    I have been working at BECU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing team and benefit. Management is always there to help or cheer you on.They go over everything and they make sure you have support in training.

    Cons

    I think BECU is right on target. They change when it is needed and do what is right for the staff. So I can’t see a bad thing at all.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the way you are. Listening to your staff and willing to make changes when needed.

    Customer Concierge Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tukwila, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at BECU (Tukwila, WA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for BECU with the position of Full-time Concierge at my school job fair. 2 weeks later I received an email from a recruiter at BECU to schedule a phone interview. The interview went great overall and she made sure that I understand all of the benefits working at BECU and listened to my preferences, qualifications and skills. I was then offered an on site interview with one of their hiring manager. The process requires a little bit of work since you have to take a survey for references. They require 5-7 references in which one must be you current boss. I filled out 7 references just to be sure and then I went to the on site interview fully prepared. I was 15 minutes early and was really impressed with the Tukwila office. It was big, well-decorated and everyone was very friendly. My interviewer created a welcoming environment and he really focused on discussing about my strengths and my passion. He asked a lot of behavioral questions, which I think is a good method for them in finding good concierges. We laughed, shared information and I got to learn a lot about BECU. Overall, it was a very nice interview where I don't feel a lot of pressure. My interview was on Friday and on Monday afternoon, I got a call from BECU recruiter said that they are willing to offer me the position and now I am in the process of doing background check and all the paperwork. Can't wait to start my career with BECU!
