    I applied online – interviewed at Woodforest National Bank.

    Interview Details

    Poor phone interview process. Waste of my time. How can you tell based on just a few interview questions that lasted only a few minute. My suggestion is to have sit down interviews. Interview was mostly on how many hours you are going to work and willingness to work 7 days a week.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Woodforest National Bank in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had applied online for the position after seeing their posting at a Walmart location. After 2 weeks received an email from HR telling me to call them in order to schedule an phone interview which I found really awkward since usually you either receive a call from HR scheduling an interview or you get a link to schedule the interview online yourself by choosing an available time slot. Called HR several times only in order to get a voicemail and leave a message and apparently they will call you back. I also sent an email repeating all the details but never heardy anything. 2 or 3 weeks later I got an automatically generated email saying that the position I've applied for has been already filled. Very unprofessional and I'll never apply again.

    I applied online – interviewed at Woodforest National Bank.

    Interview Details

    Apply online, pass a phone interview, land a face to face and get hired on the spot. Woodforest would do better to focus on candidates with customer service and cash handling experience. People with previous bank experience need not apply because whatever you think you know ...will get in the way of what you need to know.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Woodforest National Bank.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview process was fairly easy. After your application is submitted you will usually receive a call from the recruiter for a general phone interview and then a second call from the local manager for a face to face interview. If they are interested they will send you for a drug test and set up a start date. A few additional pieces of paper work are required to start.

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions are pretty general and pertain to customer service and working with a close team.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Woodforest National Bank.

    Interview Details

    There is an online assessment that takes about an hour to complete once you finish your application. There is next a phone interview that lasts about 15-20 min. If that is successful, you will have an in-person interview with the Branch Manager at the location you applied for. Interviewing questions are standard for the most part.

    Interview Questions
    • What is a way that you have gone above and beyond to exceed customer expectations?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    You have to give a lowest rate and a highest rate that you are willing to take. I didn't see the point in the highest rate. I am not sure who out there would decline a higher offer. Aim higher than you want. If they want you, they will still offer you what they are willing to pay. If you aim low, they will pay you low.
