    Market Leader Interview

    Interview Details

    Straight forward interview process with first going through HR. You will have only 1 interview with area manager and decisions are made quickly. Hiring managers need applicants to hit "Value boxes" to be hired. Read up on BB&T culture and value to spit out a few lines. Little flexibility in offers due to BB&T's low pay scale

    Reasons for Declining

    BB&T is a great company and I think working with my interviewers would have been positive, it's just that I changed my mind about moving so far away from home and received an offer somewhere else.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BB&T in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a call from HR Rep within a few days for an initial phone interview. Didn't hear back for almost a week so I called the particular branch to follow up. After that they set me up with a face to face the very next day. That went well with typical interview questions, heard back the next day to set up a final round interview with the manager on the phone. Again, this went well with questions about experience and background as well as personal goals. Got a call the following day from the original HR Rep with an offer of employment.
