    I have been working at TransUnion full-time (More than 3 years)


    After spending my early career at small and mid-size companies, I'm so appreciative of the kind of benefits a company the size of TransUnion can offer. Our health insurance covers virtually everything I need, I got 12 weeks of maternity leave fully paid, the 401k plan is great. They even offer pet insurance!

    Beyond the benefits plan, I'm legitimately happy here. My colleagues are fun and respectful, my manager is supportive, I rarely work more than 40 hours, and I truly feel that my contributions are recognized and appreciated.


    It's challenging to think of any besides some of the "red tape" associated with working through processes at a large company. Certain processes like getting contracts signed or budget approvals are very formal and time consuming

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TransUnion in September 2017.


    Total waste of time. About a week after applying I was contacted by email by a corporate recruiter to set up a phone interview for a few days later. The phone interview went very well, relevant questions and a little bit about the job. She couldn't tell me too much about the environment or job details as she was at HQ and the position was at another office. Let me know she would definitely reach out to schedule an in person or long phone interview with the local manager. Three days later I got an email confirming an appointment to meet with the local office for an in person interview four days from the email. Got to the in person interview to realize I just wasted time and that they must have already had someone in mind and were just doing filler interviews. Didn't get asked any questions about my skills relevant to the position. Didn't get asked about my skills relevant to my current positions. Nothing. Just got told about the job (which ended up being a lot more than what was in the job description and what the corporate recruiter knew about), was told about the company, and listened to the interviewers talk about themselves. Lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes. If you know you've made a decision and are blatantly wasting other interviewees time maybe cut it short next time. Got the "thanks but no thanks" email the next day, might as well have sent it the second I walked out the door.
