Member Consultant Interview

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at BECU in April 2011.

Interview Details – Questions were about goals, communication, and service. At first you get a phone interview. Basic questions about how do you deal with customers, what motivates you, and tell us a situation where you had to educate a customer. Once you complete that they call you back a few days later and ask for a in person interview.

Mortgage Loan Specialist Interview

Mortgage Loan Specialist
Kent, WA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BECU in May 2014.

Interview Details – I have interviewed twice and personally preferred the last interview was a panel interview with multiple candidates. I also think this helps management with so many applicants to interview, saving time. I liked the questions on the big screen to view.

Interview Question – Questions were not difficult or unexpected just the stress of an interview makes interviewing difficult. I hope management takes that into consideration.   View Answer

Interview Details – All focus on sales, lots of talk about service but to get hired you have to rub elbows and suck up. They promise advancement to everyone. Be careful who you talk too lots of back stabbers, everyone is trying to climb to the top.

Contact Center Representative Interview

Contact Center Representative
Spokane Valley, WA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BECU in April 2013.

Interview Details – I applied on their website. A week later I got an email lining out a more detailed description of pay rate and start date. This email asked if I wanted to proceed to the next step, which was a panel interview in a group setting. I agreed. I was there with 5 others. The HR gal did a presentation on the CU (power point). Then between the HR rep and a hiring manager, they asked all 6 of us 3 situational/behavior questions. Hint, have several service related stories ready. I was told I made it to the second stage. It was a one on one call with a HR recruiter. That went well and they had me proceed to an interview with two managers and me. I was then told via email that I did great, and they want me to go on with a background check, and register to get an NMLS. I went and got fingerprinted, All was fine. After not hearing back for a few days, I emailed my recruiter to hear that the managers decided to go ahead with someone else. I was wasted a lot of time and money (faxing info, and driving 40 miles to get printed). I was over qualified for this job, but explained my need for something less stressful than management. They were fine with that. I feel like something went south, but they didn't bother give me enough respect to tell me why. FEEDBACK IS KEY, I got none here.

Interview Question – Name a time when you felt you went over and above the call of duty to help a customer. What was the outcome? What did you learn?   Answer Question
