    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Comerica in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by a current employee and applied online. Received a phone call from the office's manager and was asked mostly about my resume and why Comerica. Was brought into the office to meet with the manager and other employees. Very unstructured. Mostly just went over my resume and transcript again. The manager also tried to gauge what I knew about commercial lending. I was asked to submit a writing sample. Supposed to have a phone call with HR, but the rep missed two scheduled appointments. Was eventually told an offer would be forthcoming.

    Interview Questions
    • If I look at your transcript, what am I going to find?
      Can you submit a writing sample?
      What do you know about credit analysis and commercial lending?

    Initial call was Phone Interview with HR. They go over your resume, experience, college courses (accounting), etc. I was asked about the basic accounting equation (A = L + C) and then some more basic accounting questions.

    If you pass, they will schedule an Interview date.

    I had one interview with 3 different individuals in the organization. Back to Back to Back.

    Then I was called back and I was told I did well and offer me a job offer.

    Background check was rigorous and took 2 weeks. A third party does the background check, which includes a drug test. The job offer is contingent on your passing the background check

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Comerica in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone interview was the typical pre-screening phone interview. The 1:1 face to face interview was a bit more in depth. They really inquired about your accounting knowledge by asking questions about the basic accounting principles. Although I did not receive an offer, it took quite some time after a few follow-up phone calls to get a response.

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Comerica.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 phone interviews, and 1 in-person interview. Don't take phone interview for granted, very thorough for 25 min time slot by HR, then phone interview with hiring manager. HR asked approximately 15 questions, so have to be very quick in answering. In person interview, was two one-on-one sessions and 1 panel of (4 people). Very intense, yet professional interview session.
