Enterprise Execution Services Internship Position Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and interviewed at SunTrust.

Interview Details – Basic behavioral questions, from tell me about yourself to situational questions (very group oriented questions). Highest point in college to lowest point in college. In the "higher discussion" portion of the interview, they want to see if you have analyzed and compiled reports. I personally have not analyzed many things but spoke strongly about the finance classes I have taken and in progress of.

Interview Question – How would you go about cutting costs?   Answer Question
