    I worked at California Bank & Trust full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you enjoy a busy schedule, this place definitely would keep you busy, except may be if you're a teller. Like most small banks, the branches rarely have any bank customers. Still there are behind-the-scene activities that do not have direct customer contact. A good place if you want to learn, if you're young and just starting out.

    Cons

    Low pay, almost no chance for a promotion or transfer opportunity, raises that barely keep up with inflation if at all. If you're offered a position, start your negotiation right off the bat. You're not likely to get it later on. They may say to you that the salary is "fair market" and if you're considering their offer, you can still negotiate for PTO, title, stock option, etc. There is still room for flexibility on PTO, title, etc. For every rule they say are in place, there is another set of rule with selective enforcement.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at California Bank & Trust (Irvine, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    First a call from HR. The phone interview by phone from HR was about 1/2 hour. Then you get an interview with department manager. The interview was for about an 1 1/2 hours. Depending on the manager and their personality it can be easy or nerve wrecking.
