Whether you are looking for a position as a bank teller or as a manager, there are plenty of positions available working in a bank. Prepare for an interview by collecting information about the employer, creating possible interview questions and answers and choosing a professional outfit. Provide details about your experience that will make you stand out from other candidates.
Look up pertinent information about the employer including the names of executive staff, the number of locations and financial records. Use social media to find out information about the person interviewing you. Since the employer might ask if you are familiar with them, research information about this bank along with reasons why you want to work with this particular employer.
Dress appropriately for the interview by wearing a business suit. Men should wear a tie and polished shoes. Women should wear pantyhose and a minimum amount of jewelry and makeup. Bring multiple copies of your resume and information about your personal references. You should also bring the addresses and your former supervisors' contact information to fill out on the job application. If you are not familiar with the location of the employer, consider traveling to the area ahead of time so that you are not rushing on the day of your interview.
Think about possible questions that the employer will ask you ahead of time. For example, employers want to know about your experience working in a bank, your education and any training received from previous employers. Focus on your skills and relate it to your experience including handling money, dealing with unruly customers and recording transactions. Also, write down potential questions for the employer. Although the employer is doing the interview, you need to ask questions to find out if this company fits your work style. Ask them about the company's culture, the number of current bank tellers and daily tasks required for the position.
