I worked at American Bankers Association full-time
ABA offers an excellent benefits package that makes up for the lesser salary that they offer most employees compared to other companies.
Depending on who your manager is, it is very difficult to move up. It is based on personal relationships as much as performance.
I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at American Bankers Association (Washington, DC) in January 2017.
I've never had more mixed emotions about an interview, or the desire to work at any one place. I really liked everyone I met with, and the time spent meeting with everyone were enjoyable and enlightening.
There were however, very long periods of time between the different stages of the interview process. Specifically, it took them 4 months to call me back after the initial phone screening to schedule the first in-person interview, a month later I had a second round of interviews, and three weeks before I heard anything about the position itself.
All of that I could forgive, had they not called my current employer to verify that I was in fact currently working there, BEFORE they extended an offer to me. This was something I specifically asked them not to do, as my current employer was not aware I was job hunting. I would of course been ok with it had they planned on offering me the position, but they didn't. It is one thing to verify employment after an offer is extended and accepted, but to do so beforehand, when you are asked not to, is unprofessional and ridiculous.
