Difficult Interview

Personal Banker Interview

Greenwood Village, CO

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at U.S. Bank in February 2014.

Interview Details – After applying online, received an invitation to a group interview, where I was only asked two questions in order to be considered for a private interview. The manager indicated only about 50% of applicants make it to the group interview and wished us good luck. I was surprised how quickly I received the interview invitation. The initial hiring process is fast.

Interview Question – The most difficult part was giving detailed answers to the simple questions that carried the weight of my value as a candidate. The two questions were essentially to 1. describe a situation where you assisted a difficult client and 2. describe a time when you went out of your way to provide great customer service.   Answer Question

I applied through other source and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at U.S. Bank in December 2012.

Interview Details – I applied for the position via indeed.com and got a call from the branch manager a few days later. It was a for an out of state move so he agreed to do a phone interview with me and when the time came closer to him finishing up interviews he would meet with me in person. He scheduled the interview for a week after the initial phone call. when the time came for the first interview we had a long discussion about what my background was with customer service, banking industry, credit knowledge etc and about how I like do be managed. He seemed very intersted in that topic inparticular. He asked me 3 or 4 times. At the end of the hour long phone interview he told me that he wanted to meet me in person and I was a final candidate.

I scheulded an inperson 2nd interview for 2 weeks after that. I thought things were going well but then the manager started to act kind of squirrley. He forgot that we never set up an interview time and seemed uninterested on the phone the next time I spoke with him to confirm a time. When I went in for the in person interview (I drove 4 hours mind you) he was 40 minutes late and made me feel like he was annoyed that I was there. He repeated almost every question he had asked me on the phone interview and when I answered he gazed out into the lobby or into the parking lot. The kicker though was when he told me straight up that his reason that he was having reservations about hiring me was because i was moving to the area with my boyfriend and "boyfriend and girlfriends break up". This is blatant discrimination based on marital status. Furthermore he proceeded to tell me that his personal views were that one shouldn't live with someone before they were married. I was there for a job interiview..not a moral debate. He also told me that he didnt see himself there very long and didn't care much for his job and the previous person left the position because he was doing a lot of work and not making enough money. Ok thanks for convincing me not to want to work there!

Most of the questions in the interview (both of them) were pretty basic. Name a time when you had to overcome and deal with a difficult customer, how do you handle criticism etc.

Interview Question – They were all pretty expected and basic.   Answer Question

Interview Details – Was a pretty basic interview. Was expecting technical questions. The interviewer asked basic questions like tell me about your self,how do you stay organized, and asked also about my experience.

Interview Question – The interviewer asked "name a time where you were able to learn something quickly". Of course this threw me off and my answer was not as fine tuned as it should have been.   Answer Question

Laurie, MO

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at U.S. Bank in March 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online for a part-time teller position. I received a phone call three days later and we discussed the position. "Manager" told me that she was looking for someone part time, who would stay part time for awhile. She knew I was more interested in a full-time position. She told me to think about it and get back with her. A week later she called me back with information about a new position that will be available soon. We talked about the job duties and she said it sounded like it would be a better fit. We set up an interview.
I literally just got out of my interview.
The interview lasted just over an hour. She was very friendly and professional. The manager had asked me to describe myself, my experiences, and asked deeper into my experiences. She informed me the job is sales oriented and there are bonus' if one meets certain goals. She even answered the questions I was going to ask before I got to them, so make sure you have backup questions to ask the employer!
 The branch seemed very comfortable and 'homey' with chairs, couches, etc. The staff was friendly.
The manager the next step will be another interview with her and the district manager. So I am looking for that soon. It sounds like a place I can see myself working in.

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at U.S. Bank in September 2009.

Interview Details – I applied online and was scheduled to interview with the Assistant Branch Manager and Branch Manager of the bank. I interviewed with the Assistant Branch Manager for about 35 minutes. The Branch Manager was suppose to join us, but came in and said something had come up and she wasn't able to meet with us. The interview with the Assistant Branch Manager was very relaxed and easy going. I felt more like I was talking to a friend. She basically explained to me the job expectations and the hours. She didn't ask any formal questions. She told me they would schedule another interview with the branch manager.
So about a week 1/2 later she called me to schedule an interview with the Branch Manager.
The branch manager was very nice and easy going. Told me the branch had gone through a lot of transition recently. Had some problem employees and asked me what my first impression of those employees were. I found that kind of strange, but I gave my honest opinion. I left feeling very good about the chances of getting the job. But received an email notice two weeks later explaining that I didn't get it, I later found out they didn't hire for the position.

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at U.S. Bank in January 2012.

Interview Details – I applied weeks before I got a call for an interview, when I did get the call I was asked to come in for an interview. I met with the branch manager and then not even 24 hours later I got a call to schedule an interview with the district manager. I have that this afternoon, hopefully it goes well.
They asked very standard questions. They hated on my current position which was the only downside.

Interview Question – Tell me a little about yourself....   View Answers (2)
