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

    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.
