    Teller On-Call Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zions Bancorporation in January 2015.

    Interview

    Standard interview behavioral and situational questions. 2:1 interview; bank manager and customer service manager. They are especially interested in prior sales experience so emphasize this and prepare to explain some scenarios. Being a retail bank, their second most important set of questions revolves around customer service. Have a strong scenario ready where you solved a conflict.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you tell me a time when you resolved a conflict with a customer. What was the situation and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. If I had prior banking experience I might have been able to negotiate a higher starting point but I was happy with the starting pay.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zions Bancorporation in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Two hour phone interview (1 hour with hiring manager, 1 hour with team). The interview with the manager was great. I could tell she had experience with interviewing. The interview with the team was unstructured and their questions were forced. I even had one person say, "Uh, let's see. What could I ask? Oh, are there any gaps in your resume?"

    Implementation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zions Bancorporation (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2014.

    Interview

    They go off the STAR interview questions. So be ready to give situations of leadership, teamwork, and workload stories. They always interview in panels of about 4-6 supervisors or managers. They also rely on employee referrals, so if you know someone who works there that will help. Be careful when they are explaining what the duties of the job will be sometimes they leave out something major and then tell you later on. They are good with school schedules, only if you can get the work done. Meaning if you have to work 12 hours in a day and then homework, they expect you to put work first over it all.

    Interview Questions

    • When was a time you had a big project that you knew you couldn't get done in time? What did you do to present your concerns to your supervisor? How did it end?   Answer Question

    Financial Analyst II Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zions Bancorporation (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Brief and relaxed but still a formal interview. One formal phone interview, another in person but less formal interview with a panel, and a final less formal meeting with a more senior manager. The panel interview questions in the phone interview were lead in part by the thoughts and goals of the panel which consisted of potential peers. My particular interviews were not typical of Zions Bancorp but more of an outlier and reflected the nature of the position I was being interviewed for as being part of group that sets out to accomplish the same goal but by individuals with unique and varied abilities.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions about SAS, SQL experience. Questions about resume; educational experience, work experience, accomplishments.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zions Bancorporation (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied thru their Career website. HR contacted me for a round 1 phone interview with the team members I would be working with. Interview was good with equal emphasis on questions about my technical expertise and them explaining to me what the job is all about. Got a call within 2 days for a round 2 on site interview with the team and the manager. Got an offer after 5 days.

    I thought the overall interview process was straight forward and easy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Zions Bancorporation (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Met with the individual who had overseen this process in their International Center (SLC) office. Somewhat relaxed and generally informal. It seemed like they wanted to speak with at least 12 individuals before making a decision. I have a very positive feeling at the conclusion of the interview and it actually seemed presumed (on both my part and the interviewer) that there would be a second interview. I was very surprised when not only did I not receive a 2nd interview (really not that big of a deal), but didn't even so much as receive a 'thanks but no thanks' email following the process.

    Interview Questions

    • The individual seemed most interested in my experience with the internal documentation they had been using.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zions Bancorporation (West Valley City, UT) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with all three team leaders and the department manager. A lot of the same questions were repeated by all four interviewers which was annoying. The process also took a long time, and they didn't notify me right away when they had made their decision. I had to reach out myself.
