I have been working at First National Bank Texas full-timePros
They make it possible to move up in the company at a good pace. There are positions open at different locations and you gain experience with different kinds of responsibilities. They balance the positive and negative feedback well so that you improve in different areas as you move up. Bank is privately owned so it feels slightly more family oriented then larger banks.Cons
Bank is open 7 days a week so it makes it's difficult to plan anything over the weekend. The hours are 9-7 Mon-Fri, 9-6 on Sat, and 11-4 on Sunday. If you are a Supervisor, manager or above you cannot have any schedule restrictions that might conflict with the banks hours.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Close the bank on Sunday. Not enough customers or accounts are opened to justify the salaries/wages paid. Give more discounts and perks to the employee's. Always on your feet and walking around, it is good exercise but becomes too much after the day is over. Have stand alone locations.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at First National Bank Texas.Interview Details
Pre-interview-Spoke to a recruiter and she asked my basic preliminary questions: "What salary are you looking for?"
First interview-Typical interview questions over contents on my resume: "Explain more about your position at..."
Second interview-Interview questions over the trainer position: "What are three qualities that make a good trainer?"
Third interview- Powerpoint presentation given to employees from different departments (HR, Learning and Development, Finance, etc), I had to create a 15-20 minute presentation over customer service. After my presentation I had a group interview with the same employees I had given my presentation to. They asked questions regarding the position; "Why do you think you would be a good trainer?" After my presentation I had a one-on-one interview with my "would-be" manager if I got the position, she asked questions regarding the trainer position as well: "Would you mind traveling?" After my one-on-one interview with the manager I sat down to speak/interview with two current trainers, they just asked about my educational background and I spoke to them about what the position actually entails.
Fourth (final) interview-45 minute facilitation presentation given to the same employees from my third interview, however this time I presented their material on customer service, it was extremely interactive. After my presentation I had a group interview with the employees I had given my facilitation presentation to (they were mainly looking to see if I took the feedback from my last presentation into account and improved on my presentation skills). They asked follow-up questions regarding the position: "Do you have anymore questions about the position?" After the group interview I spoke with the two current trainers again.Interview Questions
Negotiation DetailsThey gave me a base salary, and asked if I would accept it. I think there would have been room to negotiate however I did not.Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
- Most difficult aspect of the interview was the nerves of giving a 15-20 minute presentation. (Difficult interview process in general, however I can understand the different steps of the interview providing good insight into the candidate's ability to do the job.) Answer Question
