    I have been working at Western Alliance Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Western Alliance Bank is one of the country’s top-performing banking companies and with great performance and growth comes more opportunities to its employees. As a full time employee in the Accounting/Finance team, the work environment is positive, collaborative, stimulating, open and honest, developmental, and provides a good work like balance. As any job can present more challenging times during specific projects, Western Alliance Bank often rewards those who go above and beyond. Overall, the Company is comprised of many intelligent and hardworking individuals who enjoy being here every day. I have and will continue to refer friends to the Bank.

    Cons

    Human Resources could focus more on developing employees. Take your career growth into your own hands by talking with your supervisor often.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Western Alliance Bank in June 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by an in-person with HR and management. A drug test via hair samples and a background check. The first offer was a low ball, but I was able to have it increased. Now that I'm here, I realize that I could've asked and would've gotten more money.
