Portfolio Analytics Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Union Bank N.A..

Interview Details – I was contacted for a phone interview, asking basic history and work experience as well as financial background. It seemed like the interviewer was looking for a few key words to be brought up, especially pertaining to an Excel background, and anything with risk or cash flows. The second day took about three hours with three different people, but it was all very relaxed. They seemed more interested in getting to know me than quizzing me on experience. Mostly behavioral questions about my interests and past work experience.

Credit Associate Interview

Credit Associate
Irvine, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Union Bank N.A. in September 2011.

Interview Details – I applied online and got a response after 2 weeks to set up a phone interview. After the phone interview I was invited to come in along with 20 other candidates for a presentation given by the Credit Associate Manager. We were then instructed to write a one page essay answering our understanding of the position and why we wanted it (due by the end of the week). The final step in the process is a panel interview with mostly behavioral questions and some technical questions. My advice is to actively participate during the information session and take thorough notes to use when writing the essay.

Operations Management Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Union Bank N.A. in June 2010.

Interview Details – I interviewed on 2 separate occasions, for two different positions. Both were preceded by a phone 'screening' interview. The first interview went well, and I was told they'd get back to me 'either way.' Never heard a word.
The second interview didn't go too well. One of the interviewers just didn't like me. She might as well have been wearing a sign. She started asking me about qualifications that I didn't have, but which weren't listed in the job posting (i.e. bi-lingual skills). Here's a news flash to employers: list ALL of the job requirements in the posting - otherwise you're just wasting everyone's time.

The interviews left me with a poor impression of Union Bank. I don't think I'd want to work there, or bank there.

Interview Question – Do you have California health and insurance licenses?   Answer Question
