    I applied online – interviewed at Regions Financial.

    Interview Details

    Thought the process went well, went through 3 interviews and was told I would hear something soon. Heard nothing, tried to contact HR as well as the actual branch myself, were difficult to get ahold of and was told nothing helpful, just that they were still interviewing people and I was under consideration. Really wanted to work for the company and liked the position, unfortunate the way HR is ran.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Regions Financial in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview first is pretty standard. The typical experience questions and some off the cuff questions to judge your communication skills. Then came an in person interview with a branch and assistant branch manger with typical situational questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you and your manager disagreed about something and how did you resolve it?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is some wiggle room. I got extra money by just asking and giving some of my prior experience to the recruiter. The next day the recruiter called back to say they could offer me the job with what I asked for.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Regions Financial in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had 3 interviews first with HR then with the branch manager and finally with another branch manager and a regional manager. Then I was contacted by a different HR person who gave me a conditional offer then after a background check I was given a real offer.

    I already had my insurance license so I had a leg up on the competition, most of the FSS get their license after they have been at the job for a while.

    Negotiation Details
    It was pretty straight forward, they offered me more than what I said I was expecting so I did not negotiate much.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Regions Financial in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was brief: 30 min or less, with only the manager.

    She asked general questions:
    what are the other banks you worked like?
    do you do group huddles/morning meetings at your current location?
    are you passive or aggressive?
    are you ok with saying no to a customer?

    I was not offered the FSS position, due to lack of loan experience. But offered a teller position. And hopefully from there I can cross train.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate salary based off what I was currently making and they matched it.
