    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Commerce Bank.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received phone call to schedule interview a few days later. I got really nervous and choked and did not make it to second round of interviews so I can not say how that goes. The HR rep was nice, but late meeting with me and was also writing down responses to questions which was distracting and impersonal.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Commerce Bank in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the HR rep. It was followed by in-person interviews about a week later. In one day I met with that rep, then with the hiring manager (my boss), and then with other managers of the same department.
    From what I am told, the difference that set me apart from other candidates was my preparation for the interviews. I had a lot of questions for them.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The HR rep sent me an offer along with pre-employment criteria I needed to complete. I didn't try to negotiate, because I badly needed the job and didn't want to mess with it.
