    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Western Union in September 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter. Got Manager interview a couple months later.
    Interview went well he asked me to create user stories for improving app experience. Homework took a couple hours I sent it in. Never heard back. I followed up a couple days. Recruiter called me to say they decided not to go forward...they had never looked at the homework. I had used a bit.ly link and they never clicked on it.
    They asked me to do an assignment and never even looked at it. Wasted my time and demonstrated they aren't a company I want to work with.

    Interview

    Very Easy. They pull you into a room and ask you about your past work. Most managers don't really know how to interview. Just be confident and keep this in mind.

    Manager Interview

    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.

    I applied online via Glassdoor within days I was called by a Corp. recruiter. They did once over on my C.V. They then emailed me an appointment to an interview in Midtown Manhattan. I met with two people who handled the entry level hires. Once they realized that my skill set and experience was on the same level as their MD.( I have 31 experience in Capital Markets.) They gave me the old, "we will call you routine'.
