    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at East West Bank (Pasadena, CA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I received LinkedIn message from a recruiter asking if I'm open to new opportunities, we scheduled a phone interview, she introduced me about the company, asked my current responsibilities, and introduced me about the role and what they are looking for. A week later I got another call from another recruiter and she set up an in person interview. On the interview day, I met with the two recruiters, the Head of Talent Acquisition, and the Head of HR. After the interview, I was asked to take an online assessment and provided contact information for professional reference check.

    Internal Audit Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at East West Bank (Pasadena, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for the job online and was contacted by the HR Rep about a different position. It was not in my area of expertise but since she seemed like I'd be a good fit for the job, I submitted to the interview. It turned out that it was a waste of time as the hiring manager for the new position was looking for someone with a different skills set. The rest of the interview consisted of awkward small talk.

    BSA Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pasadena, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at East West Bank (Pasadena, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Preliminary interview over the phone with recruiter and in person interview was ok. However, the follow up process after that to find out if you are still in the process was horrible. I had to reach out the recruiter for a follow up, finding out the pay range was not aligned with what we had discussed in our conversation. They look for experienced associates but at the end they are not willing to pay.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at East West Bank (Pasadena, CA).

    Interviewed with a few marketing managers and the VP. The VP took over most of the interview and was extremely rude throughout the process (cut me off while I was speaking multiple times, curtly told me I was not prepared, demeaned my professional work on on my resume). Other managers were quite nice and pleasant to chat with. The entire interview took about 20 minutes.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Phone call first. The developer there asks uncommon questions. Those are not typical questions found on internet. Even if they are looking for full stack .NET Developer, questions were focus on front end.
