    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Western Union (Denver, CO) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email for a phone interview. The email had a link to setup an appointment, but the link didn't work. I followed up by sending an email and calling the recruiter (voicemail) and didn't hear anything back from the recruiter for a month. After a month, the recruiter called me and said he didn't see my email or voicemail and wanted to try again to setup an interview. We agreed on a time and place over the phone. The day came and once again there was no phone call or email from the recruiter. Once again, I reached out by email and phone (voicemail) to the recruiter. I still haven't heard back from the recruiter. I know the HR department there is busy, but this is a little ridiculous. I'm not sure if I really want to work at a place that can't even show up for a 30 minute phone interview. I really liked what I saw from the job description, but the HR department really dropped the ball.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Union (Denver, CO) in December 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me and didn't call me back after I left two separate messages. I then reapplied for the position and a new recruiter phone screened me. Then had a phone interview with the hiring manager and didn't hear back anything after reaching out to the recruiter twice AND after they stated they would have an answer back to me. Overall, it was a very disappointing experience.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Western Union (Englewood, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    First, phone interview with HR, and then face to face interview with a manager including skill test. I had a second round interview with other managers. You have to tell them what you can do and what you want to do. Also, you don't need to make a story but you have to show your positive attitude.

    Director of Enterprise Project Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, CO
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Western Union (Englewood, CO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by external recruiter, then forwarded to company. After a few weeks of waiting, phone interview seemed to have gone very well and the process moved very quickly from there and met several people on site in Englewood. Next steps were to be a decision to move forward as the background check process was underway. That's where things went off the rails. First, there was a reorganization and the position moved to report to a peer-level, then more delays as they decided what to do next. Finally, after about 6 weeks, the role had moved once again from an Enterprise Role to a role beneath the CIO covering only technology, and the CIO wanted to completely restart the process and include former colleagues.

    It was overall very chaotic with a "hurry-up-and-wait" overtone throughout. What was a very well-organized process became extremely disorganized very quickly, and the original reasons for the role quickly became irrelevant. The company seems to realize that they're at a critical juncture for their products and have competition chasing them, but doesn't seem able to act to address internal politics. I bowed out from the process -- I had another offer that went from initial conversation to confirming role in the time they took to decide on reorganizing, and accepted that.

    Compliance & Fraud Analyst, GAI Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Western Union (Englewood, CO) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Probably one of the easiest (and stress free) interviews that I have ever endured. My supervisor and her colleague interviewed me for approximately 1 hour.

    I recently joined Western Union because my wife and I relocated from Washington, DC last summer and was immediately impressed with the professional interface with WU recruiters at the Buckley AFB job Fair during Veteran’s Day. In addition, the inaugural Open House for Veterans made me feel truly ‘home’ at WU.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Western Union (Denver, CO) in September 2015.

    I received a referral from a former co-worker. He gave me the contact information for the staffing company placing contractors into this position. I called and set up a phone interview for the same evening. The phone interview lasted approximately 10 minutes and then I was asked to come in for a formal interview the next day. At the conclusion of the 1 on 1 interview I was given an offer which I accepted. The on-line application process was easily completed. Once background check and drug screening were completed I was given a start date.
