    Teller Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Astoria Bank (Lake Success, NY).

    Interview

    I was initially interviewed by a recruiter from HR. He asked my a series of questions to better understand me, my past experiences with sales and customer service. At the end of the interview he informed me that I would be a good fit for the Teller position but would have to wait until a part time position in my area would need a Teller.

    Two weeks later I was called regarding a position in a near by town. I was interviewed by the Branch Manager and the Supervisor. They asked me about my past experiences with sales and customer service. They did not tell me right away that I secured the position.

    Later that day I was called by my recruiter and was informed that I secured the position. The person from HR told me to attend the next orientation, which was held on Monday.

    During orientation I learned more about Astoria and was informed of my training site.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions regarding the Teller position will be about your past sales, customer service and cash handling experiences. You are expected to have outstanding customer service skills, you are expected to be sales driven and competitive, and have past cash handling experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations were eligible for me. If you have a lot of experience they may offer you a higher annual salary.

    Personal Banker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kew Gardens, NY
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Astoria Bank (Kew Gardens, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Received a call to go to it's headquarters in long island to interview with the HR recruiter. Had to take a simple math exam which I think was 30 mins timed. Met with the HR recruiter, she basically reviewed my resume with me and explained the position. This bank is a sales based bank, the most important thing to them is making sales. The HR recruiter had to perform a credit check on me before setting me up on an interview with the branch manager. She then set me up to have an interview with the branch manager and assistant manager. When I met with the branch manager and assistant manager they asked me the same old interview questions tell me a little about yourself, what were your job duties at your last employer, she then started asking me all these ridiculous behavioral questions about what to do in this type of situation, and if your co worker didn't know what she was doing what would you do etc. She then also explained to me that this bank is all about sales, that's the most important thing to them, and it doesn't go by the quantity of accounts you open it all matters by how much revenue u bring into the bank ridiculous because that branch was dead. She then made it seem as if I had the job because she started asking me personal questions which also had to do with performing this job. She also started going on and on about her previous job working for another company and I was pretty much thinking to myself okay lady your not with that company anymore.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Astoria Bank (Lake Success, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Got a call from a recruiter who had my resume. Wondered if the bank knew what they really were looking for. Felt a bit uneasy about the entire process. The company did not appear to be very marketing oriented, more like it was trying to compete on the basis of having multiple locations than on the basis of a brand identity or other product differentiation.
