Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at U.S. Bank in December 2014.

Interview

This was really interesting. I was told that this position has been posted since the beginning of 2014. I applied online in August and did not hear anything until October. The human resources recruiter made the initial contact with me via telephone. It was an impromptu phone interview to screen me and see if I met the basic qualifications, so be ready. After that, I did not hear from U.S. Bank until November. That is when the hiring manager reached out to me to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview lasted an hour and was more for her to get to know me. Not really hard questions. Then a few weeks later, the hiring manager reached out to me again, this time to schedule an in-person interview. The in-person interview was with her as well as both her boss and the initial human resources recruiter, both were located remotely and attended the interview via teleconference. This interview was very situational and the hiring manager was following a script already prepared with questions and recording my answers. This interview lasted over an hour and I was told that they would let me know before Christmas. Two weeks later, I found out I received an offer.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Minneapolis, MN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on LinkedIn. The recruiter contacted me within two weeks of my application. We went back and forth on a time to accommodate my schedule as I had to travel one of the days she had interview times available, and my current employer didn't cement the details until the day before I was to travel.The initial interview was to be 15 minutes with a senior recruiter from Human Resources. I probably went 10 minutes into the interview before it ended. Interview questions consisted of the typical screening questions human resources generally asks.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at U.S. Bank.

    Interview

    It was a very casual interview. More behavioral process than anything else. U.S. Bank was very warm and welcoming. I applied for a seattle position. They just asked very basic questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Plymouth, MN).

    Interview

    phone interview -> on-site interview -> writing sample -> on-site interview again

    Both technical questions and behavior questions were involved. Technical questions were asked during the on-site interview mostly and they were really conversation-based. I don't think people were asked the same questions.

    After the first on-site interview, I was asked to provide writing samples and asked some of the questions that were given, which were 6 questions about previous experience and case studies. 4 out of 6 were asked to write. The questions were given on Friday and asked to submitted on Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic behavior question: strength/weakness, biggest challenge, knowledge in regulation(Basel II), professional writing experience, etc.

      Technical question: assumptions for linear/logistic regression and do they important in application, time series analysis, etc.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Eugene, OR) in April 2012.

    Interview

    - Did not receive an initial contact until about 2 months after I applied
    - 2 interviews about a week apart, one with the credit manager and the next with the credit manager and his supervisor (senior division credit manager)
    - First interview was somewhat casual. I was asked about my educational background and experience. No questions other than the boiler plate questions, it seemed like the manager just wanted to know my experiences.
    - Second interview was a little more serious. Senior credit manager asked about how I would approach analyzing a company's financial state and how much I knew about accounting (ie what classes I took and dealing with accounting in my prior work experience).
    - Heard back about one week later about their decision
