    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Great-West Financial (Denver, CO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    My interview process spanned three separate interviews- one over the phone, and two on-site interviews with various members of both the management and development team. All of the staff conducting interviews were senior-level management and senior-level developers. All staff were courteous, professional, and welcoming during the entirety of the process. Human Resources staff is communicative about the process, and I often received correspondence well in advance of when I anticipated I would hear back regarding setting up the next steps.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Great-West Financial (Overland Park, KS) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Extremely pleasant experience. I interviewed with 3 managers in the department at the same time. The managers had a prescribed set of questions to ask and then they opened up to my questions. The entire experience was definitely geared to a casual conversation as opposed to a pressure cooker.

    District Office Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Great-West Financial (Nashville, TN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was very pleasant and I actually enjoyed it. The recruiter was very friendly and helpful and my first interview was with the hiring manager and the second interview was with the client relationship manager and the pension benefits analyst. Their questions were easy enough to answer and not mind-blowing and it was a conversation, not dialog.

    Interview Questions

    • - Why did I want to leave my current position/company to work for them?
      - Describe a typical "work day" where I worked currently?
      - What type tasks do you enjoy doing most and those you like doing least?
      - Do you tend to work more toward group/team goals or your individual goals and which motivates you more to reach?
      - What type of management style do I prefer?
      - How do you learn best?
      That's all the questions I could remember. I know there were more, but 2 of the 3 interviews were more conversational to get a feel of how well we would work together since they knew I was qualified to do the job.

    Retirement Plan Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Great-West Financial (Denver, CO) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Overall basic. Had one phone interview, which was just a screening process, and 1 in person interview with a hiring manager and a call center manager. Their questions where a little more specific or detail oriented than most of the basic interview questions (strengths, weakness, short/long term goals). None of them were to tricky, just had to think a little bit about them since i had not heard most of them yet in previous interviews with other questions

    Junior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Great-West Financial.

    Interview

    The interview process was standard: phone screen with a recruiter, in-person with the hiring manager and next level manager, informal group meeting with the team (who seemed great). Everything after that was unbelievable. After extending an offer to me late Friday afternoon, they rescinded the offer on Monday because I didn't accept immediately. They claimed it showed "lack of excitement." Apparently they are looking for someone reactionary and opportunistic rather than rational and logical. The interview process took 16 days on their end, and apparently two days is too much for me to ask. Clearly integrity isn't valued at this company. The best I can say is that at least they revealed their true selves before I made the mistake of accepting the offer.

    Call Center Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milwaukee, WI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Great-West Financial (Milwaukee, WI) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview and then a group interview on-site. Application process included on-line testing. This was a behavioral based interview. Somewhat lengthly process just to work in a call center. Do your research on what it's like to work in a call center and then decide if you really want to go through the lengthly application and interviewing process.
