    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Experian (Schaumburg, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews and on-site visit Schaumburg. Had to create a presentation about a Dealership and another presentation about yourself. They had no monitor to do a presentation, in an hour we had to switch 3 rooms. I did have my presentation printed. I took a vacation day to fly there incurred expenses they said they would reimburse but did not. The sent an auto generated email instead of a personal phone call. This really makes me think why was every thinking of leaving my old job. Th

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Schaumburg, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The process took about 3-4 weeks. I was contacted by the talent acquisition team for a phone interview. It was simple and brief. I was contacted that same day for another phone interview with a hiring manager. It was relaxed, friendly and nothing out of the ordinary. After that I was invited for an in person interview where I was supposed to meet with 4 people but it ended up only being 2.

    Inside Sales Analyst Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Experian (Schaumburg, IL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I researched their company (located in Dublin) applied through their job board on the above position that was located in IL. The recruiter called me to set up a phone interview, and eventually left a message, as she was located in Phoenix, and was the talent recruiter for three states, IL, TX, and NJ. The phone interview was for 1/2 hour, and her questions were forthright and high level to answer succinctly. During the interview, she mentioned that there was a base and commission salary if you hit certain criteria during the year on outside accounts.

    Interview Questions

    • When I pressed further on the commissions attached to the position, which was not listed on the online application, she was a bit abrupt interrupting me that this was listed. The position that I applied for was Inside Sales Analyst position, not the Inside Sales Account Executive positions that were posted two weeks later in early June.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Experian (Schaumburg, IL).

    Interview

    The job posting was made available in February. I had one or two phone interviews with the company recruiters which basically went over my experience against the requiremenets for the role. Then I met with the hiring manager, that person's manager and another person on the team. Questions were fairly straightforward. The entire process was quite lengthy. Applied in February and didn't start until the end of August. Not sure if that's changed since.

    Negotiation

    I tried to negotiate vacation time and the recruiter made a mistake and told me that it wouldn't be a problem. It was since they're on a fixed vacation schedule for all employees based on tenure but it worked out in my favor in the way of an additional bump in salary and a higher bonus structure that was grandfathered in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Schaumburg, IL).

    Interview

    Interview with Network Engineer Manager based in Texas (he will fly out to see you if you're not local). Like most technical positions, be prepared to get quized on any technical qualifications you have listed. They will have read your resume and prepared technical quections accordingly to access your knowledge. Also, if you have pictures of configuring equipment or your old data center, anything to give some reassurance that you have indeed provisioned lots of equipment- bring it. It speaks volumes and many candidates hired revealed that they also had pictures illustrating their accomplishements.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview was mostly technical, though a lot more is being assesed such as how you present yourself, how humble you are, how honest and forth coming with your limitations.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Schaumburg, IL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online on Tuesday, received call from Experian recruiter that evening to schedule for a 30 min phone interview with her the next day. Did the phone interview w/the recruiter on Wednesday. I thought it went well. She said she would get back to me once she has the meeting with the managers on Thursday to set up a time for the phone interview w/them and would call me on Friday. She never called me Friday. So I sent an email following up on Monday, and she said the meeting was cancelled and resceduled for that week. Friday she got back to me and said they decided to pursue another candidate. Didn't even get a chance for the phone interview with the manager for that position.
