    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Radian Group (Laguna Niguel, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    They require you do a phone interview detailing all of your background, then they make you wait weeks. Then they give you a difficult test with trick questions and make you jump through hoops. If you pass the test then they set up a phone interview where again they ask you some of the same questions and more.30 yrs in this business, a hard working individual with superior knowledge who has even worked art FNMA on a contract stint but I wasn't good enough to hire on a contract basis. Since then I have received several calls from agencies trying to find people for Radian. I'm sure I dodged a bullet. Very disappointed in the process.

    Interview

    Invited for a Phone Screen a few weeks after applying. The conversation was rescheduled multiple times by the hiring manager and then this person called an hour late for the scheduled time. The entire time I felt like they already decided on a candidate

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Radian Group (New York, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I got the internship through a connection. Because of this, the hiring staff was very willing to work with me and get me set up and comfortable. The interview process did not really exist because of this connection and the way in which I was set up. Once I was on the phone for a quick screening, they essentially offered the job on the spot and within the week I was able to sign my acceptance.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Radian Group (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of two phone interviews and a final "super day", with 3 back-to-back interviews in-office. Phone interviews were straight-forward, going through basic qualifications and company info.
    Final interview(s):
    Person 1: Interview by someone in same position. Questions were more analytically-based, difficult, but as long as you showed your process it was fine
    Person 2: Would-be direct boss. Lots of brain teaser questions, interview was much more conversational.
    Person 3: 'General Manager' type guy. Behavioral interview, straight-forward.
