    Talent Management Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Ramon, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Bank of the West (San Ramon, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The process was pleasantly fast from when I first applied for this position. It was a set of interviews including the recruiter, hiring manager and colleagues. Everyone was very professional, welcoming and very knowledgable about their work. The recruiter who is managing the process is particularly a good first point of contact for the bank, and she ensures that candidates are prepared and have enough information about the job and the bank. I am very happy with my experience applying for bank of the west (even before I was offered the position). One theme that I've noticed across the team is that everyone is very respectful and value people and diversity.
