    Personal Banker Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OneWest Bank (Chino Hills, CA).

    Interview

    Heard from them within two weeks and was asked to schedule an in-person interview at the branch. The branch manager greeted me very warmly, but it was the assistant manager who performed the interview. The experience with her alone has put a bad taste in my mouth for this bank. Maybe she found a candidate she liked better before I came in, but she cut me short before I finished any of my answers, and cut the interview short after she gave me the opportunity to ask her just one question (which she answered very generically.) She even had the gall to say "Mmmmm, no." very cattily to one of my answers without bothering to explain why she seemed so offended by it. I have never had a interview with a professional who seemed so catty and dry before. It just felt like the mean popular girl from my high school gave me a job interview.
