    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SunTrust.

    Interview Details

    I landed an interview with SunTrust through a networking contact. I applied online after i was called for an interview. I met with my soon to be boss and was asked a series of behavioral and metrics based questions around recruitment practices. I also met with one of my soon to be teammates, and that interaction was more conversational and laid back.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about your cold calling experience. (not really a tough question, but i had to figure out what level of cold calling they were looking for and how it applied to their recruitment model and needs for the position in which I was applying)   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was a little room for negotiation. I am not afraid to ask for more, so i did, and ended up coming in higher than I expected. The negotiation on their end was a little weak, citing reasons for the salary around budgets and plans for other teammates. I ignored that and asked for what I wanted.

    Bank Teller Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at SunTrust.

    Interview Details

    Asked a million behavioral based questions that had nothing to do with the job. I'm overqualified so I felt a little surprised by the number of redundant questions. Tell me where you see yourself in 5 years? Where do you see yourself in one year? Tell me 5 strengths / 5 weaknesses? How would you deal with a rude person you worked with? Would it bother you if someone you worked with had a disagreement with you... Or what would you do/ how roils you handle working with someone you didn't like. Personally I found it to be relative and stilly.
    Decided I wasn't interested. -- and it was part time!

    Interview Details

    The interview was fairly smooth and easy. No hard questions at all. Just your basic interview questions such as, "what would you do in this situation"..."how would you handle this"...then they begin to give you insight on how the company works and how the hours, etc. will be. The interview overall was short, simple, and great.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SunTrust.

    Interview Details

    Some technical questions during the interview but primarily situational. They use a formal process of canned questions on the phone interview and use a more human approach in person. The team I interviewed with had a long history of working at SunTrust.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    They had room to negotiate but put on a very strong front to take it or leave it.
