Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Bank Hapoalim in April 2011.

Interview Details – The interview is a very long process, at first you arrive to an innitial interview through your manpower company, you need to look official, it matters, they give you a short interview about yourself and then give you a short test to check your reliability, it's important to say the truth in this test and not to try to impress. then if you pass they let you know when to come to an evaluation centre, that's going to be the hard part, you need to show up looking official, you are going to see there people who already work in the bank and just need to pass the centre for a promotion, I almost fainted that day because it was so long and nobody told me, make sure you brink water and a snack with you :) make your best, be yourselves.

Interview Question – They had some IQ test that were pretty difficult but nothing more.   View Answer

Operations Interview

Operations

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Bank Hapoalim in April 2008.

Interview Details – Nice people. First interview was with two members of the team and was mostly them explaining what they do and them trying to ascertain what I had one on my previous role and whther it was relevant. Generally quite relaxed and informal chatting. Second interview was with the FD and again was fairly informal. Got the impression they were looking for personality fit slightly more than skills.
