    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Umpqua Bank (Vancouver, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was blown away by the professionalism, professionalism, and "out-of-their-way" efforts to make me feel welcome and at ease during the interview process, which was more like a conversation. From my initial contact to the offer process, I was communicated with on my status.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Umpqua Bank.

    Interview

    The interview was rather basic in nature. Simply an overview of my credentials and relevant work experience. The interview I received was "last minute", so the manager and her assistant who performed the interview didn't have any difficult questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Umpqua Bank (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    Horrible. The interview questions are read from, what looks like, examples of what to ask during an interview. They are not well thought of, they have nothing to do with your past work experience, and are not original. Do they even look at our resumes?

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Universal Associate III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Umpqua Bank.

    Interview

    Applied online with Umpqua to several locations in Northern California.
    Started getting calls back, spoke to the branch manager and set up an interview. However upon on the start of the interview the manager informed me the position had been changed from full time to part time, but stated that was a part time position, however that wasn't mentioned in the inital call to set up the interview. I declined. Got a call for a 2nd and thrid interview, for a different store, same story once i got into the interview the manager mentioned that while they advertised for a UA3 they were actually looking for a UA 1 or 2.

    To say the least time the 4th store called me I was throughly fed up with the constant changing of positions, and I told them that I was highly disappointed in the professionalism of the company and declined any further.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Umpqua Bank (Tillamook, OR) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was called for my first interview a couple weeks after I submitted my application and resume. They were excellent about telling me what they were looking for as an addition to their work environment and employee and I felt like the questions were directed towards getting to know me and my ideals of service. My second interview was similar from another team member. If I would not have been offered a job I would still have thought this a great interview. No one person overpowered the conversation.
