    Interview

    Just a very basic and general phone screening. Questions about myself and why I would be a good fit, information about the company and the position. They said they would send me an excel test to take in a few days but that email never came, even after reaching out to them about not receiving it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FHLB Chicago.

    Interview

    I applied online and was sent an email that they wanted to interview me. They sent me a schedule of the interview process, which was from 2pm-5pm, meeting with 6 different people, each interview lasting 30 minutes. I was nervous about this but each interview was really relaxed and didn't last 30 minutes. So I usually waited in the interview room 5-10 minutes until the next interview. Everyone was really nice, and everyone asked the basic interview questions, nothing too tricky. Their office is downtown Chicago next to Millennium Park, nice office and is located on three floors.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FHLB Chicago (Chicago, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online. It was nothing out of the ordinary; just a resume, cover letter, and references. Within a few weeks, I received an email to arrange an interview. My interviewer, and eventual supervisor, arrived to the interview about 20 minutes late. It was pretty clear he had only been informed the interview was happening upon my arrival. He mainly asked about the experience on my resume, what i was interested in, and if I could use any particular analytic tools. The whole thing was fairly laid back. A few weeks later, I received my offer.
