    Interview

    One phone interview and that was it. Other students got to visit the campus, but I was in China. They apparently don't invite International students for a campus visit. I still got the offer later, though.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dearborn, MI
    No Offer
    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. I interviewed at University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was very short, most of the question are technical related to projects and lab techniques. Job description did not match the requirements she was asking for while interviewing, I did answered all of them. There is no reply after the interview for feedback even after several followup emails, which I felt was not professional.
