Long process from beginning to end, but worth the wait. The actual interviews (internal) were just three sessions with multiple people. My offer came a little over 2 weeks after the interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at M&T Bank (Buffalo, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The process took about 4+ weeks with an on-campus interview and then traveling to Buffalo, NY for a series of interviews all day. I had about 10 interviews all day with three different departments within the bank. It got to be a bit repetitive and was mostly behavioral based questions. Everyone I met with was very friendly.

    Interview

    I applied through the school job board and got an on campus interview 1 weeks later. That went very well so I got the second round interview at their headquarter in Buffalo 2 weeks later. Everyone there was very nice, they just asked me some basic behavioral questions. The problem was having 4 interview in the row make me really tired. I felt like I was repeating myself since 2 of them asked me the same questions.
