    Short Interview.
    No time for self-introduction and just hit the questions as soon as the interview began.

    Summer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at First Data.

    Interview

    The first round was a behavioral phone call with the recruiter. It was 30 minutes talking about my previous experience. I had limited work experience because I was a student, so we talked about related project's I'd worked on. Then I had another behavioral phone call with the recruiting manager. Same idea as before, but I got more information about what I'd be doing if I got hired.

    Sales Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Got a bad vibe from the culture from the first follow up recruitment email sent. Turned off immediately.

    A simple title of “still interested in first data” with a body of “let me know if you want to talk”.

    Why wouldn’t I be interested, I applied and took the LONG assessment. It’s not like they were following up with me a hundred times, I was waiting on them.

    Anyway, the my assumption is that the whole process and company is unprofessional and doesn’t value employees

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at First Data.

    Interview

    One interview with boss over the phone. Not terribly strenuous or lengthy my boss seemed actually even remotely invested in what I thought so kudos to him and the company I suppose.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at First Data.

    Interview

    Nope, never again with this company, interviewer was very rude for one, didn’t look like he liked his job. I had a couple of questions and didn’t seem very knowledgeable on what he was saying. He told me straight up he didn’t know. Asked him another question and very rudely said did I answer your question and answered the question for me at that assuming that he did. As he hung up didn’t bother to say goodbye. Not very professional, looked like he just got out of bed. I wouldn’t t bother applying. Bad experience in all. Data first please make sure to retrain you staff.just FYI. Not to pleased on how the interviewer treated me. Thank you, Next!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Several phone calls, one Skype interview, one in-person interview. It wasn't that hard of a process, but it took almost 2 months between first interview and offer. However, I got to talk to a lot of different people which I liked.
