    Branch Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Columbus, OH

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Citizens Financial Group in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initially interviewed over the phone with an HR recruiter, lasted about 30 minutes, standard questions.
    Interviewed next with the Regional Manager in person. The interview lasted a little over an hour and consisted primarily of behavioral questions. The Manager was very honest with the pros and the cons and at 1 point I thought he was talking me out of the job. The final interview was on the phone with a different Regional Manager, it was very short and I got the impression it was merely formality.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were standard "Tell me about a time..." questions. Nothing surprising or out of the ordinary.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation was minimal, but I was at the top of the salary range for the position, so that is to be expected. Salary negotiations aren't very common because the salary includes an incentive component with a generous cap based on performance.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Citizens Financial Group in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer was very interested in sharing his own background with me. Also told me that he was pretty sure that they were going to promote from within, but had to explore the "other options" as well. I appreciated hearing that after a 1 1/2 hr drive to his office.

    The interviewer called me from New York. She did a phone interview which was about 25 minutes.She called me for a second interview and then sent me to see the hiring manager. Hiring manager spoke with me for about 1 hours. Many questions were asked that were unrelated to the position. I was called and offer the position 2 weeks later.
