Discover – Why Work For Us?

Work for a company you can feel good about
. In 1986, we introduced our cash rewards credit card. It was innovative based on one simple, yet very important idea—that our customers deserve to feel appreciated; that we owe them the best experience possible. Since then, we’ve continued to be innovative—relentlessly pursuing better customer financial solutions and holding each solution up against the question: “Is this good for the customer?” If this makes sense to you—if it fits your vision about what a company should be—we want to talk to you.

Start enjoying great benefits Day 1 — On the day you start, you are able to take advantage of benefits like top-notch medical, dental and vision coverage, a 401(k) with a generous company match, and even tuition reimbursement and an amazing employee referral program.

At Discover, you get more than a paycheck—you get a sense of belonging. That’s because we’ve got a casual, friendly atmosphere that’s big on getting things done and making a difference for customers and communities. In fact, every year, our employees give back by donating thousands of dollars and volunteer hours helping worthy causes, including building local playgrounds. Plus, we celebrate diversity through our many Employee Resource Groups that give employees ways to support each other and promote inclusion. If this sounds like a place you’d be proud of, come talk to us.

Discover Financial Services is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran status, among other things, or as a qualified individual with a disability.

    KYC Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New Albany, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Discover (New Albany, OH) in September 2017.


    Process started off great. Applied online, contact by a recruited who appeared as though she was helpful. Scheduled an interview a week after applying and attended the interview at the New Albany, OH location. The interview was set for 3 separate interviews with different managers. Interviewers were pleasant enough, one was rather bland and clearly had no personality beyond reading the standard HR questions. After the interview I was asked to complete a writing sample. This was a narrative to summarize an Excel Pivot Table. The assignment seemed simple enough. A week later I received a no thanks email from the HR recruiter with no feedback. I emailed back asking for feedback as I felt I really fit well and the interviews went well. I noticed today that the position had been re posted to the career website. Having received no feedback, I feel disappointed and quite frankly annoyed because I took time off work to come and interview for an entire morning.
