      Ryan's Answer

      "Every year, I am tasked with writing our fiscal year end sales report that reports back up to our suppliers. Since first taking this task on four years ago, I have prided myself on my ability to write in a clear, concise and interest inducing manner. I utilize our sales reports and organize the data within the report to show by supplier. I highlight great accomplishments within the report as well. When I'm through with my draft of the copy, I have several others look through the report for errors and take feedback from other graciously."

      Ryan's Answer

      "Just a few months ago, my manager asked me to write a letter to a client that outlined a mistake that had happened with her account over the course of a year. The end outcome was the clients account showing more money than actually existed. To write this letter, I had to work with a couple of other people to determine the facts of how the error occurred, what the impact was and how it would be fixed. Based on that information, I drafted the letter to read in a very apologetic and forthright manner. My manager was very impressed and sent it to the client following a personal phone call to her."

  2. 2.

    Tell me about your favorite manager. What did you enjoy most about working with them?

      CHASE Bank wants to hear what excites you and keeps you motivated in a co-working relationship with your boss. They are interested in your values and want to hear about your experience developing relationships with managers.

      Ryan's Answer

      "I love my current boss because she leads with a collaborative and team-oriented style. We have regular team huddles to provide ongoing communication about process changes or upcoming events."

      Ryan's Answer

      "My favorite manager was my very first manager when I worked at Company X. She was attentive and spent a lot of time mentoring me. I feel that many of my positive work-based skills and qualities are because of how she interacted with and trained me."

  3. 3.

    Talk about a time you had to work with a difficult team member. How did you handle that situation and what was the key for you to make things work with them?

      For this question, your interviewer will be looking to get some insight on your interpersonal skills by seeing how you handle the adverse situation of dealing with a difficult coworker. In your answer, make sure to paint a clear picture of the situation and what made the colleague difficult to work with. Then, really try to reflect on what you did that made it possible to make the best of the situation. Talk about your interpersonal skills that were vital to making this work to give your interviewer the sense that you will be a great team player if hired at CHASE Bank.

      Ryan's Answer

      "Early in my career in the banking industry, I worked with a colleague that was very distracting with her negative talk of other people on our team. It was very unfortunate at first that she was my mentor when I first started and from my very first day on the job, I realized what kind of person she truly was. Being new on the job, I didn't speak up or Rquestion her right away. Rather, I chose to get to know the remainder of my team to truly realize how toxic her talk was. A few months down the road over lunch, she continue with bad talk and negative rumor spreading about a colleague I had grown close to. ight away, I cut her off and told her that I didn't want to hear her talk bad about any of our coworkers. With my upfront approach with her, she definitely caught my drift and hasn't since tried it again."

      Ryan's Answer

      "Currently, I have a teammate that just doesn't like to carry his fair share of the load on the team. In my current environment, we all rely on each other to make the entire operation work. The hard part about this situation is that when he is motivated, he caebest workers on our team. Now, I've gotten to the point where I've gotten to get him well enough where I can see when he is having an off day. Through conversations, some things in his personal life impact his job can impact his job in a negative way. Any time that I notice his work slacking, an in-depth check in conversation with him often helps him get back on task and in a much happier mood on the job."

  4. 4.

    Do you have any experience working with banking teller software?

      While having direct experience in a bank setting working with related software is great in helping minimize training time when you would start on a job, it is not necessarily a requirement for the job. Banking software programs often resemble other accounting type software as well. What your interviewer will be looking to hear in the answer to this question is that you have familiarity in working with a few different types of software programs and have the flexibility to learn and thrive new systems. Talk in details about the types of programs you have mastered in your career and make sure that your interviewer walks away from your interview knowing that you will be able to master their system in short order.

      Ryan's Answer

      "While I don't have direct experience utilizing Teller software, I am confident that I can quickly and efficiently learn your system if hired for this role with CHASE Bank. In my current role, I've mastered two different CRM software systems. In my role, I entered new customer information and maintained the systems with any changes needed over time. As well, I became very proficient at providing up to the minute, customized reporting to leaders that would request it."

      Ryan's Answer

      "Throughout my time with my current financial institution, I have worked proficiently with the Oracle FLEXCUBE program and MX for Banking software. With each program, I was able to learn and master the programs quickly. Right now, I serve as the trainer that works with new tellers for three of our branches. During the training sessions, I spend up to four hours with our new hires to help them learn the systems."

  5. 5.

    If a client here at CHASE Bank were to be denied the financing that they desire, how would you handle that situation?

      As a Loan Officer at CHASE Bank, you will have times where you will have to have the difficult conversation with prospective clients that are being denied financing. For this question, your interviewer will be looking to hear that you take a professional approach with the clients and that you have a firm understanding of the regulations surrounding loans in the industry. To seal the deal for this question, talk about your ability to educate the client to better the chances that they will come back to CHASE Bank for business in the future.

      Ryan's Answer

      "This is a very common occurrence in my current role in the mortgage industry. When a client is denied financing, I am very up front and honest with them in my approach. The most important thing that a customer wants to understand is why financing is denied and my experience in the finance industry lends well to me explaining the importance of credit scores and debt to equity ratios. I have found that customers that are denied financing really take well to my approach and I have had many customers come back after doing the personal work needed to improve and succeed in their application process."

      Ryan's Answer

      "Life as a successful Loan Officer is about being knowledgeable and professional and I pride myself on my ability to project both of those things. In the times I need to personally decline a potential customer, I am firm and fair with them. I don't beat around the bush in any way because this can leave a customer with a false sense of hope. Taking the time to explain the regulations for the loan in layman's terms often helps customers understand things better as well."

  6. 6.

    If a customer posed a problem that you were unable to solve on your own, how would you handle that situation?

      A bank is a serious and professional environment and every once in a while, a customer comes with an issue that is well beyond a Teller's ability to handle. For this question, your interviewer is looking to hear that you will handle these customers with the respect and ease necessary to ensure their satisfaction in service of the institution. Whether you'll be dealing with a customer that received poor service at some point or was dealt a mistake by the organization, your interviewer will be looking to hear that you have the ability to remain calm and treat customers with the respect that they deserve while making all attempts possible to solve their issue. In your answer, talk about your ability to use your communication skills to your advantage and how you use teamwork to solve problems at any level. Any real world example that you have would be good to talk about as well in your answer.

      Ryan's Answer

      "If ever faced with that situation here at CHASE Bank, I would first hear the customer out and then repeat back to them what I heard them say. In using a calm voice, I would be very forthright with them if I was not able to handle their situation and have them take a seat while I found the best person to work with them given their issue. While I would have a lot to learn regarding the duties of each individual on the team here at CHASE Bank, it is something that I would prioritize in my first days on the job so I would be able to troubleshoot issues quickly with customers. At any company, teamwork is of utmost importance and knowing who does what is a key to making the whole operation run smoothly."

      Ryan's Answer

      "In my current job, this is a regular situation that comes up for me as I handle incoming customer calls to our office. While I can handle most calls on my own, sometimes I get customers that call that are very upset with the services provided by our field technicians or the products that we installed. During those calls, I need to take a genuine approach and sympathize with the customer and give our company promise to make it right. By knowing our whole team, I can then put the customer in contact with the appropriate technician or manager. I have access to schedules of our entire team and use that to set timelines for follow up with customers as well. I think these skills will translate nicely to this role here at CHASE Bank if I were to be hired."

  7. 7.

    What data entry skills have you accumulated throughout your career and earlier education?

      As a Teller with CHASE Bank, solid data entry skills will help ensure that you are able to handle customers in a timely manner while also ensuring accuracy with each transaction that you process. While you may not have direct experience with banking specific software and data entry into those programs, your interviewer knows that skills you have built elsewhere can easily transition here to this role with ease. Talk about the experience you have with data entry in any previous positions that you've held. Talk about specific program that you have experience with and remind your interviewer that you are very easily trainable on new systems. If you know your words per minute typing skills, now is a good time to bring that up as well.

      Ryan's Answer

      "From an early age working on computers, I have pretty great word processing skills. The last time I was tested, I could type 75 WPM. These skills have translated nicely to a few different data entry duties I hane taken during my career. In my current role as an Assistant, I handle data entry into Microsoft Excel and also into our enterprise sales system. While being a master of Excel, I picked up our sales software system very easily and don't see any reason why I would have any issues with easily transitioning to your software programs."

      Ryan's Answer

      "In my current role, I work on an online database system called Kintone. I currently do administrative work in the insurance industry and this online system has been a wonderful addition to our team to replace the use of spreadsheets and email to house our information. When I learned the system two years ago, I was very quick to pickup and master the system. With my familiarity with many other software programs, I would be able to transition nicely into the data entry tasks in this role."

  8. 8.

    Accuracy is of utmost importance to the customers here at CHASE Bank. Have you ever had a time where you had a to admit to a mistake on the job surrounding accuracy?

      A person's finances are one of the most important things in their life and a mistake can certainly hit very close to home for them. For this question, your interviewer will be looking to get a solid judgement of your honesty and integrity if you should make a mistake with a customer by having you talk about a time you had to do this in the past. In your answer, be open and honest about the situation while focusing both on what you did to resolve the issue and what lesson you learned moving forward that you can bring to the team at CHASE Bank.

      Ryan's Answer

      "Working in retails sales, my busiest days can be quite hectic with customer lines reaching throughout the store. A few months ago, I had finished ringing up a customers large order and taking her payment. When the next customer approached, she informed me that the pillows she was purchasing were buy two, get one free and I realized that the previous customer hadn't received that deal. I called a colleague over quickly to run the register while I ran out to the parking lot to catch the customer. Luckily I did, and she came back in so I could refund her the price of one of the pillows. She was very thankful! Looking back on that situation, I hadn't noticed the daily deal during our morning huddle and I take full responsibility for that. From that point forward, I always kept a note with me at the register on the daily deals so I wouldn't miss one again."

      Ryan's Answer

      "During high school, I worked for a CPA that was a family friend handling pretty simple data entry tasks. One night, as I was laying in bed, I realized that I had made an error in entering figures into a wrong column in the program that the CPA was using. Not wanting to lose sleep over this, I made myself a note next to my alarm clock and called the CPA the next morning upon waking up. He was very appreciative of my effort to contact him as soon as possible and we made plans for me to fix the error during my scheduled time the following week."

      Anonymous Answer

      "Every so often, as an uber driver, I may accidentally drive past the destination and have to circle back. I always apologize and communicate with the rider so they know I am coming back for them."

      Stephanie's Answer

      This is a great start, but I would suggest adding a few additional details. The fact that you are able to admit it when you make a mistake on the job shows honesty, trustworthiness, and that you're open to feedback.

      "Every so often, in my work as an Uber driver, I may accidentally drive past the destination and have to circle back. I always apologize and communicate with the rider. While I try my best to be careful and detail-oriented at work, mistakes happen occasionally. When they do, you can always count on me, to be honest, and open to feedback."

    If you were on the job here at CHASE Bank and noticed that a change in process or procedure could be beneficial, how would you approach that with your supervisor?

      This question allows your interviewer to gain insight into a few different things about how would you work as part of the team with CHASE Bank. First, they'll be looking to gauge your ability to see possibilities for improvement, so try to think of a time that you did just that in the workplace. They'll also be looking to hear that you are always willing and able to approach your supervisor in a constructive manner. When answering this question, be sure to stress to your interviewer that being complacent won't be on your agenda if hired for this position.

      Ryan's Answer

      "Knowing that a workplace continuously changes when it comes to customers and products, I as an employee need to be fluid in how I work and I am continuously looking to do things more efficiently. In my current role, I approached my manager last year about reconfiguring our customer lobby area to accommodate more customers while also being handicap accessible. He thanked me and took the idea to our leadership team and within weeks new furniture arrived and an unnecessary wall was removed."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I wouldn't hesitate to approach my supervisor with any creative ideas if hired on the team here at CHASE Bank. With any supervisor I've had in the past, I've always appreciated an open door policy as staff on the front lines of the business are able to best see that need for small or large changes. Recently, I approached my supervisor with a great new idea that would help boost customer sales in our retail store. With not having the confines of a chain outlet, he let me lead a team of individuals to implement the change in the store. What we did was choose a high profit item each week and place it on display in front of the cash registers to promote an impulse buy at the register. Through the initial weeks of trialing this, sales numbers for the products each week more than doubled prior weeks when not on display."

      As an experienced loan or finance professional, your interviewer is likely very confident in the skills that you would bring to the team. This question gives them the opportunity to how you will fit into the unique culture with the team at CHASE Bank.

As well, give your interviewer a sense of how you go about learning new processes if hired for this position and don't hesitate to give an example from your past on how you've done this.

      Ryan's Answer

      "Knowing that the main goal of CHASE Bank is to sell more products, I understand my role on the finance side is to provide customers with the best options for them to walk out the door as a lifelong customer. If hired for this role, I will take the time over the first weeks on the job to fully understand your product line, costs and typical financing procedures so I can hit the ground running in no time. In my current role, I communicate very regularly with our sales staff on each customer that we work mutually together with. It really helps provide the best customer experience possible and absolutely helps boost sales."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I would fully expect that a good part of my orientation process into this role at CHASE Bank would entail a full education on the sales part of the business. I would look forward to working closely with and learning from the boots on the ground sales staff as that would give me great insight into the customers that I would be working with. From there, I would be able to build relationships with the sales staff and build a bond moving forward."

Prior to your interview, be sure to consider all of the training and development that you've done over time and talk about a thing or two that really exemplifies your will and desire to get better at your work and, in turn, the success of your organization.

      Ryan's Answer

      "Last year, I participated in a training seminar in my current industry that focused on providing excellent customer service in the digital age and the training really helped focus my mindset moving forward as a manager. I pulled several great marketing and customer service tactics that would be great in many industries, but I also feel that they'd be excellent in the banking industry."

      Ryan's Answer

      "Over the past five years, I've had some great training on employment law, ethics and presentation skills that will all be relevant to this role. But for me personally, the greatest thing that I've done with my family is volunteering at the local food pantry. While it has taught my children many valuable lessons, I have taken a great sense of humility from this time into my work life."

    The banking industry can be stressful. Tell me about a time when you worked in a high-pressure situation.

      While working at CHASE Bank you might find yourself stressed by customers or the fast pace of the work environment. Think of a time where you produced your best work under pressure to showcase how you shine under high-pressure situations.

      Ryan's Answer

      "When I was working as an administrator at a financial firm, I worked in a very high-pressure environment. There was one case that was highly sensitive and required me to pay extra attention to detail. I had limited time to prepare the paperwork, but I was still able to support the lawyer and the client, by staying calm and carefully providing everything they needed. I asked questions to clarify the deadlines that needed to be met and set daily goals to meet them."

      Ryan's Answer

      "Almost every day in my banking career has been filled with high-pressure situations. When I am faced with a stressful situation, I remind myself to slow down, breathe, and assess the situation before jumping in with both feet. Customers seem always to appreciate my calm and methodical approach."

      Ryan's Answer

      "When I was working for my last company, we had a drastic shift in leadership that required the organization to adapt quickly to new ways of doing things. This required me to tap into my ability to lead change management for my work and my team. To make this process smoother, I scheduled frequent updates with my team, peers, and leadership to ensure all deliverables were being met on time and the transition to new processes was being handled with the utmost professionalism not to impact the level of service our clients received. It was a great learning experience for me and the entire organization."

      Ryan's Answer

      "The greatest challenge I have faced in my career was the culture of nepotism in my previous position. It is very challenging to overcome morality based difficulties in the workplace while maintaining a positive attitude and keeping motivated. I overcame these feelings by getting to know my co-workers on a more personal level. Making strong connections with others, who were facing the same difficulties as I was, was very helpful."

      Anonymous Answer

      "Work and life balance. As a full-time student, this was initially difficult for me when I first started school. Life can be hectic between working and attending classes full time. I overcame this challenge by managing my time efficiently so that I can focus on both my career and educational goals. Creating lists, prioritizing tasks, and sticking to a schedule helps."

      Stephanie's Answer

      Since the interviewer has asked specifically about your career (rather than your educational journey,) I would suggest staying focused on your career, and how you have juggled this with also being a full-time student.

      "A major challenge in my career has been juggling competing priorities, especially since I am also a full-time student. Although working full-time and attending classes full-time can be hectic, I have worked to overcome this challenge by managing my time efficiently, so that I can focus on both my career and my educational goals. Creating lists, prioritizing tasks, and sticking to a schedule have helped me to create a healthy work and life balance."
