I worked at First Niagara Financial full-time (more than an year)Pros
Amazing company to for. Provided great opportunities and covered tuition costs through Center for Financial Training. Gives back to local communities as well!Cons
Sometimes the branches get to busy for the number of tellers on the line. Inconsistencies between branches and rules could become stressful.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Have your computer system use photos- so when someone opens an account their picture will come up- tellers don't have to continually ask for IDA and customers don't have to get mad when they are asked eveyday.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at First Niagara Financial in February 2014.Interview Details
I received an email from a person who wanted to do a phone interview. We agreed on a time and had the interview. The HR person did change the interview time the Friday before the interview. Then when the HR person called me, she asked if it was still a good time for the interview.
Some of the interview parts was ask about resume, what I have been doing? Where do I see myself down the road, past salary history). Shockley didn't ask me about what I did know about the FNG which I had my information all ready for that.
At the end HR person said I would hear back from them within the next week. I received an email saying I did not get an in person interview.Interview Questions
