    Relationship Banker II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at M&T Bank.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied for the Relationship banker 1 position. The process took exactly 2 weeks from time of application to the time they offered the job. I applied Wednesday night and got a call from the recruiter the following morning. She asked pretty basic questions to determine my sales and customer service skills and personality as well as a few behavioral questions. The call was about 30mins long and at the end she offered the Relationship banker 2 position and said someone would contact me in a couple days to schedule an interview with a branch manager.
    I had to call the following monday to check on the interview with branch manager because I hadnt received a call. Later that day someone from HR called to set up interview the next day.
    The Branch manager I interviewed with was very stern looking but pleasant. He asked every sales and customer service behavioral question you can think of so be prepared and have very good real life examples as well. It lasted about an hour and he told me if I am chosen then I should hear back in about 2 weeks.
    I received a call 8 days later with an offer over the phone but i requested it in writing so I could review it. The offer was pretty good but I countered and ended up getting an extra 4k/yr. I would definitely advise you to counter whatever offer they give you especially if its less than you want, but they probably wont go above an additional 4-5k unless you have additional degrees or licenses.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at M&T Bank.

    Interview Details

    The interview was nice and casual. The Interviewer asked a lot of questions concerning the things on my resumee. It lasted about 45 minutes, and we often got off topic. It was an interview mostly focused around getting a feel of what type of person I was and how well I could converse.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at M&T Bank in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    My first round was on campus. The interviewer was very friendly knowledgable since she manages the MDP students. The process was structured less like a typical interview because it felt as if I was just having a conversation.

    The second round, they bring you into the office. I had two consecutive interviews, and again the process was very pleasant.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at M&T Bank in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, then took a test, after a few days someone called me to schedule a phone interview with the recruiter. The recruiter asked me about my salary expectations and then asked me a few questions like how I would like to be managed and how would I help an upset customer. Right away she passed me for the second interview. Her assistant called me again to schedule the second interview. It was pretty straight forward.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at M&T Bank in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Had one phone screen through on campus recruiting with a VP, he asked mostly behavioral questions and a few "if you had this problem in an excel spreadsheet, how would you go about handling it?" case type questions. Fairly easy interview, the guy was really nice. Within 1.5 weeks was notified that I was invited to final rounds. Indicated preferences for position placements (variety of departments and locations like DE, Baltimore, Buffalo), and got my top choice. They flew me to Buffalo for super day, and had four interviews including lunch with a potential co-worker.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at M&T Bank.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my schools website early in the Fall semester and interviewed on campus. They send a list of open positions before your interview, which you have to narrow down for the interview. About 40 options explained in great detail on that list. Interview was about 30 minutes long, mostly behavioral questions, nothing too out of the ordinary. My interview was not with an HR representative.
