    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Fifth Third (Cincinnati, OH) in October 2014.

    Interview

    I networked with a grad from my school and went straight to the super day in Cincinnati at their headquarters. I had two one on one interviews which were just basic behavioral going over my resume. We had two panel sessions as well. The first is just with the current FALP employees and the second is with employees in different areas of the company. It seemed to go well.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fifth Third in August 2014.

    Interview

    The entire process took over one month to complete for a part time position. I had to interview with a manager at the branch I was to work at and another branch manager from a different location. They were slow to follow up and eventually I knew I had the position when I had to provide approval for a credit check for a future higher level position.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Fifth Third in June 2014.

    Interview

    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

    • A few behavioral style questions on how you would act following certain policies.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The position sounded great and I was very impressed by organization but I had received another offer from another company that more closely matched my career goals.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Fifth Third in May 2014.

    Interview

    I enjoyed meeting with each HR person. I interviewed with 3 individuals and it went very well however the last thing I was told was that I needed to meet with one last person. They never contacted me after that. I don't mind not getting the job but it is very rude and unprofessional to not inform someone after the number of times I traveled to interview with them. I didn't expect this from such a large company. It just shows me how unprofessional they are.
