    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Outerwall (Bellevue, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a phone call from them the next day with initial screening questions. They then called me back a couple of hours later to set up an in-person interview. The interview involved going to their office and video interviewing with their Chief Accounting Officer which lasted about 30 mins. Then meet with the controller and interviewed with him for another 30 mins. Lastly interviewed with 3 senior accountants. All of these interviews happened the same day over the course of 1.5 hours. Then lastly received a phone call from the HR department letting my know that i will be offered the job but gave me the weekend to think about it before they officially offered my the job.
