    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Great Western Bancorp in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    1st interview was with the branch manager. Pretty basic questions. Mostly related to banking experience, coaching, sales experience, and personality. 2nd interview was with the same branch manager AND another branch manager. Most questions were about job history, previous sales performance, and "What If" situations.

    Interview Questions
    • Any of the "what if" or "what would you do" questions   Answer Question
    • How would you motivate our tellers to sell?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Told them the offer was too low in the 2nd interview for the duties I'd be required to perform. My counter offer was not only accepted, but exceeded. Great Western Bank managers WILL LOW BALL you everytime. Act professional and remember it is apart of the business. If you ask politely and give solid reasoning as to why you need to be paid more, you should recieve a phone call within a few days saying your counter-offer was approved.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Great Western Bancorp in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were clear and concise. Good directions to the location. Interview questions were appropriate and thought out. I was interviewed by two people. They knew exactly who and what they were looking for and asked the right questions. They were able to answer questions that I had as well. They seemed to be very smart people and carried a sense of direction about them. I could tell that if I was hired, I would be in the right place.

    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate as I was pretty happy with the initial offer regarding pay and assigned time to work.
