Financial Services Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in South Lake Tahoe, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bank of the West (South Lake Tahoe, CA).

Interview

Interviewed with the branch manager, who then sent me to the regional manager, who then gave the final ok after a background check was performed. An HR employee called to offer both the job and the starting pay. The interview process depends on what job one is applying for. Tellers are hired by their direct manager, but a higher graded employee has to go to 2 interviews.

    Very enthusiastic managers interviewed me. You could tell they were looking for people that thought outside of the box and where enthusiastic themselves.
