Assistant Branch Manager Interview

Assistant Branch Manager
Atlanta, GA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SunTrust in April 2013.

Interview Details – Initial contact through a recruiter, then from local management.

Interview Question – All very cut and dry stuff. My best advice is to be honest and genuine. The places in this company where those values are still worth something are actually still very good places to work,   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't so much of a negotiation phase as there was an offer to accept or reject. I would be very honest with your compensation expectations, as they tend to not play the "high/low" game without some proof of current compensation. This isn't a place to come in and get a "pay day" initially, but in the right situation, you can earn substantial increases quickly.

Difficult Interview

Assistant Branch Manager Interview

Assistant Branch Manager
Powder Springs, Cobb, GA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at SunTrust in April 2011.

Interview Details – Unemployment in Ga is hovering over 10% so needless to say I was very excited to land an interview. I was laid off along with several other employees from another bank who was going through financial reorganization. I applied on SunTrust website and was fortunate to receive an invitation for a phone interview. I was even more excited to land a face to face interview.
I interviewed with the Br. Manager and the Regional Manager. The interview appears to be going well until the Br. Manager asked the Regional Manager if he had any questions for me. The Regional Manager first question was in a very accusatory tone he asked me “Companies do not lay-off their best employees why were you laid-off”. He followed that question with another unbelievable question he asked “with a strong resume as yours why are you applying for a job like this”. I felt like he has no idea what is going on in the job market. Then he said to me I have seen many candidates with similar background to yours fail at this job because they only take the job to get into the company. He said the company policy sates you must remain in a position for a year before a transfer will be approved. He also said to me that I will hate coming to work every day. He made a few more surprising statements which caught by surprise.
My advice for other candidate is, if you really want to work for Sun Trust in the NE region be prepared for all types of questions…even questions that appear to discredit you.
