    Bank Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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!

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at SunTrust.

    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+ weeksinterviewed 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.

The interview went great the manager made me feel comfortable. On Tuesday I was offered the JOB :) Now I am going through the pre-screening process. I completed my finger prints and drug test, so now I am waiting on the results and the background check. I am super excited and cant wait

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions were basically getting to know me and my past experience. The only question that was a bit difficult for me was, Explain a time when a client was unsure of what they wanted and you overcame that situation? That one was not a question I was use to.   View Answer

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at SunTrust in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very long process. From application to actual phone interview it was one month. I had two phone interviews. First one was with a Regional Manager. The last one was the actual hiring manager.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked number specific questions. EX: what was the customer survey score when you started and then when you left?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was one geared for a new manager, not someone with lots of experience to offer. I was surprised and actually a little offended they would extend a AVP title and a low end salary knowing that I have been a VP Branch Manager for many years.
