    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bannockburn, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Barilla America (Bannockburn, IL) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Early 2012 - Interview process went on for over 6 weeks.
    1st round - initial HR screening over phone (1 hour)
    2nd round - hiring manager & HR in person (3 hours)
    3rd round - hiring manager, area VP, and 2 others in person (5 hours)
    4th round - area VP and HR in person again (2 hours) [note this meeting came after being rescheduled several times at last second]
    After 10+ hours of interview, they informed me with a brief email that they were going to move forward with an internal candidate. This came as quite a surprise since I thought they would have vetted all internal candidates before offering the position externally.
    This process was tedious and unnecessarily drawn out. It was a great insight into a team/company that does not have the ability to make a decision.
