Senior Associate Interview

Declined Offer

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Discover (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

Interview

There was an initial screening with HR. Later 2 rounds of phone interviews with Hiring manager and team member. Later, 4 round of interview onsite. The interviewers explained the process and the interviews went well. Even after 6 weeks of the interview, I haven't heard back from the recruiter. They don't reply to your emails or calls. The hiring manager informed that a decision will be made within 2 weeks. Looks like 2 weeks means 6 weeks to them

    Interview

    HR contact to verify personal information and basic background and past work experience on resume, then arrange on site interview with hiring manager and cross functional team managers. No specific assigned room for interview. Quick turn around on providing interview results.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Discover (Riverwoods, IL).

    Interview

    Applied Online- recruiter called the next day, took my details and scheduled interview with the hiring manager.
    Hiring Manager asked basic behavioural questions and about my background, nothing technical.
    Was scheduled for a 2 hour in person interview at their facility.
    Was interviewed by 5 people and the questions were pretty simple and easy. They seemed nice and also talked about a lot of other things like their office building, cafeteria etc.
    Technical questions were very very basic and behavioural questions as usual.
    I followed up after a week but was told decision is not yet made.
    Followed up again and they told me you are under consideration and will let you know.
    Almost 2 months passed and got an automatic reply that we are moving ahead with other candidates.
    I had 4 other offers by then and it did not really mattered. I wonder why they took so long to just say a No.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Discover (Riverwoods, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    First round : phone interview 1 hour hr and little technical.
    Second round : In person interview. HR project Manager( while showing discover campus and explaining benefits) + Technical interview for 1 hour

    They offered me different package senior developer instead of team lead as there are multiple positions.

    First round: Technical.
    Secound round: HR

    HR question:

    I am senior developer I answered all technical interviews questions.

    HR round is only 15 min. Its all depends on HR, if they feel you can embedded in culture they will offer.
