I was offered the job, sent in all my paperwork, but is there anyway to find out the status of what has been approved? I guess no news is good news, as I was told if there is any problems my recruiter would contact me; just curious because I cannot log into the onboarding site.

Pd_on1 in Chicago, Illinois said: They will verify all the info on your resume. They can only verify what you put down, but they want the past 7 years accounted for.

When you applied you also use both your Cover letter and Resume? Or just the Resume.

I know the Assessment is important. But yeah. I'm trying to get in too. Thanks.

Just put your work history on the resume & bring 3 copies of it with you to an interview if contacted.

This is what I did. Go to a local branch and act like you are wanting to open an account. I went to the Teller line to see who I should talk to and then went to the Personal Banker and I got all the forms and info I could get. I went home and studied their accounts and info. I knew I would be asked to role-play, which they did, they asked me to sell them a checking account. She was very impressed because I was able to pull out their brochures and I already know their fees! Just be very outgoing and very sales oriented! no matter what position you are applying for - it is all sales/service! Good Luck!!!

Hazel, if you don't mind me asking, how long until after you sent in your paperwork did you hear back from them on your acceptance?

Pd_on1 in Elmhurst, Illinois said: I have completed 3 interviews, phone, manager, district manager. All said I did great. Last interview was Thursday. Today is the following Tuesday - how long will it take to hear from a recruiter? The District Manager told me I would hear from another recruiter?
Does anyone know how long it normally takes to get an offer?

I have had two interviews with district managers and one with the market manager. All three interviews went great. The recruiter sent me an email and asked for a w-2. I never had a company ask for that before. That was a week ago and I haven't hear anything yet. Not sure if I should reach out or remain patient...don't want to seem too eager. Anyone else had this happen or anyone have any advice? Thanks!!!

hazel in Houston, Texas said: Hey I would definitely recommend that you contact your recruiter. Have you done the fingerprinting, background, etc already. Because in Houston, if you do not receive an email stating that you have successfully completed the pre-employment process, than you can not start on your July 11th start date! It took about 10 days before I received an email saying that I passed everything, so please contact your recruiter ASAP or also call 1877-332-HIRE they can help you with any questions about your hiring process..GOOD LUCK!!!

Hi Hazel I have been offered a teller position at chase. I have an appt on Monday for drug test and pre-employment with a recruiter. Do you know what they ask in that appt I am really nervous I really want this job! Thanks

I applied for Chase last Wednesday as a Bank Teller, I got a phone call on Friday and they asked me some questions and said the Branch Manager would call me in 1-2 business days to set up an interview and he called me 5 mins later. I had an interview 2 hours later with the Branch Manager and I think the lady that does the hiring. I think everything went well, they said they had a lot of canidates and wouldn't know until the middle of this week. Should I be worried or is this a good thing?

I interviewed for Chase at the corporate headquarters in Chicago just over a year ago. This was what they did:

First, there was a phone interview.
Weeks followed with no follow up or word. My efforts to follow up were ignored.
They then set up a series of interviews - 5 in one day. All interviews were entirely positive and they said they'd get back to me in three days.
Weeks followed and they did not get back to me. My efforts to follow up were ignored.
I was finally called back a month later. I was asked to come in for more interviews. I had four interviews in immediate succession. They promised to follow up in two days. They did not call for over 6 weeks.
I was still unemployed, so accepted an invitation for a third round of interviews. Two went very well. I then had a video conference interview with an attorney in New York, who spoke to me only in Chase lingo, as if I would know what the heck she was talking about. She kept quizzing me about whether I knew various terms that she said were standard in banking. I later asked very high level bankers at two competing banks if they were familiar with the terms and learned they were specific to Chase, internal lingo.

No word for another 8 weeks. I stopped trying to follow up because they didn't get back to me anyway. I started a new job. Then I got a letter thanking me for "submitting my resume" and telling me they would not be offering me an interview. This was after interviewing with 11 people in the company.

Two more months passed and the same recruiter who had set up the first 11 interviews and conducted the phone interview called me to ask if I'd like to interview for the same job, as if we had never spoken.

I didn't even bother explaining. What I did do though was to take my accounts and credit cards from Chase and transfer them to BMO Harris. These people at Chase were total morons, and very rude in managing this whole process.

Louisa -

I'm surprised that you didn't say anything to the headhunter.

Large organizations can get to thinking that they are the world, and forget that they are made up of humans AND have to deal with humans. I had a case, years ago, when I interviewed for a position with a major IT services company. They were bidding out for many contracts, and how they treated their employees depended on the nature of the contracts they worked on. So I asked a simple question that the interviewer should have been able to answer - Are your contracts mostly "time and materials" or "fixed price bids"? This interviewer had absolutely no clue what I was talking about, as he only knew his company's internal lingo. (Please note that this unnamed company is part of the Dow Jones index....)

There is a simple rule of thumb that I use in dealing with prospective employers. If they do not respect my time, or keep to their word regarding time commitments, then they are not worth working for AND they are likely interviewing you to justify their own internal needs to speak with a number of potential employees before offering a job to someone already chosen.

Respect works both ways. If I'm going to spend more time on the job than I spend with family, I want to be able to work with people I can respect. If they show me the same respect I'd show others before a position is offered (or not), I know that after a position is offered, similar behaviors will likely occur....

Then you are wasting your time with Chase. My sister worked for Washington Mutual for 15 years and loved her job. When Chase bought them out, she lasted 18 months and had to quit.

In this market, most companies could care less about you. There are 100 more people who can do that job.

I didn't say I'd work for chase. I focused on how big firms lose track of the needs of people, and that I wouldn't work for a firm that didn't treat me with respect in the hiring process. The case noted by Louisa was horrible - and inexcusable.

Years ago, I was interviewed by a firm (which is no longer in business) in NYC. This firm called me in for a 12:00 interview, and kept me waiting for 45 minutes. I told the receptionist that I had another appointment and had to leave. Only then was there any motion to actually conduct the interview. At this point, I had no interest in working for the firm - and I learned a lesson: If a firm doesn't respect your time, it won't respect you in other ways....

I don't think most companies give a crap about how their hiring process is perceived. The technology has kept them at arms distance for so long that they are bulletproof to just how impersonal the whole thing has become.

I had have been on several interviews that were just doozies. And I no longer listen when a hiring manager says, "We'll be in touch". I just send out 5 more resumes.

This is where I'd agree with you. When the human element is removed, everything starts going to hell in a hand basket. I would love to see a simple act of courtesy, that for the people who are interviewed, an email go out to say that a decision has been made, and thanking them for their time. (I have received a couple of these emails.)

Until I have a job offer in hand, I will keep on sending out resumes....

Same here. Even HR people say, "You don't have a job until you have a paycheck. Keep applying".

My sister works for a company that can get 1,000 apps for a single position. After awhile, you just become inured to the body count and courtesy goes out of the window.

I just think that job hunting is just one of the more unpleasant aspects of life; like root canals.

I've had root canal - takes less time, and is less painful.
