    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Alliance Bank (Phoenix, AZ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Meeting with a few managers which is typical. HR is also apart of the process but they have limited say unless you are a teller. Be sure to wear a suit and tie to fit into the culture
