- “The work-life balance at Discover is amazing. The employees truly care about each other and the well-being of the company. I worked 40 hours a week on the dot and was expected to do no more.”
- “Everyone that I work with is very enthused about work-life balance. I have a flexible schedule when it comes to arriving to work on time, which is incredibly helpful. I can leave at a flexible time as well. Everyone is open to a conversation any time during the day, and team members really look out for each other.”
- “The company culture is one of the best parts about Discover. Everyone is so open, kind, and collaborative. One of the many perks of the company culture is the work/life balance that is heavily promoted. Interns, as well as most full-time employees, work from home on Mondays and Fridays and work in [the] office Tuesday-Thursday. Additionally, interns can take summer hours for half-days on Fridays as well as 1 personal paid holiday. Also, you are required to work 40 hours a week and are not allowed to do work outside of work hours (no overtime), which helps to push this idea of work/life balance.”
- “Everyone is very inclusive and wants to improve each other. No one is out of reach and can be talked to if you really try. Time off is highly encouraged and respected. During my time I am expected to work roughly 40 hours a week.”
Getting Hired Here
- “The hiring process was quick, and not too many labored over rounds of interviews and a quick turnaround on my offer, which was surprising.”
- “Interview process was good—I remember doing 3 interviews. The first was a get-to-know-you type of interview, the second was a case-study interview, and the third was a behavioral interview. The first and third interviews were great, and the case study interview I thought was relevant to the hiring process for a financial services company, but you definitely need to prepare for it. You also need to do math on the spot, which can be nerve-racking, but there are a lot of resources online to help you prepare.”
- “Interview process was smooth and selective to a certain extent. Very clear in directions and considerate.”
- “The hiring process was very straightforward and direct. It did not take long for me to receive an offer right after my two rounds of interviews.”
