    Pros

    The best thing about working here were the relationships that I made. Learned many skills that helped beef up my resume. Also, learned how to deal with real life financial situation and how to deal with customers.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits. Very expensive and not enough options were offer for people who pro-health. Because a considerable amount of the folks have medical issues/situations it seems that the people who are healthy have to pay higher premium with the majority just because this is the best the company can do.

    Advice to Management

    Know who your hard workers are and please take good care of them. Know who your lazy workers are and please kick them to the curb. If you think it's better to keep to avoid legal/what ever drama you think will happen. Just do the department a favor and get rid of them. They are sucking the life out of the department.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Westamerica.

    Interview

    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!!
