Even though we are a large company, we aim for, and pride ourselves on, a small company culture. You will find that our executives are visible in the business and this is a result of the importance we place on open communication. We have an internal intranet all staff have access to, which is the hub of our communication base. There is information on all facets of the company, and a news page, which is updated daily, giving information on everything from our latest charity venture, updates on the economy, to information on new initiatives in the Group. To encourage this open communication, we also have Team Talk videos published on our intranet where our CEO gives updates on the direction of the company.
For customer facing roles such as the Branch Banking network, a corporate uniform is provided, so choosing what to wear to work isn't an issue!

We are dedicated to exceptional health and safety practices across the Group. You may benefit from some of our initiatives, which include free flu vaccines, and access to the Health Central website, where you will find tips and advice on health.
ASB strives to innovate with technology because we recognise that having the best equipment and systems to work on is crucial for employees to achieve their best. Particularly, our Branch Banking systems are among the best in the world. Employees coming from other banks often rave about our great systems.

I worked at ASB Bank full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The culture and focus on people is generally very good, relative to other professional environments I have experienced. Great new head office, work life balance encouragedCons
Learning and development lack in certain areas, and management ineffectual. Pay on the low side, but that comes with the smaller of the big 4 banks in nzRecommendsNeutral Outlook

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at ASB Bank.Interview Details
I first had brief phone interview, asking basic questions, eg, my previous work history etc, phone interview lasted for about 15 minutes, I remember, then they said they will get back in contact with me once they make a decision, then about an hour later I think, the branch manager called me back and offered a proper interview. I felt that the interview went very well, the branch manager(now a regional manager) and two other managers(?) were at the interview, overall, people were very kind and interview wasn't as difficult as I would have thought.Interview Questions
Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
- They wanted to see how I would handle a difficult customer, so asked what was the worst customer experience I had, I was nervous and my mind went blank, but I managed to think of something. Also they asked how well I knew about the company, luckily I had done a thorough job on the company background, was able to give a good answer. Answer Question
ASB opened its doors in 1847 with the pledge to ‘serve the community; to grow; and to help kiwis grow.’ We’ve done that over the years by not standing still; by continuing to rethink the way people bank and how they interact with their money; by not just being another ‘bank’.
We’re also inspired by success. Big or small, every milestone reached by our customers is a success...
