    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Western Union.

    Interview

    After the intial phone screen, the recruiter was not responsive for 2 weeks - I was not sure whether I made it to the next round or not. Eventually, 2 weeks later, the hiring manager reached out to me and schedule an onsite interview with me a week later. I think the onsite interview went well. However, I have not heard from anyone since.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Never got to a phone interview. So I can't comment on what might be asked.   Answer Question
