    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at M&T Bank (York, PA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online 03/29/2017 and had a phone interview request 04/04/2017. Phone interview was easy, pleasant interviewer, and I was asked for an in person next day. After asking some questions about pay-rate, HR representative contacted the branch manager and confirmed that if offered the job, I would still be able to make a wage I find acceptable. In person went swimmingly. The manager was pleasant and friendly. She didn't make me feel pressured to answer right away, if I needed a minute to mix up an example.

    Relationship Banker I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westfield, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at M&T Bank (Westfield, NJ).

    Interview

    Had 2 interviews. The phone interview with the HR representative went great, super friendly woman. The in person interview with the branch manager didn't go so well. She was unprepared and had nothing good to say about the company. Sounded like she didn't want me to work there. Told me how there was a high turnover with employees and how the sales goals were high. Also asked me if I was okay working every saturday. After meeting with her I was not convinced that this would be the best fit for me.

    IT Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at M&T Bank (Baltimore, MD) in April 2017.

    Interview

    This was the most unprofessional place I have ever interviewed at for a job. They tell you they want to interview you and set up a call. That person said lets move forward and arranged another phone interview and a face to face meeting . The phone interview never happened because he never called. HR says oh sorry we don't know what happened. Went to the face to face interview and sat in the conference room for 15 minutes only to be told it had been cancelled had had to be rescheduled. Red flags all over the place . I can't begin to tell you how rude these people were and in the end pretty gutless.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at M&T Bank (Buffalo, NY).

    Interview

    Long day with 6 interviews. Didn't feel like sending 6 thank you follow ups, didn't get an offer. I think I might have had I thanked them, but I wasn't enthusiastic about the older people I met there. Most of the interviewers were awkward, and a few people seemed unprepared (one guy super unprepared).
