    Was interviewed on campus and then offered a face to face interview. The second interview was at the office in Downtown Chicago. The atmosphere was very quiet with cubicles in the middle of the room surrounded by offices for managers.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wintrust Financial (Northbrook, IL).

    Interview

    One phone interview and one face to face. Quick offer, not much salary negotiation. It was one of the less intensive interview processes I have experienced. The questions were basic, but i feel that i am over qualified fro the position. I would rate it a 7 out of ten.

    Interview

    Met representatives on campus. Went to info session. Got an on campus interview. Really nice people, but I think they would like to hire people that are familiar with the local area since they are a community bank.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wintrust Financial (Rosemont, IL) in May 2013.

    Interview

    1- On the phone, informal interview. Questions about your resume, what your strengths are, and description of the position. 2- At the offices, First a writing portion, you have to read a short article on real estate and write a summary, most likely to value your attention to detail. Second meeting with CAO, still very informal, resume review basic getting to know each other and the position, no bs what if or situational questions. Got hired about a week later! all in all a pretty calm and not too nerve racking interview process. Just them getting to know you and seeing if you would fit their team

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Wintrust Financial.

    Interview

    First interview was by phone. Then an in person interview was set up in the suburban office. I was looking for a position in the city but was told all interviews were conducted at the suburban location. Took the interview but during the process was told that the job was atcually in the suburban location. I was disappointed that I was lead to believe the position was in the city when in fact it was not. It was a waste of everyones' time and an expensive commute for me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wintrust Financial (Chicago, IL) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Had my resume forwarded by an alum, sent it April 6, 2012. Took a month before I received an interview offer. Was invited to their downtown Chicago office. From there, I was taken into a boardroom with several other applicants and was told to fill out a paper application while we waited for our interviews. The paper applications requested general information and for things like education - even high school education. Then on the last page it asked for 3 references. There also several essay questions. Seemed pointless and should have had the candidates fill it out online. The interviews were set up to be in 30 minute intervals, I met with 5 VP's and 1 credit analyst. Interviews were mostly "walk me through your resume" or conversational. Personal relationship building, having some idea about commercial banking and having good questions would be key things to have. A lot of ex-JPM employees work here and they are looking for candidates who will stay long term. The primary location for this position, initially will be in Skokie, IL at their North Shore Bank - with occasional travel to the downtown office. Felt like the interview went pretty well. Did not receive a response till a week later saying they would have their decisions the following week. A week passed and I did not hear back - assuming they just forgot to email my rejection or I am in a secondary candidate pool.
