    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Guaranty Bank.

    Interview Details

    Was provided a phone number to call for the interview which was more convenient than going to their location, but it was very odd to record answers to an answering machine. Since there was no response from the other end of the line, I might have been too fast in giving responses as the interview took less than 10 minutes! Also felt that the questions were ver similar- about competency, skills and experience using data mining tools.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions focussed on my skills and experiences with data warehousing, SPSS, Excel. General questions like what are you looking for and expected salary.   Answer Question

    the first step is an automated telephone interview afterwards in maybe a few days or so or when the manager has time they will review and schedule a f2f interview which is very easy you will be asked questions off a paper template and asked to go in aisle to see how you do.

    I applied online – interviewed at Guaranty Bank.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and did a phone interview with a computer. I applied to multiple positions and didnt end up passing the phone interview for the first one, but i passed the second one cause i remembered the questions they asked and was more prepared. (Why does part-time work for you?, If you have sales experience explain in..etc, Explain a time you went above and beyond for a customer, explain a time you had a difficult customer) and the next week i got a phone call from the branch manager and had a interview with her, that was on a friday. Then the following monday I got a phone call with a job offer.

    Personal Banker Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Guaranty Bank.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is archaic. HR expects you to be able to fax a ridiculous amount of documents to them in a tight timeframe. Yes, you heard that right. FAX ONLY. They don't even accept scanned documents into e-mail.

    Interview Questions
    • There are no difficult questions. You could be dumber than a box of rocks and get hired for a "leadership" role at this company (trust me, I've seen them).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was called and told I got offered a higher position than I applied for, and the pay sounded great! That is until I realized that even with two years of previous banking experience, and four years of sales experience, they only offered me $.20 higher/per hour than the minimum wage for the position.

    The two, low quality, subordinates that were hired after me were making top of their pay scale due to desperation for employees. I routinely (as in, every month) put up top 5 sales in the Minnesota market in the month, and I'm making less than a dollar more than the people I'm supposed to be the boss of.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Guaranty Bank in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was sent an email for a phone interview with a PIN-number. The initial phone interview was odd, as I was not speaking to a personal, rather a machine. Essentially you are leaving your answers on a voice-mail. Correspondence was sent to my email following this process.

    Interview Questions
    • 1) You are applying for a part-time position, tell us why part time works for you.
      2) Tell me about a time when your job entailed being detailed and accurate
      3) Tell me about a time when you went above and beyond to ensure your customer got great service.

    Guarany Bank Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Guaranty Bank.

    Interview Details

    Online math assessment, phone interview, and face to face interview. I received a call almost instantly after completing my phone interview. Managers tend to portray a serious and intimidating demeanor during the interview, but trust me most of them are very laid back on a day to day basis. Once you are hired you complete 3 weeks of very easy training, then you are off to your branch.

    Interview Questions
    • The Manager wants to know that you can successfully close deals. All he or she needs to know is that you can tolerate approaching strangers in a grocery store. So majority of the interview questions will be geared towards sales. Be prepared to answer questions such as, How do you feel about approaching strangers? Are you comfortable with standing for long periods of time? Do stop selling when a person tells you no?   Answer Question
