    Teller Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at M&T Bank.

    Interview Details

    After years of experience, I was called and asked if I would take a position as if I had never worked for a bank with beginner pay. It was not even the position I applied for. The conversation was very minuscule conversation about skills and it took several times of applying, for positions I was qualified for, before getting a call about a position I was over qualified for.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at M&T Bank.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my university and interviewed on campus about two weeks later. Interviewer was from their headquarters in Buffalo and was fairly strange/rude. Asked some pretty general fit questions and focused on specific parts of my resume. Asked what role I wanted to fill within the company - marketing, strategy, etc. Make sure you know something about M&T Bank and their operations. The program is also at their headquarters in Buffalo, NY so make sure you're okay with that before applying.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at M&T Bank.

    Interview Details

    Been through 3 interviews and awaiting a decision on whether I will get hired for the position. They seem like a good company to work for... Being a bank and playing in the market we're in, it should be a good time for consultative selling...

    Interview Questions
    • Role playing and being asked the typical rate questions (objections). Not difficult, just tried to make the person perceive value... In the absence of value, fees will be of concern.... This is a relationship business   Answer Question

    Insurance Proc Case Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted by a human resource representative for a phone screening. This occurred about two weeks after I applied online. At the end of the phone screening, an in-office interview was scheduled. Everyone in the office was extremely friendly, and the interview discussion was pleasant. The actual interview was one-on-one.

    Interview Questions
    • There were really no difficult questions. The first question was "tell me about yourself" which offers a great opportunity to showcase your experience. The most unexpected question was when the interviewer asked if I had thought about applying to a completely different position in the company, after I explained why I was really interested in the position that I was interviewing for.   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at M&T Bank in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication with HR. Standard questions were asked. Nothing out of the ordinary. I had a secondary interview with the hiring manager was superior. He was excited about the position and I believe was looking for someone with a diverse skillset. My third interview was an on-site interview. I met with the hiring manager and his boss, both VPs. I also met briefly with a project team leader. They were all looking for leadership qualities as well as technical skillsets necessary to properly manage a team.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was completely unexpected. However, I think the original thought for the position was expanded into more of a management role based upon my experience. Discussion was based upon my diversity of experience as well as my management experience. As a technical leader, the questions regarding my management style was discussed in some detail.   Answer Question
