    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wachovia (Pottsville, PA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    Most contact was made by the recruiter. Process seemed to take extremely long. Almost seemed like there was some kind of communication disconnect between the store manager and the recruiter. Background check consitsted of fingerprinting. Actual Interview was about 1/2 hour long and contained questions about my sales style and work history.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had a difficult customer and how did you react to the situation.   Answer Question
    • Explain a situation where you went above and beyond the call of duty at your previous job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Starting salary was verbally presented to me by the recruiter. I asked for a bit more and after the recruiter checked in with the branch manager I was able to get a slight increase in base salary.
