Webster Bank – Why Work For Us?


Our heritage dates back to 1935, when 24-year-old Harold Webster Smith founded the bank with $25,000 borrowed from family and friends. Then known as First Federal Savings and Loan of Waterbury, Connecticut, our purpose was to help make homeownership a realistic dream for people, and our values centered on putting people first.

Over the years, we have expanded to become a leading regional bank in the Northeast with over $25 billion in assets and 176 banking centers from greater New York City to Boston. Today, we offer the full range of financial services, delivered by close to 3,000 employees.

But while we have grown, our core values have remained unchanged. We still put people first -- acting with responsibility, respect, ethical behavior, citizenship and teamwork. We call these principles The Webster Way. They bring us together, set us apart, and create an unshakeable core that is unique to Webster.

By following The Webster Way, we ensure that we’re living up to our customers and each other.

    Associate Universal Banker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Webster Bank (Boston, MA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online through Webster's ADP portal. And received a call from an HR Rep about a week later to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview went great and the Rep had my application, resume, and cover letter forwarded to the branch manager for an in-person interview at a local branch. I had my interview set for Monday at 11 am. At that interview was done with both the Manager and Assistant Manager. I was asked standard interview questions for example "How do you deal with stress?", "Explain how you would deal with a conflict of interest?", And "How would deal with an angry customer?".
