    Assistant Bank Examiner Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was two rounds, where I met with two individuals the first hour and two other individuals the second hour. They had questions already prepared in a sheet, and they were all behavioral questions. Within the two rounds they seemed very repetitive but I understood they all wanted to form their own opinion.

    Associate Information Security Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    One phone call with a team lead followed by an onsite interview. The phone call didn't have any technical questions, but more of a description of the job, me listing my skills, and then explaining how I could contribute in a meaningful way. The onsite interview didn't have any specific tech questions per se, more scenario questions. The people were super nice and the work sounded really cool - got the offer but had to turn it down for financial reasons. My only complaint was I had to pay to get to Chicago and wasn't offered any reimbursement.

    Entry Level Developer/QA Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied online then got an email from the HR guy, his first question was do you need sponsorship, because my name is arabic he automatically thought I am foreign..so this was the first racist and discriminatory move.
    It took this guy weeks to schedule an interview with the so called manager, during the call with this guy he first confused me with someone else, then he talked about
    Past experience, this guy did not sound knowledgeable yet he is a manager, this should tell you about this disgraceful institution.
    After that i didn't hear from HR, i had to contact this stupid guy, after he responded that the manager didn't feel like im a good match, note that this was for an entry level and I'm already an experienced developer.
    The bottom line this is a racist company, they are excluding minorities in fact they only hire white and Asians mostly.
    They have no respect for this country

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty basic questions about programming, interviewers were really nice and seemed considerate of responses. The overall atmosphere was better than you would expect, even though there was an interviewer who didn't seem too involved because he was on the phone. The interviewers were generally very nice though, and weren't overbearing or really intent on making the interviewee feel uncomfortable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and they called me in for an interview aprox 3 week later. The interviewers were 2 developers and 1 HR person. They asked me both technical and personality questions and were honest about the nature of the job. What was really unprofessional was that they never got back to me with a definite answer about whether I would be hired or not. I did follow up with my recruiter and received no answer. I found that really unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago in February 2016.

    Interview

    First round was form-based. Almost 3 months later, there was a short phone screening with some very basic questions (nothing very technical). That was as far as it got. It seemed like merely a formality, as though they already had the position filled. I suppose a late response is better than none at all.
