I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at BECU in May 2014.

Interview Details – Three interview's in process. The first was in a group with 5 others and two BECU recruiters leading/interviewing. It was quite casual and somewhat awkward as they asked a question and everyone was expected to answer but in no particular order...basically if you want to answer quick you can. Probably not a good idea to be the last person to answer.

The second interview was a one on one, 20 minute phone screen with one of the same recruiters.

The final interview was a one on one, in person interview with two branch managers. This was quite intense compared to the others and last the full 60 minutes. Advice here is to dig deeper. Shorter answers can get you through rounds 1 and 2 but they'll want to hear a response to a question then talk about what you learned and then what you've done differently with that knowledge etc. Unfortunately I didn't end up getting the job and was told that they have a policy that prevents them from providing any feedback as to why. I did feel a little crappy to go through the whole process and just get a simple "no" after investing all that time and energy.

Interview Question – Tell us about a time when you had a problem with a coworker/ a time when you didn't get along with a coworker? What did you learn from that? What would you do now?   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at BECU in July 2011.

Interview Details – Submitted application online. Within one week I was contacted for a phone interview that took approximately 20 minutes. Was then asked to come in for an interview that week. There were 4 or 5 managers interviewing me. They then gave me a conditional offer pending background check & references. Getting references was the most difficult part as they have to sign into a website and review you.

Interview Question – Tell us about a situation in which you had a difficult customer. What did you do?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation at all.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BECU in December 2011.

Interview Details – If you know someone, you will be given a phone call. If you get a phone call and did not have a referral or friend that works within, be on your A game as you are competing with others who do. You get called and asked about your resume. You may be sent to a group interview soon after where you will be judged on your personality. If your personality does not fit with BECU's you will not get called after. If all goes well, you get called afterward and then meet with several managers for an interview. Then you get called and offered the job and get trained for about 45 days.
