    I have been working at Umpqua Bank full-time (more than 5 years)


    While I don't always agree there more things I admire with Mr. Davis and his willingness to challenge the status quo. Make no mistake about his boldness. I am thankful to be working for this organization that cares about its communities, customers and employees.


    Like most businesses, margins are getting smaller and it means making tough business decisions to keep moving forward.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Umpqua Bank.

    Interview Details

    I had 3 interviews, plus Recruitor phone interview. Not overly impressed. Area mgr. seemed more like a teen trying to impress me. We had previous employer in common. I found out he embellished his career abit. I later found out he didn't want to hire me. But the mgr. liked me. I was asked abt selling and cold calling. I would be expected to go out. No problems. I'm a very experienced banker. Was not impressed they had a co- worker interview me also.
