    Risk Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at BB&T in July 2015.

    Interview

    Total process took months. Received an email to set up a phone interview the next day. Interviewer was very rude and unprofessional. She admitted she knew nothing about the job and was unable to answer basic questions about the job. She asked no questions related to the job and didn't seem to care about finding the most qualified candidate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at BB&T (Tallahassee, FL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview on phone with standard HR questions. Was called back for an in person interview and requested to drive 4.5 hours up, in the next two days (I have a job) and 4.5 hours back home. I was able to accommodate the request. Was told I was top candidate and I would hear back the next week. However at end of interview, I was told they may not be hiring my credentials after all but that he would be meeting with the executives next week to decide. I felt this should have been decided prior to my taking time off work, renting a car and driving nine hours. It's been three weeks and two emails to them and I never heard a word. There were other jobs available that I fit the profile for. I expressed interest in those as well. I never heard a word from anybody. I would not be surprised if I did not hear back after a first, phone interview. However, after being asked to drive a nine hour day, taking time off work to come to a second interview, being told I am the top candidate and I would hear back next week and then never to hear a word and no response to my emails is shocking for a company of this caliber. I have no ill feelings. Just shock.

After that I was flown out to their headquarters in Winston Salem where I had one day of interviews. There was small written portion followed by two behavioral interviews. They are really trying to find fit more than anything.

    Interview

    I was contacted for a short phone interview by the department supervisor and then scheduled for a face to face interview. I was informed three times during the interview that the supervisor was very concerned that I would be bored in that position (i.e. you are over qualified). I was told that regardless of whether I was hired or not I would receive a call in 2-4 weeks informing me of my hire/non-hire status. That was in November. I'm still waiting for that call.
