    Interview

    Recruiter called and the phone screening was done. Told me I was overqualified for the position. Asked me a bunch of questions over the phone.
    Phone screening is a waste of time, would have preferred to have face to face.

    Collections Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reading, PA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Santander (Reading, PA (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Prior to in-person interview I had a phone interview with a recruiter. Basic questions. She was very pilot. Within the next week I interviewed in-person with 2 managers. The interview was fairly simple. Situational based questions. Interviewers were really concerned with my confidence in being a collections agent and will I be able to handle out-bound calling and requesting payment. Although they were kind, I felt as though they weren’t interested because I had no prior collections experience. A week later I was offered the position.

    Director - Vendor Risk Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Santander.

    Interview

    Typical call by a recruiter to go over some logistics (she did as for my current salary which is unlawful in MA). I met with 5 folks, from Head(didnt understand what this title is) to Directors for Senior Managers. Santander bank is now a mini Citizens Bank as whole of the team is from Citizens. Also, their another Head of VRM group recently left and joined BBH. Coming back to interview, some folks were smart but seems they are more focused on completing vendor reviews because FFIEC handbook says so. I got a sense that they did a "lift and shift" from citizens bank and apart form a few , rest are just focused on filling templates. Anyway, I felt that they didnt understand basics of so called "risk based" approach that they kept using. Anyway, I just noticed that they hired somebody who was ex Santander but have no credentials for this role --

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Santander (Pennington, NJ (US)) in October 2017.

    Started with a phone interview; moved on quickly to a preliminary interview with the regional manager, and moved on with the branch manager.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Santander (Boston, MA (US)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the position and then got a phone interview from a recruiter. Second step was an interview over the phone with the hiring manager. Third step was an on-site interview with 5 people, ~30 min each.
    In general, it was an easy going interview, mainly get to know each other (me as a candidate and the position).
    Then it all ended. There was no further communication, neither from the recruiter (who by the way had promised to let me know regardless of the outcome), nor from the hiring manager. It is clear what the outcome was but I find this very unprofessional. You don't spend 3 interview sessions just so they don't even let you know the result.

    Investment Advisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Santander.

    Interview

    I applied online. This was for the private bank in Miami. Got a call from the recruiter about a week later. The recruiter had very limited understanding of what the role was about. I gave the recruiter several available times to speak to the hiring manager. She never confirmed the interview. I tried calling and sending emails but there was no response. The hiring manager called me one random day asking if there had been a problem since I had not called him. The hiring manager was gracious and we both agreed that I was not the ideal fit for the role. He, however, expressed interest in me applying for a different role. He told me to work it out with the recruiter but I was never able to her a hold of her again. One of theost unprofessional experiences I've had while interviewing for a job.
