    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Discover.

    Interview

    It was an easy process. I received a phone call after submitting the application from one of the recruiters. She just asked me about my experience and gave me more information about the role. She then scheduled the second interview with the hiring manager a few days later. The second interview was also pretty seamless, just more questions about my retail background and my experiences with that. I received an offer after the interview.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Discover (Chicago, IL) in May 2020.

    Interview

    The job description was misleading, the asked for a software engineer but were tricking people into accepting Dev-OPS positions with production support for a software developer role.
    I was given a verbal offer after 5 rounds of interviews on various days, but even after receiving the verbal offer I had HR set up an interview with the hiring manager to discuss what the expectations of the role are. She seemed cranky, and was unhappy about the questions and pulled back the offer after it was given.
    Be careful with this company, and I ask management to investigate this issue.

    It was smooth and regular interview process, but was cheated in terms of role term and level, and hopefully it can be made up later. People who did this should take his responsibility

    Full Stack Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Discover (Riverwoods, IL).

    Interview

    Overall they seem like nice and smart people, and I didn't really have a bad experience, there was just one thing that left me with a bad taste in my mouth...

    The engineering hiring manager told me he liked to build a diverse team, which did not seem to be the case based on everyone I talked to and saw walking around the engineering office. I would have been able to give an alternate perspective as he suggested. Regardless, as the interview concluded, he asked me if my parents worked at the company and implied that something like that was the only way someone like me would have gotten an engineering interview in the first place. I knew at that moment I was not going to get an offer.

    I am not too qualified at this point in my young career but was proud of how I presented myself relative to my experience. I am not sure if the stereotype that seemed to be placed on me had anything to do with their decision, it very likely could not have been that way, but it's something to be mindful of.

    The process was very long. It took about a total of 4 hours and you meet with all members of the team. However it was very laidback and felt more like a conversation
