    Branch Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newport Beach, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First Banks (Newport Beach, CA) in August 2015.


    Received phone call from hiring manager who was also the Regional Manager. Conducted phone screening and moved on to two in person interviews. Company is a small family owned bank who has grown mainly through acquisitions. Branches are small and slow. The interviewer shared who their primary competitors were but it seemed that they lacked the infrastructure as well as the brand awareness to really capture a much more savvier southern California market. Doesn't mean there isn't business there for them. As long as there is smaller business with credit needs this bank can continue to grow on smaller "family" scale. But not really going raise any eyebrows.
