    IT Operations Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Austin, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Leading up and through the interview process everything was great. It wasn't till AFTER the interview that things went south. It should be noted that my interview was actually with CSID which was just acquired by Experian. That being said, I was told that they were on an aggressive time line to get the position filled and then they went radio silent. Told me they were working on filling it and would get back to me next week. Crickets. So I followed up... told me they'd get back to me soon... crickets... I finally gave up and just realized this isn't a place I wanted to work... if I was supposedly one of their two final candidates you'd think they'd pay me the courtesy of letting me know they were going in a different direction or tell me what the deal was... I get that I may not have been a fit... But I should have been told something... any way, I finally, as a courtesy to them, emailed to withdraw and even explained why... oh, and guess what, they didn't respond to that one either... Incredibly disrespectful to not at least follow up and say they were going in a different direction... no amount of money could get me to work at a place that treats candidates like this...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Allen, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for Experian during the middle of September (Sept. 14th to be exact). During the application Experian makes it clear that you have to pass a Credit Check in order to be considered for anow interview. Wasn't sure how I would do I have some negative marks on my credit, but my is still considered to be in fair standing. I received an unexpected phone call from a recruiter on Oct 3rd. He asked me if I had time to do a phone interview now or if another time needed to be scheduled. I told him now was perfect phone interview lasted about 30 minutes Recruiter asked your typical interview questions to see what kind of thought process you have and how great your customer service skills are. He also went over the pay, training schedule, and the work schedule after training. Then I was scheduled for an onsite interview. Oct 4th. I had my interview with the team lead and the department supervisor. The interview lasted al most an hour. I felt confident leaving the building. 25 minutes later on my way home I received a call from the recruiting Manager saying I got the job.

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with three executives. First was indifferent and appeared as if he did not want to be there. Second was confusing and hard to build rapport with. The reason why this interview was not entirely negative was because the third executive was very kind and appeared to actually want to get to know me, rather than quiz me or get in my head. Weird experience overall - however, a valuable learning experience as well...

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Experian.

    Interview

    Easy process. Phone screen with recruiting, then with Manager. Then, a physical interview with team and an offer 2 weeks later. Was a great easy process. I was surprised there wasn't weeks of back and forth. I let them know what I wanted upfront and they explained if they were able to accommodate my requests or not. No silly politics to worry about.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Experian (Irvine, CA) in August 2016.

    Four questionnaires (attitude, personality, numerical and verbal), three telephone interviews and one panel interview in person. I had great telephone conversations with the hiring manager, senior sales person and hr. I created a executive presentation, personal presentation and a first 90 days presentation. Everything felt very good. HR called me back and told me that they expected to make me an offer but that was not the case. Sad.
