  • "Truly the World's Greatest Bank"

    Pros

    The associates at the bank truly care about their customers and their employees. Employees do receive bonuses for referring customers and closing deals, but it is never expected to push product on customers, especially if it's not something they truly need. The atmosphere is kind, genuine, and courteous, and management is more than willing to work with your life situation and help you become the best person and employee you can be.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is the computer systems, they were often slow and would freeze. However, it was something that was being worked on and helplines were always available and ready to assist.

    Interview

    I participated in the phone interview with Umpqua's HR rep. The interview was completely about myself, and had very little to do with the position. During the interview, it was easy to determine that I was either over qualified for the position, or the interviewer had little understanding about the position that was vacant.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the interview questions were personal. Ex: "Tell me about yourself".... "Walk me through your resume". The most relevant question that I remember is "Why did you apply for this position?". This was probably the easiest interview that I have ever experienced, almost to the point of being a waste of the HR's time, and my own.   Answer Question
