    Digital Project Manager Interview

    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 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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Discover.

    Interview

    Due to living out of state, Discover flew me to Chicago/Riverwoods to interview. I had 4 interviews back to back. Everyone was very nice. While I did not get a tour of the campus, it seemed very nice. My last interview went until noon and my return flight home was booked for 2pm by Discover. While I made my flight, this was a very tight window and started feeling anxious about making it during my last interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Discover.

    Interview

    The HR recruiter emailed me with a set of questions, no phone call. Everything was done via email which I thought was odd. Once I received the job offer, she tried to low ball me, even though she was aware of what I wanted. I have heard some pretty awful things about the HR at Discover, especially the recruiters and the lack of talent they find. They need to beef up their HR department, people are fleeing left and right.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discover.

    The interview was relatively stress free. It was conducted one on one with a senior manager and separately with a local manager. Questions were straightforward and I did not feel like I had to answer any trick questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Discover.

    Interview

    First I was called by a recruiter. They asked basic questions. I was set up to meet that recruiter for an in person interview. They went more in depth on the role and questions about myself and my past work experience. I was then set up to meet the hiring manager.. Had the interview and instead of meeting with the hiring manager they met me with a team lead. Was advised will hear back within 48 hours and never heard anything since. Didn't know this is a company that is okay with ghosting candidates.

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

    Interview

    Applied mid-June, received a Callao it's a month to the day later. Recruiter was very nice and professional during screening. Received follow up a week later to do in-person interview. In-person was standard, scenario based questions. Job posting did differ from what they wanted, but I have no doubt I could do the job successfully.

    Linux Administrator Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Discover.

    Interview

    K. from HR reached out to me via Linkedin. She scheduled the initial phone screening (15 mins), and then asked me to email my resume if I decide to proceed. Couple days later I've replied back confirming my interest, but... since then 3 weeks of dead silence. Usually, this type of HR handling I would expect from headhunters and non-affiliated recruiters, but rarely get such unprofessional treatment from actual companies.

    Gradually I've raised my standards for responding to job inquires and now reject most of them from the start. The HR and recruiters cohorts do not recognize the damage they causing to their own industry and profession.
