I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BBVA Compass.

Interview Details – Interviewed with the district officers. He asked formal standard interview questions.
Walk me through your day?
How do you prioritize?
How often do you coach you employees. What does a coaching session sound like?
What are you career goals?
What are you current branch goals? How do you achieve them? How do you track them?
        These are all of the questions I remember.

1) Under producing personal banker corrective action conversation and vise versa.
2) Interaction with a business customer that you're prospecting.

Interview lasted about 45 minutes.

Senior Financial Sales Advisor Interview

Senior Financial Sales Advisor
Scottsdale, AZ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at BBVA Compass in June 2012.

Interview Details – My friend hired me, so it wasn't a true interview process. This happens a lot here. Out of the last 20 new hires 19 are from Chase. It is a bank so you have to pass finger print, back ground check, and drug tests. Also must have or get 6/63 life and health to be Senior FSA.

Interview Question – You do an interview with the Branch manager and also with the District manager. Then they offer you the job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I asked for an extra week of vacation and got it. I told the HR lady she asked the manager and they said yes.

Finance Manager Interview

Finance Manager
Birmingham, AL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at BBVA Compass in January 2011.

Interview Details – Phone screen with internal recruiter, face to face with hiring manager and 2-3 of her peers, total 2-2 hour process. Afterwards had to do a psychology assessment with a local consulting firm, it is grade specific, so I would not worry if you come in less than a grade 22.

Interview Question – When can you start? Seems there was a rush to get someone in the role and was actually not expected. The rest was typical questions, absolutely nothing difficult. In retrospect I would have asked to meet some of the team members, I would have realized it was a mediocre to lazy group and may not have taken the role.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Took 3 phone calls with the internal recruiter to negotiate. I refused to take a lower paying job than the one I had and even had to send a spreadsheet comparing current job to this BBVA job. Finally agreed to a hiring relocation package - however came back to bite me at tax time and needed to stay at the bank for 2 years. Mistake!

BBVA Compass LEAP Interview

BBVA Compass LEAP

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BBVA Compass.

Interview Details – I interview for this program after being talked into it by someone already in the program. I had the qualifications from an experience standpoint, but they seemed extremely stuck up. With that said, the program seemed to be beneficial to those who ended up in it. Most of them left the bank within 3 years, but all ended up with great jobs elsewhere...

Interview Question – What type of power tool would you be?   Answer Question
