    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Fifth Third in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I think it was just too difficult. To come up with examples for five years experience. This does not give a good feel for who the person truly is.

    Interview Questions
    • They were all difficult. Asking for specific examples on a certain aspect of the job. There is no time to think and if you take too long then how does that look.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Fifth Third in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through an employee referral and was contacted very shortly after by a branch manager and set up a time to come in and interview. Interviewed with 2 local branch managers and the regional manager. Interview was very professional and lasted about 30 mins. Was contacted a few weeks later and informed that they had eliminated the position. A few weeks after that I was contacted by another branch manager and set up another interview. Met with the branch manager and the regional manager again for a very brief interview. I received a call the following week with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Claims Dispute Analyst I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Fifth Third in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process is very cut and dry. The same questions are asked in every interview. I have had 4 interviews and both of them had the same questions. Typically asking your strengths, weaknesses, what you would do in difficult situations, unpopular decisions you have made etc. I was interviewed by two managers, one male the other female.

    Interview Questions
    • The hardest question i was asked is what my biggest weakness is. I would suggest to create a weakness that can be viewed as bonus to the employer, such as getting caught up in your work or working too hard.   Answer Question

    Finance Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Fifth Third in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    I first spoke with HR/Recruiting who asked all of the preliminary questions. They did a follow-up call to setup the date and time for the interview. I went to the face to face interview and met with the hiring manager. This part of it went fairly well, however there seemed to be some reluctance on the interviewers part to elaborate to much about the position being interviewed for.

    Reasons for Declining

    The amount offered for compensation was a lower than realistic amount for the role being interviewed for.
