Senior Teller Interview

Senior Teller

I applied online - interviewed at BB&T in January 2014.

Interview Details – A recruiter contacted me first and then had one interview with the Branch Manager/Market Leader and the Teller Supervisor (who I'd be reporting to). Was contacted again for a second interview to offer me the job. Background checking took more than a week for me since my references/experience were all outside the US.

Interview Question – If a co-worker asked you to do something that's against the rules, how would you handle it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Satisfied with the initial offer considering I had no experience in being a teller and they hired me as a Senior Teller right away.

Sales and Services Officer Interview

Sales and Services Officer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at BB&T in November 2012.

Interview Details – The onsite interview is heavily based on fit. Very little in the way of technical questions, more about how you present yourself and your previous experiences. The HR reps were phenomenal and one of the best recruiters I've worked with, I really felt like she was advocating my candidacy internally.

Interview Question – None that I can remember   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very little negotiations, salary offer came in pretty generously and I was satisfied I was being compensated fairly. Negotiated on the signing bonus and vacatin.

Relationship Banker Interview

Relationship Banker
Sunrise, FL

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at BB&T in February 2014.

Interview Details – I went to an open house at BB&T. The open house was in a conference room. I signed in and waited for my turn to be interviewed. I interviewed with a branch manager. He wasn't very interested in my background. He was more interested in my answers to his questions. One question the branch manager used was "How did you deal with an angry customer?"

Interview Question – I've never worked in a retail bank. So I was not prepared to "put on my magic hat" and role play as a Relationship Banker.   Answer Question

Relationship Banker I Interview

Relationship Banker I
Port Orange, FL

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at BB&T in January 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and received a call from a HR recruiter the next day. A brief phone interview, she sounded excited to push me forward. Set an in-person interview with a market leader the next day. She went over my sales experience and past banking experience. She seemed quite interested in my resume. About two weeks went buy after being told I would receive a call with a week in regards to the position. Then I realized that my MBA at Cornell university in Financial management, BBA in Business management, excellent work history both for companies and myself did not matter. I missed the one important qualification.... I'm not white and being a well rounded well educated young black man I apparently am not capable of working for this company. Called three times and left three detailed messages. It takes only 2 minutes to tell me that I don't have the position. I would not mind anything if they just told me that they are racist and want to hold black people back. I would not have applied, but their website says they thrive on diversity.

If your a young black man DO NOT APPLY HERE!!! They will only interview you just to say that they interview minorities. Matter of fact if you are of any other ethnicity than White DO NOT APPLY HERE!!!! THEY WON'T EVEN GIVE PROPER RODERIC OF CALLING YOU BACK TO SAY THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED.

I hope this helps someone out in not wasting their time and to apply somewhere else that will care only about their qualifications.

Every Class I took, every professor reminded us of how diversity will only encourage development and continued growth of a company.
