Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at SunTrust (Calhoun, GA) in November 2014.

Interview

The process is long. There could be as many as 4 steps to go through. An outside agency is used for a phone screen. Once this is complete and you passed the initial screen, you will be contacted for the next step which is the one on one interview. Once this is complete, a panel interview will be given. At this point another one on one interview could be given before a finial decision is made. All contact with be handled through the outside firm. The offer will come in. Once accepted a hire date will be given. This process could take 5 weeks depending on how many candidates are in the pool.

    Interview Questions

    • All very cut and dry stuff. My best advice is to be honest and genuine. The places in this company where those values are still worth something are actually still very good places to work,   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There wasn't so much of a negotiation phase as there was an offer to accept or reject. I would be very honest with your compensation expectations, as they tend to not play the "high/low" game without some proof of current compensation. This isn't a place to come in and get a "pay day" initially, but in the right situation, you can earn substantial increases quickly.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SunTrust (Powder Springs, Cobb, GA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Unemployment in Ga is hovering over 10% so needless to say I was very excited to land an interview. I was laid off along with several other employees from another bank who was going through financial reorganization. I applied on SunTrust website and was fortunate to receive an invitation for a phone interview. I was even more excited to land a face to face interview.
    I interviewed with the Br. Manager and the Regional Manager. The interview appears to be going well until the Br. Manager asked the Regional Manager if he had any questions for me. The Regional Manager first question was in a very accusatory tone he asked me “Companies do not lay-off their best employees why were you laid-off”. He followed that question with another unbelievable question he asked “with a strong resume as yours why are you applying for a job like this”. I felt like he has no idea what is going on in the job market. Then he said to me I have seen many candidates with similar background to yours fail at this job because they only take the job to get into the company. He said the company policy sates you must remain in a position for a year before a transfer will be approved. He also said to me that I will hate coming to work every day. He made a few more surprising statements which caught by surprise.
    My advice for other candidate is, if you really want to work for Sun Trust in the NE region be prepared for all types of questions…even questions that appear to discredit you.
