    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SunTrust (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Due to geographical distance the first interview was conducted by phone followed up by an in-person interview with the entire team that I would be working with. They were very thorough and asked very specific questions about my work experience in the area of focus. The travel arrangements were not reimbursable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at SunTrust in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter within 2 days. He was excellent and we set up an appointment for the next day. I had the interview with the branch manager and it went very smoothly. I have over 11 years of banking experience and was more than qualified, and that made it easier. Later that day the recruiter called back to set up a phone interview with another manager for later the same afternoon. That lasted 30 minutes and also went very well. Recruiter contacted me the next morning with the offer, and because of my experience it exceeded what he even thought it would be!

    Negotiation

    I researched the salaries on Glassdoor and other sights, and had a realistic expectation, but because of my extensive background I asked for a little more. They actually came back a few thousand dollars higher than that. Be realistic and don't ask for an outrageous amount because they won't consider you. Get the job, prove your value and the money will come.

    Client Service Specialist Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at SunTrust.

    Interview

    The interview was very behavioral. I was escorted into the office of our area manager and was asked a variety of questions; the topics ranged from what I would do in certain situations (angry clients, clients asking for privileged information, lots of clients waiting in line, etc.). There was a discussion in the first thirty minutes on what the salary was going to be. There was little room given for negotiation and I had little leverage, as I was not prepared for this topic so early in the interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at SunTrust.

    Interview

    Applied online and within a couple of days got a call from the recruiting manager. She asked a few basic HR questions and forwarded my information to the Branch Manager. I got a call from the BM to schedule an in-person interview. The interview was difficult, with an extreme focus on sales rather than great customer service while finding the best products for their customers. Also, the two BM's I interviewed with gave off a superiority complex that wasn't very pleasant. All and all, a learning experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SunTrust (Macon, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview went well, the 2 managers that interviewed me were great. The questions were the normal. They asked what would I do if I had a problem with a employee. Basically work it out and show respect to them. Listen to their side of complaint and tell them what they did wrong or explain how they could have approached the situation differently.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SunTrust (Richmond, VA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    During a phone interview with a SunTrust Human Resources VP, I was told I was the first candidate to be advancing to the next stage of the interview process starting as soon as they could find other candidates to interview with me. I week went by and I heard nothing back from SunTrust. When I emailed and called, I was notified that the things I was told during the phone interview were never said, that they already had several "highly qualified" candidates, and they were very close to a hire. I am still very confused and I do not believe I am getting the truth to why I was not given an interview after being told I would.
