    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thrivent Financial (Appleton, WI) in March 2017.

    Interview

    After applying online you will be asked for a phone interview, phone interview was not with the original interviewer. After phone interview you sit down with team leader(s). Very professional setting. Almost felt it was over before it began.

    Mutual Funds Service Professional Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thrivent Financial (Appleton, WI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter promptly reached out to me after I submitted my application online to do a 10 minute phone interview in order to qualify me as a canidate. Within a week I had an interview with the hiring managers. The interview was fairly generic with mostly situation based questions. The recruiter followed up weekly after the interview.

    IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Appleton, WI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thrivent Financial (Appleton, WI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First I had a phone call interview that lasted about a half hour. Then I was brought in a week later for an interview day. I had 4 different interviews with 4 different department managers. They told me that I would hear back from them the next week. I heard nothing. I contacted them two weeks later, then I got an automated email saying I did not get the job. Very poor communication, and the HR person was very misleading.

    Principal Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Thrivent Financial (Minneapolis, MN) in August 2016.

    Interview

    'What do you want to be when you grow up'. That was the question one of the job interviewers asked, her first question to me as a matter of fact. That was the worst but not the only goofy drivel question of the interview. The fact that this was for a upper level position, not an entry level position and I have been in the industry quite a while as they knew from looking at my resume, made the sophomoric nature of the questions rather perplexing.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Thrivent Financial in August 2016.

    Interview

    The response time was swift and the interview was a panel, situational type concept; which was nice from a time-saving perspective. I felt like they knew what they were looking for and asked probing questions to see if I was truly a good fit.

    Vendor Relations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thrivent Financial (Minneapolis, MN) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The application process is fairly simple, it is getting to the interview and then having the position come down and put on hold. Comfortable atmosphere and more of a conversation then actual questions.

    Payroll Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Thrivent Financial (Minneapolis, MN) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Typical interview process, making it to final round. Then it was radio silence. I've emailed both the recruiter and the hiring manager and get no response. Considering I took time out of two days to meet with several people at Thrivent, I would think they would at least have the courtesy to respond with even a simple "thanks for your interest, but we went with another candidate".
