    I worked at Great Western Bancorp part-time (Less than a year)


    Experience; Co-workers were amazing; learnt a lot while working for the company; promote from within a lot


    Training was not hands on. The hours were not enough for me.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time in thoroughly training your staff it makes a big difference.

    Lead Teller Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Great Western Bancorp (Omaha, NE) in April 2012.


    1st interview was with the branch manager. Pretty basic questions. Mostly related to banking experience, coaching, sales experience, and personality. 2nd interview was with the same branch manager AND another branch manager. Most questions were about job history, previous sales performance, and "What If" situations.

    Interview Questions

    • Any of the "what if" or "what would you do" questions   Answer Question
    • How would you motivate our tellers to sell?   1 Answer


    Told them the offer was too low in the 2nd interview for the duties I'd be required to perform. My counter offer was not only accepted, but exceeded. Great Western Bank managers WILL LOW BALL you everytime. Act professional and remember it is apart of the business. If you ask politely and give solid reasoning as to why you need to be paid more, you should recieve a phone call within a few days saying your counter-offer was approved.
