    Retail Personal Banker Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fifth Third (Cincinnati, OH) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Initial interview was done on the phone. Generic interview questions were asked. I used the STAR method to answer each question successfully. Then moved on to the second interview on phone with HR director; she asked basically the same generic interview questions. I interview well, so I didn't find it challenging. Unfortunately, the pay was too low for me to pursue: I have an MBA and was was more interested in a corporate-level job. I met a recruiter at a job fair, had a great conversation, so I mostly pursued the interview to boost my network.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fifth Third (Cincinnati, OH) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Easy, relaxed, and laid back. Not what I was expecting from such a large corporation, but in a good way. The interview process was easier than I had expected. I interviewed on the phone with the recruiter, then in the office with 2 different managers and 1 staff. They were all 1 on 1 interviews so nothing too stressful.

    Financial Center Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fifth Third (Nashville, TN) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I reached out to a recruiter on LinkedIn and she happened to be the hiring recruiter for the position I was interested in. I had one screening phone call with her where she asked very basic questions about my experience and told me about the available position. An interview with the hiring manager was set up for about a week later. When I got there, it was me across from the market manager and two area managers at a board room table-very intimidating and intense! They proceeded to grill me for the next 45 minutes. Although my current position is heavy with operations, I have a strong background in sales that they kind of "looked over." Much to my surprise, they didn't even ask me about my management style or situational questions. They strictly wanted to know what I would do to generate sales in the branch. Then they told me they'd get back with me by the end of the week and waited two additional weeks to tell me they were moving forward with another candidate.

    Interview Questions
