Interview Question – Greatest Weakness and Greatest Strength Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SunTrust.
Interview Details – I had past banking experience so I had cash ordering experience for the vault on the teller line. Also I was familiar with selling and referring bank products. I felt very confident but not cocky and we laughed a lot as well on the interview. It was a simple discussion and felt like a conversation instead of an interview. The follow up interview was with the area manager and she asked about my background and again it felt like a discussion. I felt a little more pressure with the area manager but only because I was so excited. The process happened very fast and I got a call back within a few days with an offer.
Interview Question –
The area manager was concerned because I was more operations instead of sales.
Just be relaxed, dress professionally, be the part and smile. I found that when I went in completely unprepared and clear headed is when I seem to have the best interviews. I have gone on many interviews because I like to keep my skills sharp, but just be calm, talk slow and clear. Be honest, and keep answers simple because you can "talk yourself out of a job".

Negotiation Details – I told them my bottom line based on my experience and they met it and even went slightly over what I was expecting. I even tried to negotiate a little bit but the offer they gave me was clearly final.
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at SunTrust in June 2013.
Interview Details –
I started the interview process with a phone interview in mid-April. Within a couple weeks, an in-person interview was scheduled with 3 people at the office. One of the interviewers was the hiring manager, who had also conducted the phone interview.
I really enjoyed talking with all 3 individuals. The office was pretty nice, but it is quite a haul to park downtown and get to where you need to go. It is a bank HQ, so you don't expect anything too flashy, but it was decorated tastefully.
Most of the questions revolved around telling them about my experience rather than situational questions. It was relaxed and I thought all 3 interviewers were very open to my questions and even talked about their personal lives. I was a bit taken aback when the hiring manager said they were having a tough time finding candidates and that I was one of three that was "adequate."
So what was it a negative experience? Simple. Like I am finding with many companies, if they decide to go in another direction, they don't have the decency to let you know. This is perfectly fine if all they did was take a resume or conduct a brief phone interview. But if you spend a good chunk of your day in their office, I think it's just common courtesy to let you know their decision. I followed up with the HR contact shortly after the interview on May 3rd. He told me to call him back on the 10th, which I did and left a message. He had always been good about calling me back. I never heard from them again.
Fortunately, I found a job with a great company a little after this experience. I guess I am fortunate I did not get an offer because this behavior speaks volumes about a company.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at SunTrust in June 2013.
Interview Details – It took them about three days to call me after applying online. They do a phone interview and then schedule the in person interview. The in person interview is not all that difficult. They ask you about your experience, why you want to work at Suntrust, what you know about Suntrust, etc. If you are hired part time, you are expected to stay part time for 12 months so you can't apply for full time openings that might become available in that time

Interview Details – It took a long time to get a call for an interview about a month from my first phone evaluation. I met with the branch manager, I was 10 minutes early but she still had me wait in the lobby for almost 30 minutes. When we finally did meet she was very talkative and didnt ask me many questions, she wanted to tell me that the job would be a challange because the tellers were "set in thier ways" She was kind though and walked me out.
Interview Question – The most difficult questions were when she would ask, "give me an example of a time when you had an irate customer, how did you handle it?" The example questions are frusturating. What if you've never had an irate customer? View Answer
