Interview Question

Assistant National Bank Examiner Interview

-

Office of the Comptroller of the Currency

Some questions I have gathered from previous reviews: Tell us of a time you worked with a difficult person.   Describe an ethical hurdle you overcame   Tell me about a time you had to deal with change at a job or school and how did you overcome the challenge?   Described a difficult situation that you were in, and how did you resolve it ?

Not specifically. Each of the hypotheticals were situations you would face as an examiner and you just have to walk them through what you’d do. The Eastern district may be completely different, though

Northeastern region here. Haven't gotten a phone call yet. I'm really feeling down at this point. I have been dreaming about this opportunity for so long. I don't have a plan B. This was plan A all along.

From a previous cycle, application status does not matter. It could be different now , but previously my application turned to referred and I was not given an offer.

No offer here, also pretty down. But, life goes on. We still got far in the process which is encouraging. I just wish we didn’t have to wait a full year before there is another opportunity to apply. Wish there was a spring one

Does anyone know whether writing response is recorded automatically when time runs out? I did not get a chance to press the record answer button for the writing section.

I, too, was under the impression we had to press record. If anyone finds out when we should expect to get the exam results, please post it.

I'm one of those that accepted an offer and have not received additional info. Maybe one of you guys should email ANBE Recruiting and ask? But typically, something comes out the following week after the offer is extended.

I just got the Employment Offer email from the recruiter. It just confirmed salaries and locations (plural if you're being relocated for training). Then it says I'll receive another email "in the next few weeks" from HR regarding other pre-employment stuff like the Travel Card and the 2nd background investigation.

It was a phone call, I didn’t get any emails from the OCC yet. Also this was the week we were expecting offers and it’s pretty early in the day so I wouldn’t give up hope. It’s likely I was just closer to the top of the list of names they plan to call.

When did you go to CED?

I went to CED in NY. During their presentation, they said offers would roll out the week of November 25th and during the interview, they said they would wrap up by December 9th. So offers will be given out Nov. 25th to Dec, 9th. Everyone should post their district and when they get their offer as they're rolled out. I believe anyone that is not offered a position is sent an email. Let us know -T

Yeah, I reread my email. It is not central region specific, so I assume all regions are in delay. Hopefully that means they are hiring a lot and good news for all of us.

I just received an email that there was an update to my application on usajobs.... it has changed from referred to testing to reviewed saying I meet minimum qualification requirements. Does this mean I passed the test?

I think that's what it means. However, it looks like they will only extend interviews to the highest scorers.

I called the number on the website and the person said that only people who didnt pass the test received an email. So if you didnt get an email last week expect an email in a week or so stating if you qualified for an interview or not.

I think it depends which specific office you applied for. Some offices already gave offers/rejections. Some (probably the offices with A LOT of positions available) are still working on offers. I know the office I applied to has MANY offers to give out.
