    I have been working at Hancock Holding full-time (more than 3 years)


    Their core values run true with my personal values. Stellar customer service is the foundation we are built upon and what I feel sets us apart from our competitors.


    After merger with Whitney Bank there is still much division between legacy Hancock employees and legacy Whitney employees in some markets. Still working on getting everyone moving forward together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the employees asking for more. Look at your customer facing associates and let's start our brainstorming there. It seems management already has gotten this memo and started this mindset for 2015.

    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.
    Accepted Offer
