    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Citizens Bank (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2018.


    It was great just be yourself and answer the questions as needed. You will have a phone interview and then a face to face interview. They will offer you the job if both managers agree that you are fit for the job. Be prepared for the same questions which are 7-10 on the job questions or what would you do situational questions. It’s very easy if you be yourself and know what they are looking for. Use your words wisely.
