Interview

Applied online and specified which branch I wanted to work at. The interview was at another building close to their HQ. Dress business-casual, I opted for slacks and a dress shirt. The interview was relatively easy, they ask all the basic questions that shouldn't be too hard to answer. You need to present yourself as a responsible and professional person. The best thing about this job is the training!! It will be easy if you nail that

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Valley National Bancorp in September 2014.

    Interview

    Filled out the application online and was contacted two weeks later. I then scheduled an interview the following week. I was arrived at the interview 30 minutes early and was seen for the interview immediately. The interview was 5 minutes of resume reviewing and a confirmation of hire. I was then transferred to the hiring manager and was offered a figure, I negotiated and got a higher figure :) (Never settle for less people). Afterwards they make you do a million and one online readings that have to be completed before a certain date. Orientation was scheduled a month later (long wait but they want you to finish the readings, drug testing, and fingerprinting before you go). After orientation concludes you have to call the bank that you are supposed to work in. They tell you when to report to your bank and then they explains what your job entails. You are then subjected to more testing in your bank while you take in what it means to be a teller (normal transactions, customer care, and interacting with your new coworkers). After about week you are then sent to either full time training or part time training, they gave me an option between both and i chose the full time training since it was a more detailed training course and they give you more time to practice before they throw back into the fray. The training was five 8 hour days of videos and practice transactions with training accounts (Of course they're not going to let you handle real money!!). The final day of training has you take a test where if you fail your employment is terminated but if you pass your position is secured. The test is half 60% written and 40% transactions. When you pass (passing rate of 96% by the way) you are then congratulated you are sent back to your branch to be a full fledged bank teller!!!

    The interview took place in the headquarter, Wayne. The lady who interviewed me was very nice and made me feel not so nervous. She was brief and noticed that I have been working every since i was 14 years old and she appraised my hard work. Then she started to ask me questions about my previous jobs and things related to customer service.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Valley National Bancorp in October 2011.

    Interview

    Was contacted via e-mail to set up an interview. About a week later, I went to one of their branches and waited in a room with a few other candidates. People went in one by one and were interviewed by two people. A hiring manager, and of course, the service manager of that particular branch. After being interviewed by the hiring manager, you were interviewed by the service manager, and they consulted with each other about the prospect of hiring you.

    Interview

    Met with Human Resources at headquarters and had a 1:1 interview there. She took notes during my interview and told me should was going to forward my application to the branch manager at the location applied for to see if the branch was interested in interviewing me. I was invited to the branch office for an interview a week later and had a 1:1 interview there. Basically the lady was forwarded questions from human resources at the main office to ask me and she was just reading them off the paper.
