    Operations Supervisor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rabobank (Santa Maria, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I received a call on a Tuesday for an in-person interview on the following Friday. The interview was a three person panel. Two of the people on the panel explained their positions, the third and also the main interviewer did not explain his position in the company - even after being asked directly. There was a follow-up call for potentially a second interview. The caller asked, "can you come in for an interview?" and did not expand if it was a second interview or if it was an initial interview for another position I had applied for. I could not make either time because there was very short notice (the following day).

    Data Warehouse Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roseville, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Rabobank (Roseville, CA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Spoke with the CIO of Rabobank about the job over the phone. Interview discuss how to build a successful data warehouse. The office was impressive, new building furniture. Nice location. Work culture appeared to be "cautious" as many people appear nervous about telling the truth.

    Interview was supposed to last one hour but the CIO could leave his iPhone long enough to discuss an one topic. much less evaluate skills. Our meeting was interrupted by others by several crisis.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you talk "up" to Senior Management   1 Answer
    • Can you build us a data warehouse yourself, with no help, no staff?   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    The CIO was rude and emotional. His attitude towards others was poor. Not the type of person I would report to. He talked more about his career than mine. He wanted a manager, but really he wanted a data warehouse developer/analyst/business intelligence/data modeler/architect. The pay was poor for the type of job. My assumption is that Rabobank believed that they could pick up cheap talent. Unfortunately every one they place in this position either is demoted or resigns.
