    Teller Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wachovia in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online & took a personality test, received an email a few days later inviting me to a group panel interview. a week later, i was called by the recruiter for a 1on 1 interview for a specific branch & 5 days later, received job offer.

    Tips:
    Personality test - choose strongly agree or strongly disagree ONLY and you might have to fib a bit because they ask if you've ever lied in your whole life; of course, everybody has ... but don't admit to that.

    Group panel interview - IF you are extremely confident in your abilities and skills, as well as have a kick ass answer, volunteer to answer the question first so that you demonstrate your leadership abilities but don't do it all the time so that you also showcase how much of a team player you are.
    **I think its better to let one or two other people answer before you for the first couple questions so you get a feel for the other candidates and possibly can come up with a better answer than theirs. Once you see who your real competition is, then you can start answering first when they ask for volunteers.

    1 on 1 interview - Come professionally dressed. If you are a women with medium to long hair, tie it up in a sleek bun or ponytail. Get your nails done, get your eyebrows done & make sure your shoes are in good condition. Men, trim your nails, clean them, keep your hair slicked back. Come with a tie, make sure your shoes aren't scuffed. They want to know you pay attention to detail.

    Try not to lie about anything when asked for specific situations - they look at your eyes to see if you are lying (Most people look to up and to the left when they lie), they monitor your behavior for nervousness and are really vigilant when it comes to any inconsistencies with something you've said.

    Know the company's accomplishments, i.e. any awards they've won in the past two years, the values, etc! I cannot stress this enough -- I am confident this is why I got my job -- because I knew the awards they've won and why it was important to me, why the values of Wachovia were similar to my own, etc. This helps you stand out from everybody else.

    & Ask questions when they ask at the end of the interview if you have any questions!!! "What do you see for the future of this company?" "How successful has this particular branch been?", etc.

    Treat this job interview as if its the career of your dreams, even if its not what you want to do for the rest of your life.

    Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Wachovia in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I went to a group interview. Then I interviewed with a DM and store manager. Lastly, I interviewed with another DM and the community bank president. Standard questions to share past experiences in managing others. I went a step further on my own and created a business plan, along with a 30 day plan to initiate my longer term plans.

    What was not standard was the way the DM and CBP were talking about other TM's, gossiping really. In the interview! I was appalled by their lack of professionalism in doing so and it left me with an extremely negative view of their leadership. This opinion has only grown after working with them for several months now.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Wachovia in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Had a face-to-face group panel interview. Each one spoke about their team's area of responsibility and I was given a general description of the job that they were hiring for. They asked about my employment history and how I think I can contribute to their initiatives. I was able to articulate well and though I didn't have the Wachovia experience they required, informed them that I am a quick learner. Explained to them thoughout my career, I have been put in that situation where I have had to learn the project assignment in a short timeframe and have performed succesfully. It was a good interview.
