    I met a lot of great people, the management is very competent, and they like to promote internally!

    I worked at Washington Trust Bank as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits and holidays are great! They give annual raises, and really keep the employees first.

    Cons

    It's not always the most exciting job, and if you don't make an effort to move ahead in the company you can end up stuck in the same position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting internally! It really helps the team atmosphere

    Priority Service Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Washington Trust Bank in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a call a week and a half later scheduling an initial phone interview. Had phone interview with HR, on speaker phone -- she said so she could take notes but it felt like other people were listening. Was asked standard "tell me about a time when you . . ." questions and then she scheduled me for an in person interview.

    In person interview was with three people, the boss, his number two and the lady in charge of training. They asked a lot of standard "Tell me about a time when you . . ." questions -- as well as challenging me a bit to prove how my degree (English) was possibly relevant in a call center. I did not click with the boss at all during the interview, nor he with me. Something just was off and it was not a good fit. The boss was annoyed when I asked tough questions regarding compensation and difficult aspects of the job and if there were possibilities for advancement with the company. His answers were sketchy (though the other two interviewers had great responses). If you really want a position there, I'd suggest not asking anything but fluff questions back at that point in the interview, they're expecting submission from interviewees. If the compensation were high enough, I probably would have taken a job there, but I felt relieved when he they called a week later and told me I was not selected. I asked for feedback on my interview and he said he had none, that the interview went great. . . I like to improve myself and thrive on constructive criticism and direct communication - So my experience at the interview and the callback reaffirmed that while I really want to find a job, this company's culture was not a right fit for me, nor me for it.
