    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barney & Barney.

    Interview

    There was very basic questioning. There were three rounds of interviews first with HR, then with the team supervisor and lastly, you have a group interview with team. Corporate culture is very important so the interview method makes a lot of sense.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Barney & Barney (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online. There was an excel test, personality test and a one on one before meeting and interviewing with team members and supervisors. They used pretty traditional methods and questions which I appreciated after having some very quirky and non-traditional interview questions asked from other companies.

    Benefit Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Barney & Barney (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    First interview was with a recruiter. We went over the job description, expectations, and my current role. The recruiter asked for my current salary. I was foolish enough to be honest. She informed me the range would be "quite a significant bump" for me. She quoted a range 7-10k more than my current salary.

    The next interview was with a Manager and another Benefit Analyst. Basic interview questions, asked about my current job duties etc...

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I received an offer a week later that was lower than the range the recruiter quoted. I tried to negotiated for the range the recruiter quoted but was denied because I was honest about my current salary. The offer was only 3k more than I was currently making and 4k under the recruiter's quoted range. The negotiations were unsuccessful. They would not honor the quoted salary range. I can't work for an employer who doesn't value honesty nor honor a ranged quoted by a recruiter so I respectfully declined the offer.

    Many takeaways and lessons learned.
