    It seemed like this was a new manager that was there to clean up the team and make their mark. 1:1 Interview process was more of a rushed review with very few questions. Learned more about what the job entailed and more importantly what expectations the manager felt were imperative.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at SunTrust.

    Interview

    It took a while to get an interview set up with this company. Once I was contacted an interview was scheduled. I was not hired for the position. I received no feedback other than some one else was chosen. I was also told I was under consideration when I visited the Bank. I think if I was one of the finals, I should have received a telephone call thanking me for my time and some details on why I was not chosen for the position.

    Interview Questions

    • It seems interview questions are generic. Interviewer read them from a work sheet.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at SunTrust.

    Interview

    The interview process was quite complicated. You must first see a recruiter. If the recruiter approves of you then you will undergo a second interview with the manager at the location that you applied for. If they approve, then you may either have another interview with the manager's boss or you may go back to the recruiter again. From there you will discuss compensation and make sure you get it in riding because they will tell you a certain amount and then when you get in the position, you find out that you are stuck with much lower pay than what was previously discussed. You will then go to what is called "Discover" which is a 1-2 day event in downtown that tell you about Suntrust and their mission statement for the most part. After that you will be directed to "Suntrust University" where you will be trained and caught up to the software and job functions that are expected of you. this training can last anywhere from 2 weeks to 1 month. You will go back and forward from Suntrust University to the location that you will be working in during your training time frame.

    Make sure you get everything in writing or else they will try to pay you less and it would be your word against theirs.
