    Client Relationship Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at UMB Financial Corporation (Denver, CO) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the Client Relationship Manager position online and received a system generated email request to complete an online assessment two days later. Four days after completing the assessment I received a phone call from UMB to schedule a phone screening interview with their recruiter, which I agreed to do. Several days later at the scheduled time the recruiter called me, skipped all pleasantries and stated they would go directly to asking questions related to the role. The recruiter was clearly in their car driving with the windows down or sitting outside in a windy area on their cell phone. It was incredibly difficult to understand what they were saying at times because of the level of background noise and interference (I was in a closed conference room, so it wasn't on my end). The questions were generic and dealt with previous job history and responsibilities, plus salary requirements. When the recruiter's questions shifted to whether I had experience with cold calling, I pointed out that the job description did not include any verbiage related to "hunting" or "cold calling" -- two things I personally screen for while searching for a new job. The recruiter had a canned rebuttal that the phrase "outbound" covers this in the description for the role, and cold calling/knocking on doors is a requirement. After letting the recruiter know that I was no longer interested in the position, we amicably ended the call.

    The description outlining the position is ambiguous and misleading. It's cold calling and knocking on doors, not account management or client support like the title and description implies. Further, the interview was conducted in a poor manner. Never expect to have a thoughtful and revealing conversation with a candidate while driving around in your car on your cell phone.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were standard recruiter questions for screening candidates, e.g. Why are you leaving your current position? Why did you apply for this position? What are you salary requirements?   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at UMB Financial Corporation (Saint Louis, MO) in August 2015.

    Interview

    As a result of my networking, I received an email introduction to a member of the wealth management team. This was in May. Unaware of any open position, I was able to meet with him in person. This was in August. The position was not yet posted. He informed me the position would be posted in a few weeks. Shortly after applying on line, I was contacted to schedule a phone interview. It took a few weeks before being contacted for an in-person interview. I met with several people on the same day. First, I met with the market president, then the hiring manager and finally a group of people. After the group interview, I had a conference call scheduled with the regional president.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UMB Financial Corporation.

    Interview

    The first two interviews were very relaxed. The first call was a prescreening interview in which the interviewer went through every line of the resume. The next step is a 1-hour long behavioral interview that was intensely in depth about emotions and feelings of situations. The process was very quick, which is nice. The following interview involves an actual campus tour.

    Interview

    About a month after I applied, I was asked to do a Skype interview with the person who later became my supervisor. Someone at HR called me later that day to offer me a position. The interview was fairly casual and was more a conversation than anything. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.
