screen via resume, followup phone interview where they gather additional information, followed by a formal application for employment and in-person interview(s). Phone interview was pretty tame, and the in-person one as well. Was presented with multiple hypothetical scenarios regarding purchasing activity and several "what would you do if..."
