Advice to Management
Continue to increase pay to match the current/future market, and encourage further incentives for branch personnel to stay longer.
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Columbia Bank (WA, OR & ID) (Portland, OR).
My interview was very nice. They carefully select their potential employees, if you are called for an interview your chances are already high. They explained the benefits of being in the position and really sold me on the job. They explained the great opportunities here as well. Great place to work for.
