    Personal Banker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fifth Third in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Easy process for anyone with half a brain. I feel as though the job is not accurately described to potential employees regarding the day-to-day responsibilities of the role. HR staff is polite and generally helpful. After offer, drug test, background check, and standard onboarding procedures apply. Training is a fairly boring and painful portion of work that does not really leave one well-prepared to start on the job.

But nothing out of the ordinary things were asked such as what was my five year goal and why do I enjoy working in retail banking.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Fifth Third in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    One of the recruiters will reach out via phone or email to do a phone screen. They will set up an interview with the hiring manager. The downside is that you can interview with quite a few managers if they don't feel like you're the right fit for their office.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fifth Third.

    Interview Details

    It was very quick. I have very unique management style. Usually banking is quite conservative. The management in my area is much more liberal. We are in a very unique market. Sales and personalities are much more appreciated than banking skill. Getting hired isn't possible without previous sales experience.

    Interview Questions
    • What was the most difficult sale? How did you overcome the objection and how can you translate that to banking?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I would have been able to negotiate, but I was actually offered and extremely competitive package. The only thing I didn't like was weekend work, but that wasn't negotiable.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fifth Third in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter was very pleasant. After in person interview with Financial Center Manager, very intimidating phone interview with the Regional Manager. Every answer had two or three additional questions following. Probably the toughest interview I've ever had.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiating. I later found others in my position who successfully negotiated additional vacation time.
