    IT Security Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Columbia Bank (WA, OR & ID) (Lakewood, WA).

    Interview

    The manager called to schedule an interview. I was waiting for him to call me, so we could have our phone interview. I checked my e-mail and he asked if I was still interested in the job. I replied to the e-mail I was waiting for his phone call. Then the manager e-mails me Skype information to call him for the meeting. I was on Skype for about 15 minutes and the manager never joined the meeting. I can tell this is not a company I would want to work for since they hired an incompetent manager. The good news is I have better jobs that I'm interviewing for.

    Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Columbia Bank (WA, OR & ID) (Tacoma, WA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I could tell from the moment I meet the in-person interviewer I wasn't going to get the job. I'm not sure if it was because they actually had already made up their mind with a pervious candidate, or if the interviewer was having a bad day, or if my darker skin color played a role (I saw no people of color anywhere in their corporate offices). I would bet they have a quota on the number of interviews they have to give for each position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Columbia Bank (WA, OR & ID) (Portland, OR) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I had applied for the position back in January, but was not contacted until March. The recruiter, John, asked if I was still interested in the job, which I was, so we scheduled an interview at a nearby branch. John was very pleasant and easy to talk to. He immediately put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. After conversing for a bit he moved on to the more formal interview part of the process. Throughout the interview John was very patient with all of my questions and took the time to answer them completely.
