The interview process is pretty brutal. There are phone screenings, and if you're lucky enough to get an in-person interview, they are rigorous. They are usually panel interviews with 3-4 people, consisting of the hiring manager (sometimes a secondary / unrelated manager for backup) and 2-3 team members. You are pelted with scenario questions that require lengthy and detailed responses. IF that first interview goes well, there is almost always a second interview with the same as before, but turned up a notch. The stress of the interviewing process at Thrivent is an easy 9 or 10. It's definitely rough!!

Also, as a side-note, a caveat to employment is passing an FBI fingerprint scan & background search. NOT joking.

Long. Lots of interviews and work you need to do to get to the next interview. It was really good because they want to make sure you are cut out for this kind of job.

My interview process was quick. It was left up to the area manager who wanted to bring me on. Background went quick and interview with division manager at the Home Office was ok.
