    Financial Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at University of Michigan (Dearborn, MI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Multiple multi-panel interviews as well as one on ones with leadership. The interviews took place over a few weeks. They seemed to have a bad experience with a previous employee so the questions were geared toward how I would handle a situation where there was a financial discrepancies, gossipy co-workers, and dealing with mundane tasks. They would ask a few questions regarding my skills but most of it would revolve around specific behaviors. It was odd to have to answer to questions about situations that I had never really found myself in because I have a good work ethic or there are already checks and balances in place to prevent them. They also insisted on speaking to a current supervisor as a reference even though I had let them know it would compromise my current job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    First, I'd like to state that I did *not* get this interview as result of a referral.

    I applied remotely, so it ended up being a Skype interview. I met with HR first. Asked a lot of typical questions ("Why U of M?" "Are you prepared to move right away?" "Strengths/weaknesses", etc.). The person I interviewed with seemed very interested in what I had to say and provided a lot of feedback. The interview immediately went into a second with the supervisor for the position I'd applied for. He asked a lot of the same questions, explained a lot about the position, etc. Overall, it was a really good experience. Both interviewers were personable and seemed genuinely interested in me as a candidate. When I ended up getting passed over for an internal candidate, I was sent a very nice email encouraging me to apply to the department again in the future, which I most definitely will do.
