MDP-Retail Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at M&T Bank.

Interview Details – After submitting my resume I was selected to have an on-campus interview. This interview was with one person, and it was really laid back. Less than two weeks later I got an email asking me to come in house. For my in-house interview I interviewed with two people, and then had a phone interview right after. Three days later I had a final phone interview. This interview was the most difficult.

Interview Question – The final phone interview questions were the toughest. They we all very long, and required multiple parts.   Answer Question

Rochester, NY

I applied through college or university - interviewed at M&T Bank in January 2014.

Interview Details – I applied for the position on my school's website and was immediately given a phone interview after a quick resume and cover letter drop in application.

I applied through college or university and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at M&T Bank in November 2011.

Interview Question – What questions do you have about M&T?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate. I don't think it's possible, but it's worth exploring, particularly for those who are in the mid-Atlantic regions.

MDP Interview

Anonymous Employee

I interviewed at M&T Bank in October 2013.

Interview Details – The interview and hiring process was relatively easy. I applied through my school's career database and had an on-campus interview. Afterward, I was flown to the location of my proposed position where I had a more intense interview to see if I could fill the position. It wasn't bad though as they were just making sure that I made the qualifications and would perform the job well.

Interview Question – Nothing was specifically too difficult. All of the questions were fit questions and asking about myself.   Answer Question
