    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Discover (West Valley City, UT) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Phone Interview then in-person interview then hiring manager interview. The recruiters are very helpful and want to understand what i was looking for. They actually found another job that fit my personality more than the one i originally applied for. I have quite a few friends that work at Discover and they say it is a good company.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Discover (Chicago, IL) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Submitted as an employee referral and was contacted quick but it took more than a week to schedule a phone screen. The call started late and the Talent Acquisition Staff Member conducted a very poorly executed interview. Starting the interview out with what questions do you have about the role. Then was unable to answer any of the questions and when a response was provided it was not a confident response. Then the individual proceeded to indicate she needed to "check some boxes off" and proceeded to just ask a series of questions that clearly were intended to complete some form. Then asked very little about me or how my experience was related to to the role. Overall this was not a good experience.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Discover (Riverwoods, IL) in April 2018.

    Interview

    1. HR emailed general screening questions about salary expectations, work status etc.
    2. Phone Interview with Hiring Manager
    -It went really well. We talked about the role and my background. He talked about team culture and I felt he was really easy going and he immediately said look out for an email regarding the next round
    --HR called the next day asking about availability for next week and said the interview format would be general behavioral questions as we provide packets to all the interviewers.
    3. On-site with 4 Managers(45 mins each) including Hiring Manager
    -1st with Hiring Manager, we picked up from last phone round and talked about general stuff. He asked simple behavioral questions. Very nice guy and seemed like you can really work in his team
    -2nd with Manager from Pred Analytics team. Worst possible human being you can ask for. He didn't care for format of the interview(which HR said we have strict policy for interviewers to follow). He was so rude throughout the 45 mins and never cared for any of my answer. Took out his phone while I was answering and solving a case.
    3rd with main Manager of the group. Again general behavioral questions and simple data mapping case on whiteboard. He had his poker face on so couldn't play off of his reactions.
    4th with Manager from Business side. He was a very humble guy and talked about early days of his career and how he came to Discover. Asked simple behavioral questions about conflict resolutions, work prioritization etc.

    All in all the Hiring Manager and last interviewer were only positive in terms of their enthusiasm for working at Discover or that particular group.
