- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at BB&T in July 2015.
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.
- Why did you leave you previous jobs? (Which was really the only question asked) Answer Question

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

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at BB&T (Columbia, SC) in June 2015.
I applied and received a phone call within a week to schedule an in person interview. I was interviewed by the regional trainer and market leader. Pay attention to the teller training program because I was asked some of those situational questions in the interview. I was called back for a second interview several weeks later.

Had a first round interview on campus. It was very basic behavioral questions and some why BB&T type questions. About a week later I was contacted to take a few personality tests. 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.
- What are the three most pressing regulatory issues the bank is facing? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at BB&T (Richmond, VA) in March 2015.
I applied online and had to take the teller test online. Interviewing was a two round process. I was called on a Friday around 5pm to set up a phone interview about a month after submitting an application online. The phone interview was a standard review of the resume. After the interview was over, the interviewer said she would email me if the branch lead wanted to interview me in person.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at BB&T (Richmond, VA) in February 2015.
They recruited on campus, doing a basic interview asking personality and technical questions. I was called the next day to be invited to a superday in their Richmond office. The superday consisted of 9 rounds of interviews, moving from room to room, each room had a prepared financial topic. The enviorment is very tense and it is a male dominated field. They are heavy on the technicals

I applied online – interviewed at BB&T (Richmond, VA) in February 2015.
Applied online and received a call to come in for an interview. Interviewed with a BB&T employee who had gone through the LDP a few years ago. Interview lasted about an hour and a half and was pretty straightforward and behavioral. I am still waiting to hear if I made it to the next round.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at BB&T.
I was interviewed on the phone. All questions were about the research projects I did in grad school to see if my background fits the position. I was asked many very general questions, for example to explain the model that we used, what types of approximations that we made, and the regressions that we have done. .
- The interviewer went into the very details of the model. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at BB&T.
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.
- Honestly, they need to work on the questions they ask people. These were very basic and lame. Be original! Answer Question
