    Lengthy. I went through about five of interviews.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at BB&T in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied for the position through OCR, on-campus recruiting. I interviewed for the position in February. The interview was 1 on 1, and lasted for approximately 40 minutes. The interviewer asked mostly behavioral-style interview questions, and then asked me if I had any questions or concerns about the position and the interview process. A few weeks after the initial interview, I was invited to take personality assessment, Caliper Profile. I am currently waiting to hear back regarding 2nd round prospects. The recruitment/hiring process is a fairly smooth and streamlined one.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at BB&T (Sunrise, FL) in February 2014.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    Application

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

    Interview

    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 Questions

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

    Negotiation

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at BB&T (Port Orange, FL) in January 2014.

    Interview

    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.
