    Bank Teller Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Wachovia in June 2011.

    Interview

    I applied and was immediately contacted by a HR recruiter within the next day. The recruiter set up an interview with me and described it as a group interview. At the interview I was there with about 7 other candidates, where we all met in a huge meeting room at a round table. Here we described our past sales experiences and gave a better background of who we are to the recruiter. Then we filled out some paperwork of where we are interested in working and our hours. The recruiter then collected our papers and stated we will be contacted if a match is made. I was contacted immediately that same day for another interview. My next interview was with two managers. This interview was ok, but from my understanding they were looking for people with a finance background.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wachovia in October 2010.

    Interview

    Interview was wonderful. Interviewer listened to my answers, took notes and responded to my questions.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you describe your management style   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    My recruiter was very experienced in negotiation so it went smoothly. Be prepared to be flexible. Be prepared for a lenghthy background check. Mostly criminal.... Don't let it cause any anxiety, they are just very thorough. In my research, I found that the more counties you have lived in or if you came from another state, it will take a little longer. Also, if you are a married woman, your maiden name search may cause a little delay. But, all in all, if you have no convictions particularly related to any fiduciary concerns you should be okay. It's can a be a bit frustrating if you are anxious to get to work. A word of advice, never stop looking for a new job until you have actually started a job!
