    Vice President Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Union, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ConnectOne Bank (Union, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very long and disorganized process. Took over 2.5 months for 4 interviews (2 phone, 2 in-person.) Awful process/experience for interviewees. Out of state travel not comp'd. Very drawn out experience and no one communicated with each other or interviewee in a timely manner. It very much seemed they did not care to value the interviewees time and money to travel. Very unprofessional process. HR rep asked the EXACT same questions during phone interview and in-person. Tip: dont have more than 1-2 interviews if you're not considering someone for a role and expecting to make an offer and dont waste their time.

    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Englewood Cliffs, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ConnectOne Bank (Englewood Cliffs, NJ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a voicemail from the recruiter that same day. I called back the following day and had an informal phone screening . At the end of the conversation the recruiter scheduled me for an in-person interview. I interviewed with 3 people (the recruiter, the head of the department and the culture officer). The interview was relaxed and conversational. I felt comfortable and not intimidated at all. I didn't hear back for a couple of weeks after some follow-up - was told the decision was still being made. Then I was asked to send in writing samples, which gave me hope. About a week after that I was called and told I was hired.

    Banking Relationship Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Englewood, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ConnectOne Bank (Englewood, NJ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    There's a few things I'd like to share about my
    Interview experience. #1, the process and people seem very enticing, however my 1st interview - the interviewer took 35 minutes to come and interview me. The second interview was rescheduled twice as I was being very flexible and patient with the process. Not once was my patience or diligence acknowledged by either interviewer. Come to think of it, both were very hauty individuals however seemed very sincere...

    First interview went well, second interview also went well... Before I went for the second interview I was offered another job at another bank, however wanted to engage myself in the culture of ConnectOne, and the recruiter at ConnectOne knew that and displayed no sense of urgency.

    Two days after my second interview, they emailed me (after engaging for nearly four weeks a call would have been more sincere), stating that they were not choosing me simply because I was pursing my Master's Degree. Which I honestly didn't have to tell them. I was just being in integrity.
    My course schedule would have never interfered with my ability to work. However, they didn't do their due diligence and even ASK my schedule before stating an flat NO to great talent.

    Any company that doesn't care enough to even ASK the schedule, and support you through highering your education to potentially better the company, is no company for me.
