Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

  1. Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nelnet (United States)

    Interview

    2 interviews

    One interview was with a hiring manager and it was quite pleasant and useful. Talk were mainly about experience and where do you want to take your career and how things have worked in previous experience

    The second interview was with 8 different people asking questions, a very few asked useful questions. I felt that there were 2 development managers who were quite against me in it asking questions without really knowing what they were asking. They were shooting for an attempt to ask deep and specific technical questions that didn't really make sense and had to ask what the questions implied and to clarify, at which point they skipped over.

    Interesting enough the answer that surprised them the most is when they asked me if I wanted a career progression, I told them that I do, in a reasonable time. They seem to not have liked the fact that I do want a career progression.
