    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cathay General Bancorp (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online through Cathay Bank Careers. After few days, HR called me, and scheduled an interview. I took a test there, and a 15 minutes interview with HR. The next day, they called again, and set an interview with the branch. The people interviewed me including the branch mananger and VP, they asked some general questions, not hard. However, they did not mention about salary. So I asked them what's the salary? They asked me what you expect, then they give me a lower offer. According to them, the salary for teller is fixed. It is kind of hard to get bonus. That's the main reason I declined the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cathay General Bancorp (El Monte, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Initial phone screening, in-person interview with HR and a rudimentary 1990s version Word and Excel skills test, an essay about why you are applying for the position, then interview with the team. While the interview wasn't very hard, I didn't hear from them afterwards until a few months later, even though I had contacted them well beforehand for an update on the process. HR was very slow and unreliable in this process

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cathay General Bancorp in July 2013.

    Interview

    the interview process was fairly easy. You first get a basic math test to see if you can do mental math fast enough at the HR office. They will ask you some generic interview questions such as strengths and weaknesses. At the time of my hiring, they ask me to go to the branch that I will be working for a second round interview. The regional manager pretty much told me that she knew she was going to hire me without looking at my resume. Basically, as long you looked somewhat presentable, you will get the job

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cathay General Bancorp (Boston, MA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    General behavior questions, not hard..but the waiting interview process is kind of long. Because they are not only interview you. Phone interview was asked general behavior question and what do you know about the bank. The face to face interview also asked you what do you know about the bank. Just do some research then you should be fine.
