    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wachovia in July 2009.

    Interview

    First spoke on phone with recruiter. She then set up phone interview for a few days later and at the end of the phone interview she told me she would like to take the next step and set up a face to face interview. She called back in a couple of days to set up the face to face for the following week. The face to face was with two interviewers who took turns asking situational questions about past job experiences i.e. " Tell me about a time when you dealt with a particularly difficult customer". Answers to all questions were to be in the S.T.A.R. format; "tell about the SITUATION or TASK, describe the ACTION, tell the RESULT of your actions" The interview lasted about 50-60 minutes. Very proffessional people and overall experience was good. No position was offered, but call from recruiter the following week requested that although the position went to someone else, they wanted to keep my information on file for expected future openings.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wachovia (Paramus, NJ) in January 2008.

    Interview

    First got an e-mail, then phone interview & call-back for appointment for first interview.
    First interview consisted of questionaire being filled out independently under the watch of HR rep, the initial screener. Then got another e-mail from recruiter for second interview a week or so later. Then second interview was with 2 managers, was more rigorous and thorough, focused on their methodology of situation-specific actions taken & the result.

    Negotiation

    Go in with confidence and do not chicken out in asking for your salary.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wachovia in March 2008.

    Interview

    Applied on job website. The first interview was over the phone with the hiring headhunter. Things went well and we arranged an in person interview with the hiring manager for the district. After the interview, watched a video on their company culture, etc, and took a personality and aptitude test. A few days later, interviewed with the sales manager for the area I had applied. Note, there was no need to interview with the financial center manager, as they are more a manager of customer service in the branches.
