Teller Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 2 days - interviewed at NewAlliance Bancshares in June 2008.
Interview Details – The usual behevioral internview. The HR first called me and we set up a date for a phone interview. She provided me with some information about the job. Then, she interviewed a day later, asking basic questions such as leadership skills and previous job skills. She was really nice and easy-going, as so were the other HR in the Manchester office.
Afterwards, I came in for a second interview, which was basically the same as the first. It was pretty short, about 30 minutes long and it was with the same HR that gave me the phone interview.
I had a third and final interview with the branch manager. I did not think that I did too well, but it turned out that she liked me and gave me the offer.
