Q&A with hiring managers is good, if they are competent and informed. Background and criminal checks by 3rd party companies have allowed people with "questionable" backgrounds and integrity to slip through the cracks and get hired. Wreaking havoc on good employees, causing many valuable people to walk away!
My interviews were fairly straightforward and were mostly pleasant.

The interview process is behind the times. Very drawn out.

Interview with service manager, behavioral questions such as how did you deal with a difficult customer? and 2nd interview with branch manager, that's it
Answered - Teller (Former Employee) - Rolling Hills Estates, CA
On phone then in person. Easy no stress. Handled like a conversation to ensure you fit the culture more so than ask and answer sessions with people that don't have a clue. Interviewed with VP and offered job on the spot. Actually enjoyed the process.

The interview process was very typical. Fill out application on line. Get a call back and meet with management for further interview.

Standard. First a group interview with a recruiter downtown, who then helps to arrange individual interviews with the branches.
