    I worked at Westamerica full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If there is absolutely no other recourse. Otherwise "run Forest run"!!!!!!!!!!

    Cons

    Ceo and senior management have a problem of telling the truth. They love to manipulate their workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revisit what the Golden Rule is about and be honest.

    Application Details

    The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Westamerica.

    Interview Details

    I would never work for this company!! Went through several interviews for a CSM position in the Bay Area. Recruiters are amazing and the district manager is an awesome person, however the regional manager is an older person stuck with a 1950's mentality. Mind you I have over 10 years experience as an accomplished manager she was stuck on the fact that I had changed banks 3 times in a 10 year time frame. The process was 6 months because they couldn't make up their minds. I'm so glad I didn't join them, I just wished I didn't waste all this time!!
