Teller Interview

Anonymous Employee
Salem, VA

I applied online - interviewed at SunTrust in March 2012.

Interview Details – HR is in another state. They do a phone interview first which is crucial to getting into the branch for an interview with a manager. Be very friendly with the interviewer on a personal level so they will schedule you the interview with the branch manager.

Negotiation Details – You will not get more than $10, but negotiate up to 10 and you WILL get it :)

Senior Project Manager Interview

Senior Project Manager

Interviewed at SunTrust

Interview Details – The interview process was a little dis-jointed. Because of the disparate locations across SunTrust, I never met my boss face-to-face even though we had 2 interviews. There was no real agenda or objective criteria being used to evaluate me. It was a little disconcerting overall.

Interview Question – There were all pretty similar. None of the questions were overly difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate. The rate was set and was take it or leave it.

CSS Interview

Anonymous Employee
Ocala, FL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SunTrust in March 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for a position and was promptly contacted by the HR department in charge of initial interviews. They went through my resume and asked what interested me about the position. I was told what the salary and benefits would be and asked if I would like to follow up for a second interview.

I came in to the branch for a second interview with the branch manager, They asked a list of common interview questions starting with "Tell me about a time that you....." They were impressed and I was told that I would know the outcome within a week. They called and offered the job within another week. My hiring process took about 3-4 weeks from application to hire notice and I started the following week.

Interview Question – The most difficult part about the questions was that there were a lot that were similar and I would have to relate back to an answer I had already given to elaborate further from that point.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not have any negotiating room because I started at the top of the salary range for my position.

Licensed Personal Banker Interview

Licensed Personal Banker
Saint Petersburg, FL

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at SunTrust in January 2009.

Interview Details – This is a typical job interview at a bank. Generally, the first meeting is held with a branch manager. Unfortunately, for the most part, many of the branch managers in the region I worked seemed to be incompetent and unable to do a quality job. New management has come from Wells Fargo/ Wachovia and seem to be bringing in their people, possibly, they will have more professional abilities.

Interview Question – These are very typical interview questions that most people would expect...."Tell me a time when..."   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I was first offered only 28,000. When I had originally stated I needed 40,000. Eventually they came up to 36,500 with a "generous" commission structure, however, the amount paid per sold item was laughable.
