    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Susquehanna Bancshares in January 2015.

    Interview

    Apply online, wait for a phone interview from HR, wait for store manager to call and set up in person interview, second in person interview, wait for offer. Process took 3 months.I rejected the offer because the salary was low and no where near what I was asking. They came back $.25 higher. There was a lot of what would you do in this situation type questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Susquehanna Bancshares.

    Interview

    Two interviews. One by phone from hr. One in person with branch. Then if your okay'do by branch then your background check which can be up to 7 days. And then training. Which is only every two weeks, so you might have to wait three weeks to even go to training. You have to go to Lancaster pa for two weeks for teller training. They do pay for a hotel and you do get reimbursed later. Good training people and in branch training is good. I suggest if your trainer in branch doesn't help ask for a new one if you serious about this career.

    Interview Questions

    • Most q's are what would you do in this situation or tell me about a time when you..... Make sure your prepared and push your sales skills.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Somewhat. They are not gonna give you more then the newest hire got unless you really show you can push.

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Susquehanna Bancshares (Lititz, PA).

    Interview

    My interview was by panel on three different occasions. My advice is if you really want to work for this company don't be in a hurry. Decisions on hiring are not reached quickly. Between first interview and offer I waited a month before I heard anything.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing comes to mind as difficult or unexpected it was a fairly vanilla interview. They did however ask to take my fingerprints for the back round check which I found rather odd.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Here is what we offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Susquehanna Bancshares (Carlisle, PA).

    Interview

    I had 2 interviews. The first was a phone interview with HR. After that you have one with the branch manager. The BM who interviewed me didn't have any questions other than, "tell me about the jobs you had before, and what you liked and didn't like about them." Then she told me about the dress code. She called me back for an "informal interview," to see how I would get along with her head teller. HR called me after to offer me the job. Don't ask for more than they are offering, b/c they won't budge.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was offered 13. I asked for 15. I told the HR dept. I would think about my offer and get back to them, I waited a few days, and called. They were not willing to budge.
