    I have been working at Western Alliance Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    When I worked for Western Alliance, to was a nice place to work. Nice personable people to work with.

    Cons

    It's a bank so there is a lot of red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though it's a bank which causes much bureaucracy, some formalities are just frustrating and unproductive.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Western Alliance Bank.

    Interview Details

    I was hired on with a different bank and it merged with Western Alliance Bank. Hiring at the time was very easy with a simple phone interview with HR just asking a few questions to be able to setup a time for you to interview with the manager. Once the manager interviews you, the HR gets back to you quickly and was hired on. Once hired, they did a background check and credit check.
    Now with Western Alliance I heard the process is different now, so I can't comment on the new hiring and interview practices.
