    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Popular Community Bank (Miami, FL) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Initial contact is from an HR manager. The 1st interview was with the HR manager and hiring manager; 30 minutes each. The HR manager gives you standard behavioral questions straight from a text book. The hiring manager gives you the details of the job and questions your experience and capabilities. A second interview is scheduled if you are considered. This time you meet with the SVP of your department. He/she is trying to see how you are as a person. They want to know if you will be a good fit. Finally, the HR manager will contact you with the offer. They will lowball you so you will have to negotiate. I doubt anyone will get more than the average pay for the position. Benefits are solid and the culture is very relaxed.
