    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Akron, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FirstMerit (Akron, OH) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Talent Acquisition will call you to discuss a time for an interview. You will then be scheduled to meet the branch manager at the respective location. The interview is relatively untechnical , and the interviewer is friendly. Even though they deny it, the person conducting the interview is the one making the decision. After the interview, you will again be contacted by the Talent Acquisition specialist for an offer. It's weird how FirstMerit hides behind the Talent Acquisition title.

    Teller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hinckley, OH

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FirstMerit (Hinckley, OH) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Simple interview process. Quick phone screening, and then an interview is set up with the Branch Manager. On arrival, all of the tellers & the branch manager were all incredibly nice. The questions were just about my previous jobs, mostly. I was told they were interviewing many candidates and it would be a few weeks until they had a decision. I never heard back, but it was still a very nice interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FirstMerit (Flint, MI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Filled out an application for three positions online. the teller position was PT but I figured maybe something would come available full-time eventually, but PT was okay for a temporarily. Took less than a week to get a response for the assessment test which may have been a requirement for the FT positions after HR person called to schedule a telephone interview.
