Credit Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Wintrust Financial (Chicago, IL).

Interview

The process was lengthy and strenuous at times, but the actual face-to-face interviews were very casual more of a "get to know you" experience. Overall, it took 3-4 months before I received an official offer and there were four interviews conducted within that time frame; this position is very competitive and there are a lot of applicants to weed through.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wintrust Financial (Chicago, IL) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting and received an invitation for a phone interview a week after. The interviewer was very pleasant and genuinely wanted to know myself and my interest in this industry. For me , the initial questions were going over your resume, then it shifted towards commercial banking, and then the particular position.

    Was interviewed on campus and then offered a face to face interview. The second interview was at the office in Downtown Chicago. The atmosphere was very quiet with cubicles in the middle of the room surrounded by offices for managers.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wintrust Financial (Northbrook, IL).

    Interview

    One phone interview and one face to face. Quick offer, not much salary negotiation. It was one of the less intensive interview processes I have experienced. The questions were basic, but i feel that i am over qualified fro the position. I would rate it a 7 out of ten.

    Interview

    Met representatives on campus. Went to info session. Got an on campus interview. Really nice people, but I think they would like to hire people that are familiar with the local area since they are a community bank.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Wintrust Financial (Chicago, IL) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Had my resume forwarded by an alum, sent it April 6, 2012. Took a month before I received an interview offer. Was invited to their downtown Chicago office. From there, I was taken into a boardroom with several other applicants and was told to fill out a paper application while we waited for our interviews. The paper applications requested general information and for things like education - even high school education. Then on the last page it asked for 3 references. There also several essay questions. Seemed pointless and should have had the candidates fill it out online. The interviews were set up to be in 30 minute intervals, I met with 5 VP's and 1 credit analyst. Interviews were mostly "walk me through your resume" or conversational. Personal relationship building, having some idea about commercial banking and having good questions would be key things to have. A lot of ex-JPM employees work here and they are looking for candidates who will stay long term. The primary location for this position, initially will be in Skokie, IL at their North Shore Bank - with occasional travel to the downtown office. Felt like the interview went pretty well. Did not receive a response till a week later saying they would have their decisions the following week. A week passed and I did not hear back - assuming they just forgot to email my rejection or I am in a secondary candidate pool.

    I have so far only made it to the 1st interview and am waiting to see if I have made it to the second round of interviews. The first round of interviews was extensive, I met with six different people over the course of two hours, switching people every 20 minutes.
