Bank Manager Interview Questions

Bank Managers supervise daily banking operations and are responsible for maintaining high productivity levels and great customer service among employees. When hiring Bank Managers or Branch Managers, look for candidates with solid banking and financial backgrounds who can motivate employees to meet goals.

Your ideal candidate should have previous experience leading teams, as this role requires managing Bank Tellers, setting sales targets and evaluating employee performance. Keep an eye out for candidates who demonstrate excellent communication skills handling customer complaints and negotiating with key clients.

During your hiring process, ask generic bank interview questions to find candidates who can oversee banking procedures. Also, include behavioral and situational questions to gauge a candidate’s ability to juggle complex tasks, from managing a team to meeting customer needs and business objectives.
