    UHNW Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Denver, CO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    From recruitment, travel itineraries, interview day, and follow up exchanges, the entire experience felt welcoming, informational and yes, the right amount of challenging. Unfortunately I did not get this location, but because of the great experience and feedback I continue to search the company for similar positions as available.

    Anonymous Employee in Bloomington, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Bloomington, MN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online and was not contacted. I contacted then and was immediately called back for an interview with the recruiter two weeks from application date. She then interviewed me and recommended me to my future boss. My boss contacted me and we met face to face for another interview, and then another interview with her assistant. Then they recommended me to the regional manager. And I was interviewed by her two days later over the phone. Now I'm waiting to hear if I'm hired I should know in a few days!

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Minneapolis, MN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, then had another phone interview with the hiring manager. Interview went well -- a few hours later, I was sent a long survey with questions about MS project. The questions were very detailed and most would be very tough to answer if you don't have access to Project (in other words, I had to do this survey while I was at work, on my work computer. If you are currently unemployed, and don't have a copy of MS project on your personal computer, good luck! You can, however, Google the answers of course. Perhaps they still think it's 1995....

    They gave me only 24 hours to complete this. I thought that was pretty unreasonable but I still filled it out.

    I passed their MS project "test" and was invited to an in person interview.

    I met with 6 people and the interview lasted almost 4 hours. It was exhausting.

    I kept getting asked very specific, detailed questions about MS project. The questions were so detailed that it's tough to answer questions like that without sitting in front of a computer. "How do you access this function in project?" "

    What the heck? I felt like I shouldve studied a book on Project before this interview.

    As I was in the interview, I realized that they were looking for a MS Project expert. That, I am not. I use it but I am no expert. I knew this wasn't the role for me. I'm a PM. In my 10 years experience, I've never had a project succeed because of my knowledge (or lack thereof) of a software tool; it succeeded (or failed) because of a human element -- in other words, being a good PM really relies on your soft skills.

    They don't want soft skills in their PMs in TOS (that's the bank's IT Dept). They want hard skills in MS project, Clairty, etc. Those seasoned soft skills you have with negotiating with stakeholders and working with SMEs goes out the window here; but if you can access some obscure function in Project, you're golden.

    After my interview, I felt exhausted. I didn't want to work for this group -- it seemed like a tough group to work for (not to mention that they told me the reason this position is open is becuae the previous person didn't make it past her 90 day review. Yikes.

    After alllll of this hullabaloo, silence. I didn't get even an email saying thanks but no. Nothing! How incredibly unprofessional! I took an entire vacation day from my current job to go through a 4 hour grilling session, plus a long survey and they couldn't even bother to send a rejection email.

    In hindsight, I was talking to an acquaintance and she said that working in Us Bank's TOS (IT) as a project manager is a very very tough environment and many don't last long. Good to know.

    Despite all this, I really feel bad about writing a negative interview review for US Bank as I really respect this company.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Bank in July 2012.

    Interview

    Long process. FIrst, after you put in an application, you have to wait approximately a week until it goes thru HR and then gets funneled to the hiring manager. Most of the time, the hiring manager doesn't get to the req for a few days because they are busy with things that they shouldn't need to do (small business), and then they finally call for an interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Saint Louis, MO) in January 2017.

    The process was very structured and formal. They read from a list of questions they ask every candidate, and explained this is to ensure a consistent and fair interview process for every candidate. They did not ask anything on my resume or cover letter, I had work in points in those documents on my own/unprompted.

    Interview Questions
