    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    The process took 4 days - interviewed at Wachovia in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The position was posted on a job website. Applied via website and received and an invitation to take the assessment test via computer. Just a few days after the assessment test was taken, another email was sent to schedule a telephone interview with me. Scheduled the date and time. On the date and time of interview, recruiter asked numerous questions about one of the three employers I listed on my resume. After about five minutes or so, the telephone interviewer asked why I wanted the position with the company and I explained my reason why and afterwards it was stated by the recruiter that he still did not know why I would want said position. Explained to recruited again why I was interested in the position with this firm and the called was ended abruptly.

    Later I received an email indicating that I was no longer going to be considered for the position.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Stuart, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Stuart, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wachovia in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I first received a call from an HR person who had specific questions regarding my experience. When she was satisfied with those answers she asked if I had time to do the complete phone interview. I said yes. She worked from a script of specific questions with the usual behavioral interview questions: Can you think of a time when: met a goal, solved a problem, etc. She said I would be followed back up to do an in person interview. It was a couple of weeks before I heard back, although she did give me an HR number to follow up with. They said it would be another week or so. Then another HR person called to schedule the meeting and told me where to meet. The interview was with an area manager and a current Store Manager. They again had very specific scenarios to ask me and wrote like crazy keeping notes. You will need very specific situations on meeting goals, $ and how accomplished. They called me in two weeks to advise I did not get the position.

    The process took 3 months - interviewed at Wachovia in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was rigorous. From my first initial phone interview to the actually first in person meeting took about 3 weeks. The problem solving and personality test was structured much like the GMAT. I was given no time to prepare, rather just directed to take the test during the 2nd meeting.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months - interviewed at Wachovia in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    Long and drawn out. There was a total of 5 interviews along with 2 phone interviews. The interviews consisted of group and individual. It was some of the more typical questions and some situational. It seemed that once HR was involved for the background check, that took about 2 weeks to process through.
