    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SunTrust Mortgage.

    Interview

    HR phone interview, followed by a face to face interview with the hiring manager, ending with a phone conversation with HR. I gave this a thumbs down because SunTrust has a terrible policy of a 4% raise regardless of the grade promotion or position being accepted. It can be overridden with the proper pap[erwork being submitted to Jerome; however, very few hiring managers are willing to do this.

    Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Richmond, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SunTrust Mortgage (Richmond, VA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Since this was a contract job, the initial contact was made by a recruiter from a staffing agency. This recruiter set up a phone interview for me with the hiring manager. This led to an in-person interview. The recruiter wanted to know even before I had the in-person interview whether I would take the job if it was offered to me! I told him that it would depend on how the in-person interview went.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked if I had ever used SAS Enterprise Guide (EG), since SunTrust was in the process of switching its programming products from Base SAS to EG.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate this salary. When the recruiter first contacted me about this position, he quoted me one hourly rate. When he called me back to inform me that the hiring manager had made an offer, he quoted me a rate that was $5.00 per hour MORE than the original quote. I should have known then that the hiring manager was desperate to get programmers in the door.
