    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at First Tennessee Bank (Memphis, TN) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Formal and consistent with companies of this size and industry. Screening with HR. Interviewed with Hiring Manager, His boss, two of his peers, and two of my potential peers.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected. Typical questions around experience, strengths, weaknesses, etc... Very big on your leadership style and personality to ensure that you fit in from a cultural perspective. Very big on achieving a diverse workforce (an area they have struggled with historically).   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They knew what my expectations were initially and made an offer that was in line with my expectations. They low-balled me on base salary, however made it up on bonus and stock options that were more performance driven and completely acceptable to me. After being there 3 years, they have stayed true to providing this variable comp.

    Interview

    Fast, very detailed, fun, very professional. They asked a lot of different questions, you also got to ask questions. They congratulated me on doing excellent in school. I had two interviewers instead of one which made it weird at first due to constantly moving your eyes back and forth

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at First Tennessee Bank in August 2017.

    Interview

    I connected with one of their employees on Facebook and from there submitted an application online. As part of the application you will be required to take some tests to determine your aptitude with numbers, organization, etc. The tests are pretty basic and not very difficult. Then they do a phone screening, which was a phone interview lasting 20 minutes or so. They just asked me to give more detail about the work experience on my resume. Then they decide if they want you to come in for an in-person interview. They did ask me to come in, and I was interviewed by two people. Both were managers of different locations. The interview wasn't too stuffy, they didn't make me feel like I was being grilled. They asked a lot about teamwork experience and ability to work with people. They told me they were looking for personality and fit with the team.

    My only negative was that I felt that the interview went quite well and I had built up a good relationship with my contact there and then they NEVER reached out again. I even did the follow-up thank you email and nobody reached out, nobody told me that had decided to hire somebody else, etc. I just had to assume after a couple weeks that I didn't get the job, which felt a little unprofessional on their end.
