I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at City Holding in March 2008.
Interview Details – I first had a phone interview with my recruiter who ended up setting up the interview date/time with me. I showed up at the office in Downtown Los Angeles where I first met with the hiring manager. She interviewed me and then wanted me to meet the rest of the department that I would be working with. Each of them came in after the next one left, so despite interviewing with a total of four people altogether, I was only interviewed one on one. The entire interview took about two hours. I was given business cards for everyone and shook hands with the hiring manager before I left. I sent thank you e-mails to all of them and was contacted by my recruiter a week later to inform me that I was selected for the position.
Interview Question – Tell me about yourself and how did you hear about CNB? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I would advise others to always negotiate your offer. I didn't know this and just accepted the first offer they gave me and once I discovered the pay scale, I realized that my salary was at the low end of the spectrum. I could have asked for at least $10-$15k more for my job grade level.

Interview Details – I applied internally and was interviewed 6 times by 6 different people. They wanted to make sure that the interviewees are the right candidates for the position. Average dialogue and interview questions. Every interviewer was kind and comforting. The fact that I am an internal hire might have helped.
Interview Question – What do you know about the position Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 5 days - interviewed at City Holding in March 2008.
Interview Details – they brought me in and it was an all day interview on a saturday. Found out withing 2 weeks and accepted. They provided relocation and I started after college. Not many raises after starting and I wouldn't recommend this company to others. Retail banking is very limited in how much you can move up.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at City Holding in December 2008.
Interview Details – The hiring and interview process was very smooth. After our initial phone conversation, I was brought in for 1:1 interviews, where I met with the team, and the interview focused mainly on fit and what I could expect. Each office handles this process differently, and HR is not as involved as in other companies. Your manager and his team will probably be your main contact point, so make sure to be polite and respectful. You will most likely be working with the same people and you don't want to start off on the wrong foot. In all my experiences with this Company, it has been very informal, and the interviews are as well. Be yourself and make sure that you are comfortable with the culture, and pace of the organization. Coming from a faster paced world, it was a transition for me.
Interview Question – The most unexpected question asked, was prior to the interview, when I was asked if it was possible for me to provide a sample of my work product. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate a 25% increase in the signing bonus, and the start date. As far as advice, get what you can up front, the company is very conservative, so large raises and bonuses will be hard to come by in the future.
