    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at First Niagara Financial (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Process was straight forward; spoke with HR represenative over the phone and set up the in person interview. After the interviews with several employees, HR contacted me to present and offer. I asked for two days to ponder the offer and then called the HR rep to decline.

    Reasons for Declining

    Salary and benefits (tuition reimbursement, vacation etc.) low.
