    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at UW Credit Union (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    There was a phone interview with scripted questions, although they weren't the usual scripted questions. It was focused on what you'd do given a certain scenario. Later, I had an in person interview with two people that was much more casual. It seemed like I already had the position when I walked in.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UW Credit Union.

    Interview

    it took about a month in total. There were two interviews, one phone interview and one in person. After that they gave me a project to take home so that they can see my work. They give you a week from your interview to complete it and send it back. From there they review it and make a decision. That part usually takes about a week.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at UW Credit Union.

    Interview

    The interviewing process consisted of an in person interview with three current managers. Interviews are nerve wrecking in general, but when you have to interview in front of three managers it's even worse. The questions they ask are meant to be difficult, and meant to get you to think outside the box. I found that the interview was one of the most difficult interview I've ever been too.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UW Credit Union.

    Interview

    Submit resume and cover letter online, phone interview, in-person interview. The phone interviewer will ask why you are interested in UW Credit Union. In addition they will ask what your personal core values are. They are looking for employees that have similar personal values as their own. Study up on the UW Credit Union core value.
    The in person interview is fairly laid back and conversational. The questions are geared to see if you have a helpful nature and have a 'team player' mentality. They will have you do role plays on selling a company or product you are passionate about. This is a measurement of your ability to explain and consult.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UW Credit Union (Milwaukee, WI) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I spoke with UWCU at a UW Madison Career Fair and I was excited that they do a lot of promotion from within and work with you to build your skills as you go. I applied for the position online and referenced the manager I spoke to at the Career Fair. A week or two later I got an email saying they wanted to set up a phone interview with someone in HR. At the beginning of the call he said he was interviewing a lot of people and would let me know within 10 days. He read off a list of questions and after each response it would be silent minus him typing. i asked about their preformance review process and he got really excited to tell me all about that because it is a big part of the UWCU culture. At the end of the phone call he did not want to wait to set up something with the managers and we scheduled it right away. I went into the branch and had an interview with two branch managers, they talked about which football teams they liked and asked what my hobbies were. I thought the interview went well and a week later i got an email saying they went in another direction.

    Interview

    I actually never interviewed for this job. I picked up functions in different positions and, over time, this role was created for me. Because of that I am basing my response off of interviews I was on the hiring end of.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at UW Credit Union (Madison, WI) in August 2011.

    Interview

    It was extremely behavior and core values focussed. They were more concerned with asking questions about how you have reacted to situations than what you would do. They ask for examples. They also value a finding the right people than all the correct experiences. Much of the leadership have read first Break All the Rules and Good to Great. I would google those books if you are not aware of the content before interviewing. I wouldn't quote the book just understand what they value as an organization.
