    Full Stack Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buffalo, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at M&T Bank (Buffalo, NY) in April 2020.

    Interview

    First HR Call, Second technical interview with 6 managers - almost a day. During my first call, we had clear conversation about my current profile and job requirement.

    But they were looking engineers for new start Nota so they need developer with expertise in UI development, back end development and most importantly he MUST be DevOps person - usually this three triangle requirement is hardly feasible in one SUPER man.

    I was not aware that they need more kind of DevOps person. Though I have good interview experience with these 6 managers but they should clear regarding their requirement before spending entire day of interview.

    Any way, thanks for the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at M&T Bank.

    Interview

    I discovered M&T Bank through a college career fair. I submitted a resume and a cover letter, shortly after I was contacted by a recruiter. I interviewed with the recruiter, resembled more of an info session. A few days later I was invited for a phone interview and an in-person interview by HR. They coordinate everything and reimburse you for travel.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at M&T Bank (New York, NY) in March 2020.

    Interview

    For months had been contacted by recruiter from M&T to be an IT Auditor. Finally interviewed with her and it went great. She said she would send my name to the hiring manager and I would hear back soon. Two days later I received an auto generated response turning me down. I emailed the recruiter and never heard back. Not very professional in my opinion.

    Technology Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at M&T Bank (Buffalo, NY) in February 2020.

    Interview

    First had a phone screen with the recruiter. Passed a software coding test. Followed by a phone screen with the hiring manager. Then held an on-site interview.
    Overall, everything was great until the on-site where they seemed disorganized. The room furniture was inappropriate for 2-person interviewers were they sat at 2 different tables. One interviewer was late and his English was hard to understand. Also, while I appreciate their honesty, they weren't very good at making me want to work there. Additionally, I got conflicting information about the role and no clear picture of its key objectives. Lastly, they have a completely open-office layout which for me is a deal breaker.

    Interview Questions

    • Both phone screen interviews involved questions about my previous experience, accomplishments and interests. Part of the on-site interviews involved various competency or STAR type questions.   Answer Question

    Mortgage Processor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at M&T Bank (Ballston Lake, NY) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I arrived to the Interview on time. I was immediately dismayed when both my interviewers ("unnamed", Vice President and "unnamed", Banking Officer/Mortgage Originations) showed up in Jeans and hoodie sweatshirts and I was in a business suit and tie. This is not a startup or a tech company, but a bank. I would expect at LEAST business casual, but this was full blown casual. This made me feel awkward and uneasy. They asked a few questions on my history, but no behavioral type questions. In a way, I am happy I did not get the job. I would not want to come to work on a daily basis to such an unprofessional atmosphere. If you are looking for a job with absolutely no dress code, this is the place for you!
