    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Downers Grove, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at HAVI (Downers Grove, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I talked to the HR person for a phone interview and then had an interview set up with the manager, her manager, the VP and then a quick wrap up with the HR person again. The interview was 30 minutes with each person, one right after the other. After the interview, they had me do a wonderlic test. I was told I would hear back either way and they were probably going to make a decision within 2 days. Everyone was very nice and it seemed to go well. The huge negative was that I didn't hear back until 2 weeks after the interview. This was only after contacting the HR person three times for an update as well as the manager once.

    Interview

    The process was pretty typical. First I applied online, didn't hear back for months, then received a request for a phone interview. At the end of the phone interview, was asked to do an in person interview. In person interview was first with the HR lady, then with the hiring manager. HR lady was kind of cold, but the hiring manager was really great.

    IT Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at HAVI (Downers Grove, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was condescending and offensive. The HR Department had no personality, I felt like I was interrogated. One person sat there and ate peanuts the whole time & I continued to sit there and answer questions while the small room filled with the smell of hot breath & peanut. Very rude.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at HAVI (Downers Grove, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Phone screen was very pleasant and thorough. Recruiter was knowledgeable and provided good information. I then went in and did interview with multiple managers - one co-manager, direct manager and senior director. Fairly structured and thorough; Sr. Director asked most structured questions. She was probably the one that I did not connect with as easily.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HAVI (Downers Grove, IL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Following a phone screening I was brought on site for a marathon interview session. First with my direct manager, then with some peer team members, then with the director over my department, then with the VP over my area, and then back to my direct manager again. Between interviews a problem solving test was administered, the results of which were never revealed.

    The director with which I interviewed was intentionally abrasive, as I found out later, in an effort to unnerve candidates. Had it not been for the geniality of the other interviewers I might not have taken the job based on that interaction.

     All in all I was being interviewed for between three to four hours.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HAVI (Downers Grove, IL) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The only thing that was a little out of the ordinary was they made me take a Wonderlic test. My recruiter didn't tell me that was part of the process. Other than that it was pretty standard, nothing out of the ordinary. Pretty typical panel interview.
