I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at West Coast Bancorp in November 2010.
Interview Details – Your typical interview with no surprises, strengths, weaknesses etc. The interview was with the hiring branch manager and the district manager, the DM was a talker and it took much longer than it should have to complete. You shouldnt expect any surprises during an interview with WCB, they have a premade list of questions that managers can choose from and those questions must be asked to each candidate.
