    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sovereign Bancorp.

    Interview

    I applied online. They sent me a link to a questionnaire. After that few days later, they sent another link to another questionnaire. Few days later, I was asked to come in for final interview with the Branch Manager.
    Tip: The online questionnaires are the most important. Final interview is just a formality. Take them seriously.
