    I worked at Hancock Holding


    Gives branch managers approval on their own loans.


    While I was employed from 2004-2012 upper management made it clear to never contact human resources with a problem.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Hancock Holding.

    Interview Details

    Phone screening by HR followed by 2 in-person interviews. Manager was long-winded and didn't ask many questions. He, instead, spent an unusual amount of time on the granular job duties/tools vs. strategic interview questions to ascertain my fit for the job. This was a sign of things to come...lack of high-level understanding/approach.

    Interview Questions
    • Didn't really have many questions to answer. The supervisor was (is) very long-winded and granular. Lack of "big picture" perspective which was exhibited in interview.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    HR, during the phone interview, probed on current salary, vacation, benefits, etc. Once interviews were done, HR contacted me to make the offer. I didn't haggle much. But, I had other priorities for changing jobs.
