I have been working at Washington Federal full-time (more than an year)Pros
As a new department at this bank, it can be stressful for everyone.
The training was short, but if you had the skills to adapt to this position, it wasn't as hard to learn/get familiar with. I was hired on prior to one of the Bank of America acquisitions. It was a little nerve wrecking, but everyone you sat next to had the knowledge you needed if there was a question. Also, Supervisors and team leads walked around frequently asking if you were doing okay and/or answered your questions promptly. It was very comforting. There is also multiple resources you may find the information you are looking for without asking a question to someone else. Even when they change the proper information, they notify you in advance.
Washington Federal supports me with complimentary refreshments such as drinks and snacks just incase you forget to bring a lunch or just something to munch on in our break room. There is multiple floors at my work location that you have the ability to maintain privacy when needed. When in doubt, you may always leave the building during breaks and lunch times.
Leadership, Supervisors, and Management strongly believe in and encourage the open door policy to everyone. As a team member, I had the chance to talk with the correct person about other opportunities Washington Federal has to offer while being in my department. It's awesome to know that there is so much room for growth in all of Washington Federal departments that are willing to train you.
I feel very supported and encouraged with my life inside and outside of work. Leadership and supervisors always help everyone with time off or a temporary schedule change to make sure you get your 40 hours of work (most places don't give you that opportunity).
As a C3 Agent and also a new member to Washington Federal, I am very proud and pleased to say that I work with one amazing team, let alone Washington Federal.Cons
C3 department in Everett had too many cliques previously causing bullying. Some previous unprofessional talk during work hours between C3 agents. Everything to this date has improved and is a much better environment.Advice to ManagementAdvice
