    This was a relatively simple process. After the preliminary phone interview and skill testing I was interviewed by two people. The questions to expect were provided ahead of time. The interviewers were very polite and gave me as much time as I needed/wanted to elaborate on answers or examples.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Wachovia (Charlotte, NC) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Applied for an internal posting; followed with preliminary phone screen and then interviewed in person by a panel. Interview format is behavioral ie open ended questions along the lines of "tell me about a time where you faced a difficult situation in the work place/overcame adversity, etc" Usually canned anecdotal responses do well in this format. The company may even provide you with a list of target subject matter to facilitate preparation. This is the format used for all but the most technical jobs. The company also highlights diversity as a core value, anything in support of that will be looked upon favorably.

    The team was very much into panel interviews and group decision making (but on the surface only, at the end management pressured the peers toward a different candidate).

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wachovia (Charlotte, NC) in August 2009.

    Interview

    First interview went well, however they wanted to hire someone internally so went with them instead. They like me enough to have a 2nd interview 2mos later. Interviewers were very detailed in their questions and asked me to provide feedback on their current integration (with Wells Fargo) efforts. In the interim between interview 1 and 2 the hiring manager resigned, never a good sign. Who quits their job in the middle of a recession unless it is a bad situation? Very desperate (a little too much) to bring somebody on board. Seemed to me they were having a brain drain with Wells takeover.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you change the screen design of this portal to be more user friendly?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had a bad feeling about them. Long decision making process + hiring less qualified internal candidates + Wells takeover + hiring manager leaving - desperation = I'll pass.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wachovia (Raleigh, NC) in August 2009.

    Interview

    First, you have a phone interview with the recruiter. Questions are similar to what you will find in the actual interview. All behavioral based questions, i.e. "Tell me about a time you had to coach an employee for not performing up to company standards "etc.. The next phase is being interviewed with the hiring manager (District Manager, and possibly another District Manager from neighboring region). More behavioral based questions. Interviewer usually follows predetermined guide. If you pass this, your almost there. The final test is a phone interview with the Community Bank President. These questions are more what you would expect.. What would you do if your branch was failing to meet sales numbers for the last 3 months. What would your first step be? what would your last step be? Have you had a similar situation? etc..

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your most difficult customer experience. How did you handle it, what were your actions, what was the result.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Like any industry, thier first offer is typically what they are willing to provide given what you represent. I renegotiated my salary and was able to get a 2k increase in their original offer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Wachovia (Charlotte, NC) in January 2009.

    Interview

    The hiring process depends on how you were referred to the job, I got the interview through networking so I had 2 interviews, the first interview was a 1-1 with the hiring manager, the second interview was a panel interview with the current team members. The interview was mostly behavioral

    Interview Questions

    • Had a couple UNIX related questions in the form of problem solving, which threw me   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was not able to however it was a somewhat junior role so I assume if it was a senior role on the team I would have been able to negotiate. The advice I would give is really know and have a good pulse on the salary level of the job you are applying for so that you are more prepared to "play hard ball" so to speak
