    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TrustCo Bank Corp NY.

    Interview

    The salary isn't much for the responsibility. The questions asked were pretty easy. The ladies were very nice, but seemed very rushed. There was an interview every 30 minutes it seemed. She asked what I would like my salary to be and when I told her she said to be honest, that is a little high for starting out here. I was a little bummed about that because having almost 9 years in banking I feel like I deserve a little more money than what I am currently making.

The call lasted 10-15 min. i felt confit about the call. I was then called to meet with the regional sales manager, a week later, he described the position to me without asking many questions and i was offered a position a week later.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at TrustCo Bank Corp NY in July 2015.

    Interview

    Application and interview process was super fast. Only took 5 days to apply, hear back about interview, interview and get offered the position. Everyone was very friendly and very welcoming. Interview was very quick (10 min) and that made me nervous, but I got offered the position. I made sure to bring a copy of my resume and lucky I did, because my interviewer seemed impressed and pleased that I remembered to do so. Also, I talked about all the opportunities TrustCo offers to employees and that made it look like I did lots of research before applying, and I explained that these were the reasons why I applied. They also DO call your references and ask how you know them. Overall great experience!!

    Interview

    The day of my second interview at the headquarters in Florida there was only this guy around his 50's, it seemed he took the decision of not hiring me since the moment he saw me, I was in a suit, wearing very nice clothes, shaved and excellent hair but I'm not white like my interviewer. Just to confirm my thoughts, he didn't take any notes from anything, not even papers in hand like formal interviewers, he asked a couple questions not related to the job and the interview didn't even last 8 minutes. He explained what the job would be like and then told me they will decide soon and let me go. He also apologized saying that more people was supposed to be there at the interview but that they were out.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you so enthusiastic about this job? Probably he asked that because nobody should be enthusiastic about a job where they pay less than mcdonalds.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TrustCo Bank Corp NY.

    Interview

    I applied online, and a few days later received an email asking to call and schedule an interview. The interview was scheduled for two weeks later. I had to travel to the recruiter's home base store, which was about 30 minutes away.

    When I arrived, I let the associate at the front desk know I had an interview. She was nice, but extremely laid back. When she called the recruiter to let her know I was there, it seemed like she could have been talking to a friend, not her boss.

    The recruiter came out two to three minutes later. She was nice, shook my hand and took me to an office to do the interview.

    I felt almost cheated of a great opportunity to show off who I am because she was so ready to go home! She spoke so quickly that I barely caught a word she was saying. She kept tripping over her words because she was speaking so fast... She kept apologizing for it and said she was just ready to go home. (My interview was around 4pm)

    I was given a break down of the position and the company. She asked if I read the description of the position and if I had any questions. I asked about the traveling aspect of the job.

    She described that it was a “floating position" where you go from branch to branch helping fill shifts and/or training tellers, or filling in for Store Managers if they are out. She said they TRY to keep travel time within 30 minutes of your home base store.

    Applied online, about three days later received an email to call back to schedule an interview. Interview was scheduled for about two weeks later, (the 15th of JAN). Hiring manager was extremely nice. Very informative, spoke a little quick and somewhat in a rush, but seemed very genuine. Was told I would hear back by 10-14 business days. 5 Days later, checked my status online and said yesterday "Credit Check in Progress". No call yet though. Interview was fairly easy. No selling, just some basic questions on your background and work XP, education..etc..
