    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at U.S. Bank in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and waited for a week, no one called me. And then I went to the branch, talked to the branch manager, and gave her my resume and cover letter. She schduled me an interview the day after i meet her. Most questions were behavieral questions, and a role play game, she asked me either sale a bank product or things I sold in my last job. I choosed to sell her a credit card. After the interview, she told me to take a interview with another branch manager tomorrow. The second interview went pretty smooth. The branch manager did not ask any behaviral questions, but only things like can I take the training, how long can I work for us bank, when can I started to work. 5 days after the 2nd interview, I received a call, told me to go for the final interview with the district manager. The final interview asked some behaviral questions, and asked if I have some special needs for the training. A week after the final interview, the branch manager called me said they would like to give me an offer.

    Interview Details

    Two Face-to-face interviews and one over-the-phone interview. The process was fairly easy and straight forward. It was fairly competitive but not very difficult. It is a sales job so make sure that you sell yourself, dress for the part, and smile. More then anything they want to see a desire to succeed, great customer service (as a personality trait), and an ability to clearly explain concepts and ideas.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at U.S. Bank in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a phone call from the branch manager within a week of application. Branch manager went over the basics of the positions, the sales environment, and duties of the in-store banker. The in-store banker has three roles: teller, personal banker, loan officer. I agreed to a group interview to take place a week later.

    The group interview consisted of nine applicants total meeting with one interview facilitator and three branch managers taking notes in the back. The facilitator is only there to conduct the interview, ultimately it was the branch managers who you needed to impress. We started by pairing off for introductions and sharing what we knew about in-store banking and US Bank as a company.

    After introducing ourselves, we had a group role play scenario if we were stranded on an island after having only be able to salvage 15 items from our boat. The group had to sort these 15 items (on laminated cards) into priority order. Items included things like rations, fresh water, map, fuel, plastic sheet, netting, etc. This activity seemed to bring out several qualities such as how do you work in a group, are you engaged with your peers, do you lead or follow, what kind of things do you prioritize? The group then presented the final list as a team.

    Interview portion consisted of two questions, provide an example of an outstanding customer service and discuss your experience with selling products or services with a sales goal. Each candidate volunteered to respond as we went around the room with the option to not answer if you so desired.

    Following the two question interview, the facilitator picked up a variety of common office supplies and placed them at the front of the room. Each candidate had to choose an office supply and sell the item to the facilitator, taking on the role of a salesperson at a store. Items included paper, pencils, pens, crayons, clips, folders, binders, etc. This exercise showed your ability to sell, overcome objections, deal with difficult customers, close a deal, and sell in-store products/service like a credit card. You had to take ownership, pitch the item you were supposed to sell, but also cross sell other products. Don't forget to sell the company credit card.

    Once we had pitched our office item, we were asked to step outside and were then called back in to meet with the branch managers who had sat in the back of the room quietly the whole time. These questions were more direct towards your experience such as why do you want to leave your current employer, are you aware that this is a sales driven position, what would you do immediately to improve sales, can you work these hours and these days? How much do you expect to be paid?

    At the end of the interview, managers stated that they would be in touch if interested. Received a phone call several days later stating that the position I had applied for had been filled, but wanted to know if I was interested in commuting to a more distant branch. Declined due to drive time, but was told to expect another call from another branch manager closer by. Overall interview was different than usual, but straightforward and honest. Group interview was laid back and allowed you time to craft a good response. Did not feel like a competition against the other candidates, but rather an opportunity to showcase your skill set.

    Interview Questions
    • Talk about a time where you provided outstanding customer service?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about your experience with selling services or products where you had a sales goal or quota to meet?   Answer Question
    • Select an item from the table and sell this item to me as if I were a customer. You will be an employee at Staples and I'm just here to use the restroom.   Answer Question

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at U.S. Bank in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Found the job posting for In-Store Banker on the U.S. Bank website. The online form that you have to fill out for the job is pretty self-explanatory and asks basic questions regarding personal info and work experience. I was contacted the next day by the branch manager at the location I had applied for the job. He conducted a 30-minute impromptu phone interview in which he asked me questions regarding sales and customer service experience. Questions ranged from "tell me about a previous sales job and how you met the goals set forth for you" to "how do you make a customer feel special?". I was very honest in my answers. For example, when he asked me if I had previous experience with loans, particularly home refinance loans, I answered that I did not, but would be more than willing to learn about it in order to excel in the job. Following the phone interview, he schedule a panel interview to take place four days later at the U.S. Bank corporate office in downtown Boise. At the panel interview, I was asked questions by the branch manager that had called me and two other branch managers. The interview consisted of questions regarding the length of time I would be willing to commit to the company and how I felt about standing all day inside and carrying out not only banker duties, but also teller tasks such as making deposits, cashing checks, etc. I was honest with them and told them I did not plan on working for the bank for more than a couple of years, as I anticipate attending graduate school soon. They appreciated my honesty. Following the interview, which lasted 30 minutes, it took 6 days to hear back from the branch manager who had initially interviewed me. He called to tell me I had been chosen for the job and would need to go into the corporate office for fingerprinting. I started work a week after this phone call.
