I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at BB&T (Goldsboro, NC) in July 2014.
The process went pretty smoothly. I had an initial interview with Branch Manager, then second interview with SSL and Branch Manager. It was also required that I take a very lengthy online assessment before completing the interviews.
- I don't recall a really unexpected or difficult question. All pertained to the job and basic interview questions such as: tell me about yourself, role-play phrased questions, tell me about a difficult situation you had to overcome at your previous job. Answer Question
I accepted the offer given, I felt it was a fair and generous offer considering my education and experience.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at BB&T (Raleigh, NC) in June 2014.
Initial communication was good, received a call right away. Phone interview scheduled with Manager and several techs. All individuals seemed very respectful and nice.
Once interview kicked off this is where it gets interesting.
Manager said it will be very technical and that I may only get 20% of it right [That should have been a red flag right there].
This position was for a Windows Admin, but all questions were AIX, Linux, some Mainframe, C# programming and very very little Windows [Which is what the job was for]. WTF!!!!!!
Never had I had an interview where the goal seemed to be "Make the individual feel as stupid as possible" I really felt embarrassed on the call and when I told the we should just skip all the non Windows questions I was told we could not and that they needed to be asked. What!!!! I just told you I don't have any experience in them and you continue!!!!!
I am coming from a large insurance company, high stress and high tempo. Recently moved and needed a job but this is unacceptable.
To Top it all off the questions were being asked an fella with a very heavy foreign accent [Indian or Pakistani] and I had to keep having him repeat the questions.
- In the programming language of your choice and with correct syntax tell us how to write some particular portion of code. I can't really remember what it was but I thought what a strange question for a Windows Web question. 1 Answer

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days – interviewed at BB&T in June 2014.
It was a pretty typical interview general what would you do in this and that situation. The hard part is the training. Staring at a computer screen for 8 hours can be very discouraging at times and you won't see the teller line until the second week of training. You only get to train in a drawer for two days
- If you where stranded on a island what three things would you bring Answer Question

I applied online – interviewed at BB&T (Morgantown, WV).
I had three interviews. The first was with HR, the next two were with the Branch Managers. The Branch Managers decide if they want you on their team based on your answers.
- Where do you see yourself a year from now? Answer Question
You tell them what you want to make and if it not much in their eyes, they will give you exactly that, not much is said after that. So start high and let them try to bring it down.

It was ridiculous process and pathetic interviewers who did not have any clue what they were asking. Everything you can find mostly of the internet !
