    Credit Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The PrivateBank (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    First round was on campus - more about getting to know about you and your background, what you know about the bank, and why you are interested in them. Final round was in the office - consisted of a case study, 4 30-minute interviews with a variety of employees involved in the program, and then ends with a lunch. No technicals outside of the case study, which was pretty straight forward - all about getting to know you to make sure you are a good fit.

    Operations Processor II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at The PrivateBank (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Like most progressive companies The PrivateBank has an online application process where after you apply if you are lucky someone from HR will contact you to discuss the role further and if you are interested in pursuing the position further. After that you have an interview. They do interview twice but the second interview is with a different member of management as usual. A couple of weeks later you'll get either a phone call from HR extending an offer or the usual "we really liked you but..." email.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at The PrivateBank (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied online through company website and received phone interview two months after. Then, went to the Chicago location for an in-person interview with one HR employee, one person from the Commercial Banking Training Program, one commercial lender, and had coffee with two analysts. I received an offer two weeks after my interview. It definitely helps if you already know someone in the bank.
