    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 6 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Western Union (Wien (Österreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Meine Erfahrung bei Western Union ist ausschließlich auf die firmeninternen Personalvermittler beschränkt. Jeder, der kürzlich nach einer Arbeit gesucht hat, kennt den Mangel an Rückmeldung seitens der Personalstelle und Personalvermittler nur allzu gut. Ich hatte es bei dieser Stelle mit zwei Personalvermittlern in zwei verschiedenen Ländern zu tun. Ich schickte mehrere E-Mails ab und nicht eine blieb unbeantwortet. Sie sandten sogar zusätzliche E-Mails, um sicherzugehen, dass ich vollständig informiert war und mit den Änderungen und Entscheidungen Schritt hielt. Als die Stelle erneut gepostet wurde, wurde eine Follow-up-E-Mail gesandt, um zu sehen, ob ich ein zweites Mal Erfolg haben würde. Die Kommunikationsanstrengungen durch WU sind absolut erstaunlich. Was für die ganze Organisation Bände spricht.

    Really casual, all behavioral. Talked about projects that I had done in the past. Asked some questions about where I want to be in x years. Only one interview in total. Didn't feel like I was under a lot of stress during the entire recruiting process.

    Project Manager-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Ich habe mich auf anderem Weg beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2020 bei Western Union.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Overall, the interview process was not very respectful of the candidates' time. I underwent 2 phone screen, then was asked to prepare a presentation covering how I would approach my first 100 days with the firm. After submitting my slides, I was informed that I was not to actually present it during the interview, but rather the interviewers wanted to read it in advance.

    The onsite interview left a lot to be desired. I was escorted to a conference room, where 4 parties were waiting. They did not introduce themselves, nor explain their roles with the company.

    What was immediately noticeable was the unfortunate impact that a lack of diversity and awareness had on the interview process. For example, one interviewer flipped through my presentation slides (which stated that I would stay away from making immediate changes outside of my standard job duties, and rather focus on learning the inner workings of the company, relationship-building, and building the influence necessary to effect broader impact in the long term). After flipping through it, she said, "you don't say in here that you would do any work. You do realize that you would have to do actual work if you came here, right? We wouldn't let you just sit around and talk." Obviously, this was very offensive to me, particularly as a woman of color (as we carry the stereotypes of lack or work ethic and a desire to be on welfare). It was simply bizarre and shocking that an interviewer would assume that a candidate with nearly 20 years of progressive leadership experience, excellent references, and a strong history of impactful successes would not to do their job if hired and I took it to be evidentiary of a bias.

    Another interviewer told me that I would be a challenging hire, given that I "would have to learn the financial services industry from scratch" and that "we have things to consider such as compliance that would be new to you." It was as if she had never bothered to even glance at my resume, which detailed my nearly 20 years of experience in the financial services industry - nor had she listened as I walked the group through it. A third interviewer shared that it would be challenging do me to act on a global scale, despite my having operated globally in the past and that I speak several languages. Overall, there were several shocking moments that made this interview a very unfortunate experience and which left me with the impression that it would be very difficult for candidate of my demographic to be successful in the role.

    I still politely asked a few standard questions, including what next steps would be, and was told that I would have to schedule more time to come in to meet with another interviewer on another day, which I did not feel would considerate of the time of candidates. I personally wouldn't have several days to schedule for each firm that I'm considering. However, some could only be a candidate with one firm and be willing to schedule several days off for multiple onsite interviews with a single firm.

    Given that I that the experience was negative and I had already received an offer from another firm and had another in progress, I was no longer interested in considering this role after meeting them onsite. I later received a voicemail from the recruiter advising me that I was not selected to move forward, anyway.

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2020 bei Western Union (Denver, CO (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Reached out via LinkedIn by sourcer/recruiter for role. Had a couple of initial screening calls. Recruiter set up phone interview with manager. Phone interview went fine--I had researched more about WU for role. I asked for potential timetable (2 weeks) to hear back. Then it appears I have been "ghosted" after no feedback or update on my status, even after follow-up with recruiter. Would have appreciated some feedback or response as a common courtesy as I was interested in the role.

    I was a little apprehensive when I applied because WU has a reputation for sending jobs to India. The first thing the interviewer said was the manager was thinking of sending the job "international" but the final decision hasn't been made. We then went through the motions of the phone screen. The phone screen was pleasant enough, nothing out of the ordinary. They informed me a week later that the job was going "International". I guess I'm lucky they didn't hire me and offshore my job a year later. I wonder if the hiring manager's job will get offshored too.

    Felt a bit bait and switch and a misunderstanding of behavior vs. work flow. Recruiter was pushy for a call back. Didn't really feel the fit or vibe in the process.

    Recruiting was responsive. Many of the interviewers seemed excited about being part of fintech, but it seemed to be mostly good intentions without any actual plan to move from a traditional company to a fast moving high tech one.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • The interview focused on whether I knew how to prepare decks of materials for management meetings. Nothing was asked on people or communication skills, industry knowledge or strategy development. Seemed odd for a Vice President ... of Strategy opening.   Frage beantworten
