    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at SunTrust.

    Interview Details

    I had past banking experience so I had cash ordering experience for the vault on the teller line. Also I was familiar with selling and referring bank products. I felt very confident but not cocky and we laughed a lot as well on the interview. It was a simple discussion and felt like a conversation instead of an interview. The follow up interview was with the area manager and she asked about my background and again it felt like a discussion. I felt a little more pressure with the area manager but only because I was so excited. The process happened very fast and I got a call back within a few days with an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The area manager was concerned because I was more operations instead of sales.

      Just be relaxed, dress professionally, be the part and smile. I found that when I went in completely unprepared and clear headed is when I seem to have the best interviews. I have gone on many interviews because I like to keep my skills sharp, but just be calm, talk slow and clear. Be honest, and keep answers simple because you can "talk yourself out of a job".

    Negotiation Details
    I told them my bottom line based on my experience and they met it and even went slightly over what I was expecting. I even tried to negotiate a little bit but the offer they gave me was clearly final.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at SunTrust in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    First was a phone interview with a few basic questions just to qualify you and make sure you are worth the time to interview. Second was an interview with the branch manager that consisted of your basic interview questions straight off a interview check list they print off. Third was an interview with the area manager. This one was more of a meet and greet to make sure of the BM's selection, and to talk salary expectations to make sure you are all on the same page. Then came the offer followed by a drug test and background check.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a situation in the past where you had to handled an angry customer, and how did you help them leave satisfied and even turn it into a sale.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Offered a range that I would like to be in, and they will tell you if you all are in the same ballpark. They will place your salary on your low end of the range but with bonus it can be more of where you want.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at SunTrust in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Before getting hired at SunTrust, they kept sending me to branch after branch to interview. I should have known then that they were pretty much trying to fill in spots and as long as I had some prior financial experience then they would eventually hire me. They ask the standard behavioral questions (Describe a time... How did you handle that... What was the outcome... Etc...) As long as you tell them what they want to hear and sound sincere and can have believable examples to their questions then the job is definitely yours.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time that you had to go above and beyond your normal duties to help a client. What was the situation and how did you handle it? What was the outcome? What could you have done differently?   Answer Question
