I have been working at Washington Federal full-time (Less than a year)
generally a great place to work. good benefit package.
Compensation. I love what I do, and the people I work with. I'm sad to say that the single reason I have considered employment elsewhere is compensation. I have been here nearly 2 years and have received one very small raise. While I am not in an entry level job here, I could easily work an entry level job for more pay elsewhere. I have even considered a second job to supplement my pay. The bonus is nice semi-annually, but doesn't pay my rent month to month. I'm a young person trying to get ahead in life and WaFed's pay structure in relation to skill level is not promoting that in the least.
Advice to Management
Please, if you want to keep employees who truly care about Washington Federal, and love what they do here, pay us. I would love nothing more than to retire from WaFed decades from now. My skills, commitment to this company, and passion for what I do are not being recognized in the way of compensation.
I applied through other source. I interviewed at Washington Federal.
They sit you down and ask you questions according to the job. The managers also want to get to know you, so do not be afraid to speak. When I was interviewed, it was more of a formal introduction; since I had transferred from a former WaFd, which also was a former BOA.
