City National Bank – Why Work For Us?


THE CITY NATIONAL DIFFERENCE 
Our people are our greatest assets


"What makes City National such a great place to work?"

Ask a room of City National colleagues and two words you'll hear are CULTURE and P.R.I.D.E. (The company values of People, Relationships, Integrity, Dedication and Entrepreneurs)

And it's not just fluff.

City National stands strong as a stable and profitable business, and stands strong in our legacy. Walking the talk every day. Since our beginnings in 1954, we only have had three CEOs and that continuity of culture shows in the roots of respect, integrity and service that are ingrained in the bank. People genuinely enjoy working together to deliver the highest quality of service to our clients--both external and internal.

We care and it shows. We care about:


Community Involvement

Reinvesting in our communities through volunteerism and civic engagement is the way City National does business.

A Diversified Workforce

We welcome a variety of viewpoints, backgrounds and cultural experiences among our colleagues. This variety and diversity enriches our work environment and expands our capacity to serve our clients and communities.

Growth and Development

At City National, we hire confident decision makers who are adaptable and resourceful--and who value people and relationships above all else. Taking initiative is expected and rewarded at the bank, and opportunities for career mobility and advancement are abundant.

    I have been working at City National Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work; entrepreneurship and creativity valued; good working relationships and camaraderie with your peers; profit sharing

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities or empty offices in the C-Suite or at the very top of the organization

    Advice to Management

    Maybe a sub-tier for those who might not ever make Executive Committee but are still incredibly valuable employees? Sr. Leadership Group not really enough

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City National Bank (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Applied to an application on my schools web page, was hit back with an email. Did a conference phone interview, and then came in for an in-person interview. 3 groups of people interviewed me when I came in. Not too many technical questions. maybe some basic accounting. they are looking at your personality more when they bring you in I thought.
