    Collections Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Exton, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citadel Federal Credit Union (Exton, PA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    HR was very friendly, The interview with the assistant manager was intimidating due to their lack of experience in the role. From a personality stand point I can see an issue with the assistant manager if hired. The manager of the department seemed straight forward but also hard to read. He seemed as if he "was in character" during the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Citadel Federal Credit Union.

    Interview

    Simple interview. They seem pretty desperate for talent. I felt more like they were trying to sell me on the company than see if I was a good fit for the role. I interviewed with a few Sr. Manager's and I knew more about the area I was being interviewed in than they did. I got the feeling that several of the questions they were asking were real life problems they had that they did not know how to fix.

    Senior Financial Services Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenixville, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Citadel Federal Credit Union (Phoenixville, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Being that I was already an employee and that this was an internal interview, my interview was probably different than someone outside the company would have. Overall the process was easy. The manager and assistant manager of the branch were the interviewers. The interview was fun and I had confidence that I would get the position.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Exton, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Citadel Federal Credit Union (Exton, PA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Very smooth, impressive introduction to the company, beautiful corporate center!
    I was called by an HR representative and was then invited to interview with management. Two interviews back to back. If they think you are talented you will hear back!

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard questions. The only thing unexpected was not being grilled for sales numbers. In my previous life, I felt like I walked around with a scarlet numbner on my forehead which was my sales goal and the higher the number the better chances I had of moving up. They actually want to know about your interpersonal and coaching skills because face it if you are a borderline sociopath who only cares about numbers you have a better chance at TD bank than Citadel.
      They like to get to know you and your experiences. The questions are not difficult just be honest! Citadel likes a well rounded applicant, someone that is good in operations, coaching and buisness development. Their expectations are very fair. They also do a background check and will not just take anyone off the street because they need help.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I accepted what I was offered. It was pretty simple. I gave them the range I wanted and they met my minimum requirements.
