    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Great-West Financial.

    Interview

    4 phone interviews, 30 minutes each. Then no word for about 2-3 weeks. Finally, another HR recruiter took over and told me I was still in the running and a decision would be made in 1-2 weeks. Never heard back; not even the courtesy of an email saying "we have not chosen you for the role." I feel they should have gotten back to me to let me know I didn't get the job.

    Nothing crazy. My application was done online, Recruiter reached out to me for phone interview. I was brought in for a formal interview. Process took maybe two weeks.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Overland Park, KS
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Great-West Financial (Overland Park, KS) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Application followed by interview. I applied online and was contacted by a Recruiter.

    The interview took place in KC. I was told the role was open to back-fill an individual who was leaving he company. The interview concluded with the promise of timely feedback ("we should have an update sometime in the next couple of weeks). It has been a full month, with no follow-up of any kind. I called after 3 weeks requesting an update, and wrote an email as well. No response.

    It's clear to me that the Recruiter has no intention of following through with the original commitment. At this point, I've moved on to another opportunity. It's disappointing as I work daily to improve the reputation of those in my line of work. This is one of the biggest pet peeves I hear about. I felt that my time and energy was not valued, and I will certainly not be applying to them ever again.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Great-West Financial in April 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview with 3 hiring managers. They asked a few questions but requested that I give detailed answers. They certainly seem tired and not very friendly or accommodating. I didn't have a good feel for this Company. They seemed scattered.
