    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Santander in March 2017.

    Interview

    No structure. Just 5 minutes in a room. Obviously not comfortable with interviewing people. Once I worked for the guy it all made sense. Turns out the guy was an idiot like most people who work there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Santander (Boston, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laid back and casual setting . I went to an open house an met with a couple managers. It was a very fast and simple process . i got an offer the very next day .
    Drug test was not required but they did a full background check, they also require you to complete a long and redundant online assessment.
