Bank Teller Interview

Bank Teller
Whittier, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Citibank in December 2012.

Interview Details – I applied for a full time teller position and within a few days I recieved a phone interview. I was asked basic questions about customer service and sales. I have experience as a teller so this process was routine for me. After the phone interview i was called to schedule an in person interview which i accepted i did some research on the company and practiced my interview questions and answers to be prepared. I met with the assistant manager and the senior teller they both interviewed me at the same time and asked me about my previous work history and how i would handle customers and what was expected of me regarding sales all I can say is that i did well. I was asked for a 2nd interview this time it would be with the branch manager.

Interview Question – I was interviewed by the branch manager and right from the get to she asked me a bunch of questions and after i gave an answer she would comment in a negative way. I dont know why but i already knew this interview wasnt going to go well she continued to ask more questions and i answered the best way i could i remained calm and friendly. I wanted to walk out on the interview because of certain comments she made but i just continued. My advice would be to do your research on the company and keep calm and smile alot. Some people are more professional then other so its a matter of getting the right person to interview with unfortunately mine didnt go so well.   Answer Question

Teller Interview

Teller
Pasadena, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Citibank in July 2012.

Interview Details – After applying online and answering a questionnaire centered on customer service I was emailed about setting up a phone interview. I did, and they asked me about my previous work experience, of which I do not have much to refer to as I have not had an actual paying job ever. I was asked hypothetical questions such as: How would you go about completing a list of tasks given to you by your manager? and If an upset customer came to you with a complaint how would you deal with it?

Interview Question – Why do you want to work at CitiBank and not another bank?   View Answers (2)
