    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at U.S. Bank (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and then a few weeks later was asked to come in for an in-person interview. I met with three different analysts for 20-50 minutes each. The first interview was the longest and consisted mostly of me talking about my resume and what I wanted to achieve in the position. The second focused mainly on my past experiences and how I see myself progressing in the next 5-10 years. The last consisted mostly of HR overview and final questions that I had.

    Universal Banker Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at U.S. Bank (Chicago, IL) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online after finding the job posting on their website. Was contacted three days later by the branch manager who set up an interview for the following week. The manager was very personable, asking the standard personality and situational questions and having me do a short, informal roleplay involving selling a pen. I left with a good feeling about the position and was contacted a few days later for a second interview, this time with a regional manager. This interview was mostly painless, and was more of a conversation about the specific expectations of the role. I think he just wanted to see that I had the right personality and mindset, as he was very easy going and personable. Literally three hours after the interview, I received a call from HR extending me an offer. Was given a hire date and scheduled for fingerprinting and cleared for background check (no drug test).

    Interview Questions

    • Similar to most other bank interview questions I had. Just have some answers for times with a difficult customer, times you gave superior customer service, and times you overcame specific objections to close the sale. As far as the roleplay, just make sure you ask a few qualifying questions before you improvise a sales pitch.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The branch manager asked my salary expectation during the initial interview, which she presumably forwarded to HR. My actual offer was .50/hr less than what I had asked for, but in line with salaries posted on glassdoor so I accepted without further negotiation.
