    Human Resources Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I didn’t actually make it to an interview. A recruiter reached out to me asking if this was a position I’d be interested in and to give her a few days/times I’d be available to talk more. I replied back letting her know that I was interested and gave her a few suggestions for my availability. I never heard back from her. Tried reaching out a couple more times and was totally ignored. If this is hire they treat candidates who they reached out to then I can’t imagine the joy they must be to work with.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Desert Financial Credit Union (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Very cold - hands off. I was given notice for a 4 day window to complete the interview via email. They used an automated one-way video interview, instead of taking the time to call me personally. The video interview disconnected more than once and I had to get help from the third party company's technical support. Then the third party company sent me an email thanking me for the interview. I never heard another word from the company. As this company holds my checking, savings and money market funds, I am appalled at the way I was treated as an applicant. Is this impersonal culture condoned? If that is the case, maybe I dodged a bullet, but would have at least appreciated a call or email letting me know I was not selected.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Desert Financial Credit Union (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Impersonal. Automatic email request for interview through a third party video interview company. Actual interview also was a one way interview, verbally responding to spoken and written questions. Once the video interview was completed nobody ever got back to me from the employer.

    Senior CopyWriter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Desert Financial Credit Union (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online, initial email contact, HR phone interview, then in-person appointment with hiring manager. Had 30 minutes with Creative Director and another 60 minutes including VP Marketing. Good Q&A, background aligned with needs, etc. Declined a few days later with one of the oddest rejection letters I have seen (i.e. pass on you but we are still looking). The job has reappeared in an anonymous listing with a completely different set of qualifications. Of all the departments expected to properly convey their needs in writing, one would expect it to be no problem for the Marketing Department. Unprofessional and a complete disappointment.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Desert Financial Credit Union (Phoenix, AZ) in February 2018.

    Interview

    They will make you perform a task to get hired by either presenting, showing a portfolio, or take a test. They are not consistent with each applicant. I have seen them use different interview questions and different process on applicants after I was hired there.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Desert Financial Credit Union (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process was relatively easy. At first you do an application online. From there if you meet the qualifications that they are looking for, they will do an phone interview. Doing well from that, you will then go and do an in person interview. Once the interview process is finished, they will either contact the HR department, and say rather they want to extend the job offer to you. You are then called offered the job, if accepted you will then be placed in training classes.
