    Credit Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plymouth, MN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at U.S. Bank (Plymouth, MN).

    Interview

    phone interview -> on-site interview -> writing sample -> on-site interview again

    Both technical questions and behavior questions were involved. Technical questions were asked during the on-site interview mostly and they were really conversation-based. I don't think people were asked the same questions.

    After the first on-site interview, I was asked to provide writing samples and asked some of the questions that were given, which were 6 questions about previous experience and case studies. 4 out of 6 were asked to write. The questions were given on Friday and asked to submitted on Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic behavior question: strength/weakness, biggest challenge, knowledge in regulation(Basel II), professional writing experience, etc.

      Technical question: assumptions for linear/logistic regression and do they important in application, time series analysis, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at U.S. Bank (Lewiston, ID).

    Interview

    Applied online, was called roughly 1 week later for an in-person interview. The interviewers were the Branch Manager and Assistant manager. Both were nice and cheerful. Interview went well, but due to lack of banking experience I was denied the position. I recommend that anyone with customer service experience go for a job like this as it is what banking largely entails at this level.

    QA Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at U.S. Bank.

    Interview

    In a word - unprofessional.

    First, I interviewed for two positions with this company - both management positions. When I went for my final interview for the first position, I was told by the hiring manager that it was down to me and one other person. The final interview came and went. No word for weeks. I reached out to them to find out if there was any status, only to be told they were still making up their minds. Again, weeks went by. Finally, I received a phone call asking if I was still interested. I said I was. The HR rep then informed me that they would be back in touch with me in a couple of days. Again, weeks went by and nothing. Then, to beat it all, they called again. Same story. They asked if I was still interested. Again, I said yes. Again, they said they would be in touch within a few days. And again - nothing. So I basically I let it go.

    However, I was contacted a full month later by a different individual at U.S. Bank to see if I would be interested in a different position. The hiring manager for the first position had given my resume to a different hiring manager, and she was contacting me to so if I would be interested. This was how I found out I didn't get the first job (even though by this point I had assumed this was the case).

    I interviewed with the second person. By all indications, things went well. She then said I would be interviewing with three other individuals. I went through these interviews one by one over the course of the next few weeks. Each time, at all levels, everything seemed to go well. The final person told me, once again, that I would be contacted by HR within the next few days.

    However, once again, a week went by and I heard nothing. Eventually, I sent an email directly to the first individual to find out if things were still moving forward. I then received an email saying that they decided not to extend an offer and to basically go away.

    This entire process was so screwed up at so many levels it is hard to know what to make of it.

    In summary, if you decide to interview with this company don't expect much professionalism.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at U.S. Bank (Seattle, WA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    My first interview was a phone interview since I am currently living out of town. The interviewer first introduced the job description, talked about the company, etc. Then asked mostly situational questions. Finally, she opened up the interview for me to ask any questions about the position, company, etc. Overall, the interview process was very straightforward and what you can expect of a first interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Submitted resume and application on-line. Took them about a month to get back to me and interview was then scheduled 2 weeks later. Interview was with 2 people and was a "behavioral interview" type interview. They took turns asking the questions and both wrote what I said so there was a lot of awkward silence.
