    One headache after another

    I have been working at First Niagara Financial

    Pros

    decent pay for a bank and good benefits

    Cons

    lousy training and managers who do nothing but sit at their desks all day. If help is needed, I have to walk all around to find someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Team leaders should actually get up once in awhile and walk around and see if anybody needs help.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.
