    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at U.S. Bank.

    Interview

    I met with three different representatives from their trading teams. They asked a number of different questions and had differing levels of formality. I got the impression that they had been assigned tasks, such as one for character, one for technical skills, and one for business knowledge.

    Interview

    Got an interview through a referral. About a week later I was invited to the SF office where I met with a VP and SVP of investments. VP was the screen, and asked me mostly behavioral questions. SVP focused on more technical investment questions, making sure my skill set fit with the group.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at U.S. Bank.

    Interview

    The first interview was in person, so there was no initial phone interview. A week or two later I had a phone interview as the final interview with the regional director, which was interesting since most other interview experiences the phone and in-person have been flipped. About a month later I heard back with an offer. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and they were very informative and helpful in their communication. There was a short personality quiz which I found pretty odd, and I'm not sure how they use it in the selection process.

    Interview Questions

    • I had to take a skills review exam which took longer than expected but it wasn't too hard.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at U.S. Bank in July 2009.

    Interview

    Everything was top notch with their interview process until they never responded with a final contact. For a company so large, I was surprised their HR didn't do that automatically.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Pittsburgh, PA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    very easy and informal. Basically, if you told them you were interested in the job they would call you a day after the interview and give the position to you. Interview with two people, not stressful at all. Standard 'tell me about your self questions" Felt more like a conversation than an interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Owensboro, KY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    They never read my resume. (offended), They ended up giving me a different position. I needed benefits, so I took it. I think I would still be there if I had declined the position they'd offered. The department was just a mess.

    Negotiation

    The interview was non negotiable. Like I said, I ended up with a job I didn't even apply for and took only for the benefits package. I'm thoroughly disgusted with US Bank.
