Do you have any tips to help prepare for an upcoming proof operator interview?

Are there common interview questions that come up again and again?

hey shibu,
i worked as a proof operator for first union and bank of bank, both part-time jobs. when i interviewed for first union and bank of america, they had me take a typing test to test my numeric skills. we went thought standard interview questions but they are more concern with you typing skills. as a proof operator, you can make more money in bonuses for keystrokes per hour plus your hourly rate. at times i made more in bonuses than my hourly rate but with both combine together, i made as much as someone who works full-time in a different job. and the people that worked as full-time proof operators made as much at 35K-40K and part-time 20K-30K per year. the down side to it is that you have to stay until all the work is complete. my part-time hours where like, 5pm to 9pm but sometime had to stay until 10pm and holidays the workload was heavy and had some late nights but the money was good. so, my advise to you is to google something like numeric typing test and for a website that you can practice on for free and also review your standard interviewing questions. good luck!!

hey shibu,
here are a few questions that they ask in an interview.

Why should we hire you?

Why do you want to work here?

What are your greatest weaknesses?

Why did you leave your last job?

Describe a problem situation and how you solved it.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

What are your salary expectations?

Tell me about yourself.

I have been asked all these questions in every interview I have been to. I am currently looking for a new career and I always practice the answers to these questions. Also, go to www.careerbuilder.com and click on "Advice & Resources", this will help a lot.

Good luck,
Dana

Shibu,
CONGRADULATIONS!!! I am glad to hear that you got the job. That is a good hourly rate. Are they paying an incentive and shift differential? Continue to increase your keystroke speed with minimal errors and you will do GREAT.

I was called for a proof operator position in Ann Arbor Michigan with TCF Bank. I am excited because out of all the jobs I have done throughout my working career, a proof operator was my favorite. This will be a part-time job for me. It's just to make some extra money. I have a full-time job. Also, I was told I can make between $9 & $10 an hour. I think that is pretty cool for a second job.

Wish me luck!! :)

Wachovia. I was there forever. Needless to say the money was awesome for the little bit of headache the job was. It's just pain staking to have to sit in the same position for hours. But yeah, you can make up to $25 to $30 an hour.

I worked as a proof operator in Maryland at the Bank of America. I have worked for Suntrust bank in the past. I was told that in BOA pays the MOST bonus/monthly incentive in Maryland and I am not sure if that is for all states.

I work part-time and go around to thrift stores and find stuff to sell on Ebay, so I basically use the bank to pay for my medical, dental and vision benefits and 401K. Ebay pay my other bills.

I have a bachelor of arts degree.
