    Lead Analyst/Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days - interviewed at KeyBank.

    Interview Details

    While I have participated and conducted both group and individual interviews, it is my personal preference to have one on one interview. This fosters better communication and blend between the applicant and the hiring official. Questions that involve career aspirations are always helpful as it displays the direction for the applicant.

    Interview Questions
    • Personal feelings and/or opinions about prior management. Styles are important to understand but feelings that are perceived as personal are difficult as they may or may not articulate management style (i.e. micro managing).   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Yes, I was able to negotiate. My recommendation for others considering an offer would be to consider everything in the offer not just pay.

    Finance Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at KeyBank in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was done over the phone and was approximately 30 minutes with a member of HR.
    Basic questions about background and resume.
    Second section included questions about finance testing basic knowledge on the topic.

    I then was called back for a second set of interviews at the company.
    It started with a casual chat with other applicants and 2 recruiters while we waited for interviewers to arrive. We were posed questions such as "If you were a sandwich, what kind of sandwich and why?"
    There were 3 other applicants and we cycled through 20 minute interviews with three different employees.
    The first focused on cultural fit and strength and weaknesses (tell me about a time when...) but was also led in a general conversation type manner.
    The second interviewer focused on the financial side and tested your general knowledge and understanding.
    The third interviewer was more general relating more the the position and the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Having not taken a financial accounting course yet at the time, I had to crash study but questions were not too difficult for those with basic understanding.   Answer Question

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at KeyBank in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position second time. First time I passed successfully the technical interview for assessing my knowledge in Finance/ accounting and the result was excellent. Then I was invited to a panel interview where I met five interviewers. I was no impressed with their interviewing skills. I felt more confident at the interview then most of my interviewers. They seemed to be nervous and they just followed their checklists for the standard questions. After the interview I received a call from HR recruiter who told me that I was not selected. She was not able to explain a real reason for denial; she just told me that I have some negative attitude but she was not able to provide information why this attitude was perceived by interviewers. Within few months this position popped up again. I applied second time. I was interviewed again for the functional skills by other recruiter. She asked me same questions that I answered last time. The only difference she made when she asked about relation of EBITDA with cash flow. I forgot the full name of this acronym but I knew what is that about and I explained correctly the relations with the cash flow. The recruiter sent me an e-mail stating that I was not selected because my knowledge in Accounting is not strong enough for the position. I asked what questions I failed but she didn’t reply. Then I found that the position was cancelled.

    Interview Questions
    • At my first interview I was asked question: did you have a disagreement with your manager regarding your performance evaluation and how you handle that.   View Answer
