Customer Representative Position Interview

Customer Representative Position
San Antonio, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cullen/Frost Bankers in May 2013.

Interview Details – The first interview was pretty casual. The HR lady I spoke with was very nice! It was more like having a conversation than being drilled with questions. The second interview felt more like a regular interview, so I am glad that I had prepared for those questions. My advice is dress for success like a bank employee, prepare ahead of time, come early, be positive, and of course be yourself. If they want to hire you, you will know. The job process is pretty quick compared to other places, so I was really happy about that. If a couple weeks have gone by and no one has contacted you, then the position has probably been filled. Don't worry though, there are many great opportunities there. I didn't get offered a job until my second try at another position.

Interview Question – What was your biggest mistake at a previous job?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I decided not to negotiate because I was very satisfied with what was offered. It's a great company and it offers many benefits. That's a rare combination these days. If you get a job offer, I would accept it.
