    Digital Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Riverwoods, IL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discover (Riverwoods, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Completed a phone interview, then a month later visited the corporate office in Riverwoods, IL for an in-person interview. Discover offered to fly me & cover hotel since I was from out of town. I drove instead so they covered gas. Very nice of them and appreciated. The interview lasted 4 hours. Met a series of people from Director, to Supervisor, to Managers to the team from different departments. All were very nice. Questions were easy. They were more focused on describing to me what the job would be, and my experience in similar roles. The only issue was in logistics with the conference room HR has placed the interview in. The room I was supposed to be in was not available due to office renovation, so they had me in an impromptu room which made it a bit difficult for everyone else to find the right room I was in.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Discover.

    Interview

    Phone screen with the recruiter, followed by a phone screen with the Hiring Manager. This is the second time Discover has reached out to me through LinkedIn for vacancies within their organization. I am highly disappointed by the lack of professionalism of their hiring team.

    KYC Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Albany, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discover (New Albany, OH) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Process started off great. Applied online, contact by a recruited who appeared as though she was helpful. Scheduled an interview a week after applying and attended the interview at the New Albany, OH location. The interview was set for 3 separate interviews with different managers. Interviewers were pleasant enough, one was rather bland and clearly had no personality beyond reading the standard HR questions. After the interview I was asked to complete a writing sample. This was a narrative to summarize an Excel Pivot Table. The assignment seemed simple enough. A week later I received a no thanks email from the HR recruiter with no feedback. I emailed back asking for feedback as I felt I really fit well and the interviews went well. I noticed today that the position had been re posted to the career website. Having received no feedback, I feel disappointed and quite frankly annoyed because I took time off work to come and interview for an entire morning.

    AML Compliance Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Discover (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online, the HR person asked for some basic information (such as what was my current salary), and then my interview was setup.

    I interviewed with four different people. One of the managers seemed concerned that these AML compliance jobs would be automated away, so I would suggest not mentioning anything about technology. The two of the other managers seemed fine. They were just asking me straightforward questions that you could answer if you ever worked in the industry before.

    The Senior Manager really came a crossed as the biggest jerk I've ever met. He was literally belittling and demeaning me right after he walked into the room based on what he thought of the school I went to. Good luck dealing with him.

    The next step is a simple writing assessment.
