    Leadership Development Program Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at BB&T in March 2015.

    Interview

    The first interview was on grounds and it was strictly behavioral with two questions about the financial industry and one about the company specifically. The day before the interview I was sent a link to complete some personality assessments and those were long and really asked you personal things and interests. I was very honest and was invited to the second round a little more than a week later. The second round takes place in Winston-Salem and they will most likely work with you to arrange travel transportation and reimbursement. This interview process was composed of an introduction of what BB&T is and its culture, followed by a round of behavioral interviews and a written case assignment that you then explain to a second interviewer. It is not hard, but you have to know enough of the company so you can apply their strategy and mindset into the response.

    Interview

    I applied through my college campus, and had a short one on one behavioral interview. It was pretty straight forward with a lot of "tell me about a time" questions. The best advice I can give is to be confident. I was then asked to take a thorough personality test. Still currently in the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at BB&T (Greenville, NC) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The person who did the interview was out of a local office and had to be there. So this started out bad because he was not from the HR department. he read the questions on the sheet and that was it. Very dry and no good way to communicate with him.

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at BB&T (Winston-Salem, NC) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Two-day interview process. Started with a broad explanation about the program on day one. The second day consisted in three interviews. Beginning with a persuasion exercise in the first interview. Then an essay exercise, and finally an interview designed to find how suitable the individual is to the job. In general, I can say that BB&T is driven by its values and mission, being that with what the candidate must be in total harmony to be considered. Great experience.
