Teller/Customer Service Representative Interview

Teller/Customer Service Representative

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Comerica in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied to multiple branches. I was initially contacted by an HR rep to set up a phone interview. I'm guessing I passed that because afterwards I received calls from different branches. One branch just asked me to come in for an in-person interview. The other branch called me and asked if I had time to talk and began to interview me on the spot. I was then asked to come in for a branch interview. Both interviews were about 45 mins long.

I received an offer for both positions but accepted a job elsewhere.

Interview Question – Questions are read from a paper. Some questions were...Why should we hire you? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Name a time a crisis or panic was caused in the workplace and what you did and how you overcame it? How do you deal with difficult customers/co-workers? What do you know about Comerica? Be prepared to talk about your sales experience and past experience(why you left). It is an easy interview   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I had supervisor experience and wanted something more fitting for my skills. Another opportunity became available so I took that instead.

Vice President Interview

Vice President
Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Comerica in February 2011.

Interview Details – The process is very rigorous to say the least. I had many phone interviews prior to being invited to the office. The process lastest several months before an offer was made. HR seems to slow the process down substantially and after working at the company I can also attest to that.

Interview Question – There were not any difficult questions that I was not prepared for. This was a specific role within the bank that I applied for and my background and experience aligned with the credentials that were being sought after.   Answer Question

Systems Administrator Interview

Systems Administrator
Auburn Hills, MI

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Comerica in April 2011.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter, unsolicited, and invited to have a phone interview within one day. I did have that interview the next day and went through both my experiences and my approaches, tying them specifically to their environment. I was offered a contract-to-hire position the following day. I was told I would have a 4-month probationary period which actually turned out to be 6 months before I was offered a full-time position with Comerica.

Negotiation Details – I was offered a fixed salary through the contracting agency but later submitted an offer to Comerica which was subsequently negotiated.

Credit Specialist Interview

Credit Specialist
Boston, MA

I applied through an employee referral and 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 Question – 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?
  View Answer

Reason for Declining – I didn't feel that it was a good fit for me.
