    Branch Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Santander (Meriden, CT (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Had a computerized assessment for position, didn't see person as a whole but just another number. They had irrelevant questions for the position. They were talking about putting things in order which made no sense for this position. This wasn't based on the industry or what the job responsibilities were or would be.

    Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Santander (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    It was the worst interview experience I've ever had. I submitted my resume and HR called me in for a first round interview with the manager. It was an informal interview but it went well, and the manager said that next steps would be for me to come in for a second round. I coordinated with HR and they scheduled me for a second round. It was a 3 hour interview so I took the day off from work. I show up, wait in the reception area. 15 minutes go by and I ask the receptionist for an update. She calls the interviewer, no answer. Another half hour goes by and the manager that interviewed me the first time shows up in the lobby. They escort me into a room, and then they proceed to apologize. The position had been put on hold and they neglected to coordinate that with HR. HR also neglected to coordinate with the interviewers and that they had not accepted the interviews.

    This was a complete waste of my time, but it reaffirmed that this is a terrible place to work if they are unable to effectively coordinate the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic stuff - why are you interested, why do you want to work here.   Answer Question

    Relationship Banker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Santander.

    Interview

    They required an assessment prior to an interview and that shut the door on a possible interview within the next 6 months. I will continue looking elsewhere. Would not recommend.

    Interview Questions

    • The Assessment was asking about your old manager's opinion and not as neutral as is should have been which made me not like the position as much as before taking it.   1 Answer
