Branch Sales Representative Interview

Branch Sales Representative

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IBC Bank in July 2011.

Interview Details – Apply at any branch, application and resume are sent to corporate office for hiring committee. first interview is one on one, simple questions from your resume and work experience. If first interview is successful then you go on to a second interview that for me was another one on one but for some is a group interview. They ask questions about how you resolved issues from your work history, strong emphasis on sales.

Interview Question – Typical interview questions, if you have relevant experience (Sales and or banking) the interviewer will ask you to walk them through a problem resolution process.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – If you have a degree or strong experience you can negotiate, I was a student applying for part time so I did not have any leverage for negotiating.

Very Easy Interview

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at IBC Bank in June 2013.

Interview Details – They just ask if you have a record or outstanding bank debts. If experience is lacking, they expect you to provide other examples of leadership/problem solving, but it's based on your value. If you have a strong resume, you won't get any gotcha questions.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, all employees paid the same at entry level regardless of experience or education.

Teller Interview

Teller
San Antonio, TX

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at IBC Bank in February 2012.

Interview Details – Printed out the application online and went to turn it in and was asked to complete a math test that so easy- like 2nd grade math. After that I was told that I would be called in for an interview well I got a call two weeks later asking to come in for an interview. There was no set time I could basically walk in anytime well I arrived early and dressed professional. I had to go through a pre-screening to see if I would move onto the second round and I did. I was asked to come to conference room where I had a one on one interview with a branch manager we joked around and got off topic a couple of times but he basically read off a 6 page booklet. He told me I would be hired if I passed the background and credit check and that I would hear from them in three days. I never got the call I guess they thought my school loans were too much and that's why I didn't get hired. I probably would have declined either way because they want you to call people with existing bank accounts to open even more accounts. Basically they just care about how many accounts they have and want to be ahead of all the other banks the interviewer even said it himself.

Bank Teller Interview

Bank Teller
Corpus Christi, TX

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at IBC Bank in December 2011.

Interview Details – during the interview they make it clear that accounts are the most important thing. they want you to open 12 accounts a month and convince existing customers to open new accounts. the interview was fine i just had a problem with the way the bank works. especially when they want bank tellers and sales associate going to other businesses like whataburger and convincing people to open accounts. i find this so ridiculous i would not want to bother someone while they are eating.my interviewer also mention that when someone deposits a large amount in there account they want the bank tellers to call and ask them what they are going to do with there money and offer them an account. i find this so inappropriate and an invasion of the customers privacy.

Interview Question – tell me about yourself?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – if they do call me i will decline there offer because half way through the interview i knew i did not want it. the training is at the main branch and it's a 30min drive for me. the pay is horrible not worth all this pressure for minimum wage.
