    Risk Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Declined Offer
    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.

    No Offer
    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.

    Escrow Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Radian Group.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me regarding this job. I had interviewed with company when they were under another name last year. A full year went by when this recruiter recently contacted me. Seems the position has been unfilled a full year. I'm more than qualified but company won't consider me. Guess they are not that desperate to fill position. I think it's age discrimination because I'm over 50.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were asked. They refused to interview me even though I meet the qualifications and the position has been open for a year. Age discrimination is alive and well.   Answer Question
