    I have been working at Westamerica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    #1 is Work life balance-- I have NEVER missed my kids sports practice or games, school activities or awards, etc. When they say "bank hours", it's true! Very flexible schedules!

    Cons

    The only thing I would recommend is updating the branches with new office furniture and decor to keep up with the present times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the good work!

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Westamerica (Vacaville, CA).

    Interview

    4 In person Interviews with various senior managers including interview with the CEO, David Payne.
    5 personal reference checks completed by the employer with positive feedback obtained. Although well qualified for the role, it did seem as if they made extra effort to find problems with my background. I acknowledged that did have some short tenure of employment over the past few years and that seemed to be the primary rational the company used for not feeling comfortable to extend an offer.
