    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Fifth Third.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick. I applied online and received a call later that week from a recruiter, we scheduled a phone interview for the next day and the process began. After the initial phone interview, I was invited to Chicago for a final round of interviewing a couple weeks after the initial contact. Once in Chicago, I interviewed with 6 managers/vps and met with the person in HR I had spoken with throughout. I received an offer the week after, overall the process lasted a month.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Fifth Third (Atlanta, GA (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    the interview process with fifth third was very standard.
    the phone interview however was more detail than other phone interviews I've had. She really went into detail about my experience and background. Interviewing with the branch manager was very standard as well. He asked about whom I was, my background., my values, etc. After the interview I was expecting to hear from the recruiter the following week however she called me the next day to meet with the regional manager. That's awesome for the first interview for this position.

    I applied online – interviewed at Fifth Third.

    Interview

    I found the process quite tedious. Applying online and finally getting a response back about a week later through email from a recruiter. She sent me about 5 interview questions and after emailing my responses I received a call from her the same week. She told me I answered the questions very well and seemed encouraging. She then told me I would receive a call from another recruiter within the next 5 days.

    I did not receive the call until over a week later. But finally this recruiter set me up with a in-person interview with a manager a branch. When I walked in for the interview, the manager had me wait for about 15 minutes and didn't seem enthusiastic about interviewing me.

    Nonetheless, we sat down and he read off interview questions from a paper. And also told me he hadn't reviewed my resume. Yet he was friendly and also seemed encouraging about getting the job. I asked a couple questions to show interest and he complimented one of my questions, saying it was a very good question to ask. At the end he told me he'd be reaching out to me within the next few days. I felt confident I would get the call because I felt I had done a great job and answered all the questions strongly.

    I was never called back. And had given this job opportunity shy of a month of my time.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Fifth Third.

    Interview

    I was only able to get a phone interview with the internal recruiter despite having years of project management experience at a Fortune 500 company in the area. If you are not on the top performer list don't even bother applying for other positions within the company. The bank only takes into consideration what work experience you have within Fifth Third so even if you have tons of work experience from priors jobs it won't matter.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fifth Third (Cincinnati, OH (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The group is located in downtown Cincinnati. I had a couple of friends working in other analytics groups in the company, and they seemed to be pretty happy with the overall culture of the company. The hiring manager and team members also placed a lot of emphasis on the team culture, which I believe is good.

    The interview involved 2 phone interviews and an on-site interview with 4 managers and a peer Quantitative Analyst. The questions are primarily about my personality/characters, and had very little to do with my technical skills. I learned from my last round of interview with a peer quantitative analyst that the group primarily use Excel for their work, which was very disturbing to me. So I think this group would probably not value my skill set as a statistician based on what I learned from this interview. I guess if you're a more business oriented person, this would be a better fit for you.
