    Vice President Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Lloyds Banking Group.

    Interview

    You interview with HR first, followed by a phone interview, followed by in person interviews and a final interview with the MD of the respective group.
    A lot of candidates will be invited in to interview even though it is clear they will not get the job. Managers will usually recommend friends or acquaintances for jobs and know who they want to hire before the process even begins but they still go through the HR process so they can not be accused of nepotism.
    If you are interviewing for a position below Vice President, be ready to speak to the financial statements and how they work together.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The Managing Director has final say in the ultimate outcome, but the hiring manager is key and should lobby on your behalf. If you can't enlist the hiring manager, there will be no negotiation.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Lloyds Banking Group (New York, NY) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I meet with the CFO and the Managing director on the first day. We all got along really well and I got positive feedback form the recruiter. The next day I met with what would be my dorect report. Even the recruirter warned me that she had no personality but I was still taken aback. She was diconnected and distant.

    THis was a bacward interviw. Usually the potential direct hire is the easy interview and the higher ups are more hardass.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Lloyds Banking Group.

    Interview

    The application process was fairly standard: "cultural assessment", numeric and inductive reasoning test, video, interview, assessment centre. The assessment centre interview had three sections, motivation, industry awareness and competency. The video interview was similar. Some of the video interview questions were phrased quite awkwardly and it was tough to answer in 90 seconds.

    Face to Face "selection Process"

    Two people interview you, A bank manager of a different bank to your chosen, and some other joey who claims to be in charge of hiring potential candidate, some sort of HR. (probably sucking off a superior to get the job).

    The bank manager was fine, kept quiet and observant. The woman was too friendly/fake, would interrupt as you speak. Just stay calm, do not interrupt when they talk over you. Not the best interview process, HSBC has a better process and more professional approach.
