    Trust Accounts Client Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Wilmington, DE
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, DE
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wilmington Trust in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by the HR representative in the Buffalo head office of their recent merging partner M&T Bank. I was then set up for a phone interview with an HR rep in Wilmington. The interview was pretty surface level and quick and she passed along my information for a potential 2nd phone interview with my would-be supervisor in Minneapolis. The second round phone interview was much more in-depth. I was asked two questions in a row about the importance of being detail oriented and why paying attention to the details is important. I answered the first one well but when immediately asked an almost identical questioned I struggled to come up with another example or elaborate on a different point. At the end of the interview she explained how she couldn't stress enough the importance of details. She told me that the next round would be in-person interviews when she flew into the Wilmington office but I was never contacted.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Wilmington Trust.

    Interview Details

    The process was frustrating. The recruiter scheduled me and then told the interviewer the wrong day. When I showed up, the interviewer was upset (even after seeing my confirmation email) and unprepared. After finishing the interview process, I was asked to re apply for a different position and had to interview again. Then I waited for over a month.

    Interview Questions

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmington, DE
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wilmington Trust in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, contacted by recruiter for initial screening, and scheduled for an in-person interview. Questions were mostly basic and straight-forward -- why do you want to work here, why this position, strengths, weaknesses, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer knew I was applying for this position while still employed --he asked if my boss knew I was here, and if I used a vacation day for the interview. I thought this question was inappropriate and crossed a line.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Wilmington Trust in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    My process was atypical. I found this job through networking and don't believe there was ever a posting. I interviewed with 2 or 3 people and ended up getting hired on a part-time basis (hired full-time after 6 months).
    The typical process is 3 to 4 interviews. To be honest, my particular office is starving for decent people, so if you have half a brain and can articulate, you'll probably get the job.

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at Wilmington Trust in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    Interned with the company for an extended period of time. Applied for the job by sending my resume to HR. got a call and went in for an interview with the head of the office I was interviewing for. Serious interview which lasted about 30-45 minutes. Several tough questions, some basic interview questions as well. Asked about multitasking skills, familiarity with microsoft office, exceptional accounting skills, financial skills are a plus, communication skills are a must, taking the initiative and being professional with setting up appointments with other employees cannot be a challenging task. If you can prove to them you are capable of those things you will more than likely be able to get a job at the center building (corporate headquarter) or the building up the street from the center (the plaza). Internships are competitive due to the fact that the company has only 3,000 total employees worldwide.
