I honestly believe that discover consistently post jobs with absolutely no intentions of hiring people. Maybe for equal opportunity purposes (to have a resume on file)???
First, I had a lengthy phone interview with an discover company recruiter followed by a call-in for an interview 1 month later.
I was super excited. Plan and stayed up studing useless company information, and answers to typical interview questions (and my favorite...behavior questions).
I arrived at 11am and saw 5 people.I then was told that 1 of my interviewers were not in for the day and would not be meeting with me (which I found very alarming, especially since I would be assisting that person). Several of the interviewers seem too busy with work to speak with me (eventhough this was planned). Nevertheless, I though the interviews went awesome. I had great feedback and felt that I had built common ground with many of my interviewers.
Before I left ,3hrs later, I was told by the recruiter that I would absolutely hear back (whether good or bad)regarding my status within 2wks . And to think, I even rushed home to type up 5 thank you letters to each person I saw.
I heard nothing back till this day almost 2mths later! Im sure most of you have been in this situation of not hearing anything back and that is a horrible feeling.The next day following my interview, I had noticed the same job posted again on a popular search engine (but under a different job#). I sent a email 3wks later to the recruiters assistant, and to the recruiter, expressing my interest still and no reply of course.
This is what makes me think that discover post jobs that they have no intentions of hiring for. I knew i was capable of doing this position as I have 7yrs experience at it.
I now have a job ( great company) and do NOT recommend anyone wasting their time with DFS, or gas on a non existant position!
