    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First Republic Bank.

    Interview

    The recruiter was horrible. He spoke to me twice, the first time he was completely negative and said I was not a good fit for the position. The second time he said I was a great fit and wanted me to take the assessment. He did not follow up and I had to reach out numerous times to just to get updates.

    Sr Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at First Republic Bank (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Had more than 10 rounds of interview which was exhausting. However it gave me an idea of who I'd be working with and made me feel comfortable that I am getting into the right culture for me. There was a brief phone screen by the hiring manager initially after which he seemed to be sold. The rest of the interviews were essentially for the team to feel ok.

    HR Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at First Republic Bank (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The recruiter reached out, played it off as a casual conversation via phone (because I expressed that I wasn't entirely sold on leaving my current company). It turned out to be a pretty black/white phone interview.. Sure, I guess. I agreed to an in-person interview, which was scheduled just fine. I arrived, was escorted by the same recruiter that I spoke with over the phone. During the course of my time at headquarters, I met with 7 people in the department (what I believe was the full team of who I would be working with if I were to get the job). It was quite a marathon, and each individual was quite different from the other. What I think that the team and recruiter did not realize, was that I was interviewing them in return. I would think that the recruiter would notify the team (since it was actually HIS team) that I was a passive candidate; someone that might be worth trying to impress in return. Maybe he did tell them this, but I wouldn't know because it most definitely didn't feel this way. All but one or two of the panel members were very cold in character, and I wasn't sold. The recruiter himself was repeating his same anecdotes and statistics that he relayed to me in our first phone call a few days prior; this made me feel as though he didn't value me as a candidate enough to remember what he said to me just a few days before.

    After surviving this marathon of chilly interviews, I ended up emailing the recruiter the next day to let him know that I was resigning from the application process, telling him that I don't think it was a good fit. He never responded. I thought that this was highly unprofessional.
