    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Bank in September 2016.

    Interview

    After a 1.5 month i got a call from a recruiter for a phone screen. Everyting went well and then he asked me to do a codility challenge online. Obviously, the codility challenge was really hard but still i was able to complete it. Total of 120 min is given to complete. My main focus was to complete the test and not worry about time complexity. I received an email the next day that they have decided to follow up with other candidates. This is not google or amazon where you need coding challenge etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Bank (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Started off with a phone interview. I applied for the job off the US Bank website and received a call about a week and a half later. Phone interview was with HR -- very professional, he just talked about my skills and my career goals. A week later, the hiring manager contacted me to set up an face to face interview. I was disappointed that they couldn't get me in for a face to face interview for another 3 weeks, due to their schedule.

    1:1 interview consisted of meeting with the hiring manager, then two other developers, and the director of the group. The interview was probably the easiest interview I've ever had -- which translates into, they didn't ask me dumb, cliched questions. The questions they asked me related directly to my skills and the position--I was quite impressed. No "What are your greatest weaknesses" or "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" garbage. Because the interview wasn't riddled with cliches, I was relaxed and the interview went great. HR reps and hiring managers should take a clue from these guys!

    Post-interview follow up went QUICK. Again, I was VERY impressed. I interviewed on a Wednesday and had the offer on Friday.

    Negotiation

    No room to negotiate. But that's fine, they offered me a lot more than what I was making at my previous employer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at U.S. Bank in February 2010.

    Interview

    Applied for a position on the company web site. Was contacted a week later by HR to schedule a face-to-face interview. HR was pleasant and only asked me a few questions such as "Are you still available?" and told me a little bit about the company. To my surprise they wanted an interview in the next few days.

    I was not working at the time so it was not a problem. I actually got lost on the way to the interview and showed up late! This is usually a candidate killer but the hiring manager and his boss were sympathetic when I explained what happened and still made time for the interview.

    The position was highly technical but I was not asked the usual BS questions about frameworks and OOP. They did ask me some simple programmer questions, but the majority of the interview was a personality test. This organization seems to be very careful about the people they hire and I have to say this gave me a really good impression of the bank right away. What I was told later is that they would rather have a great personality on the team than an odd ball even if the developer's skills were top-notch.

    I had a message on my phone with an offer the NEXT day after the 1:1. My start date had to be almost 3 weeks out due to the bank's scheduling but that was fine.
