Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Columbia Bank (NJ) (Fair Lawn, NJ)

Interview

Long, about 3 months. They don't give much feedback during the process because they are interviewing for other people. Would have liked to know that I didn't get the position instead of ghosting candidates.

I applied online. I interviewed at Columbia Bank (NJ) in Apr 2017

Interview

Applied and a couple of days later was contacted to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was set up on a specific day and time and the HR person was supposed to call me. We'll I never received a call. A couple of days later I decided to call the bank to see why they never called. Luckily the HR person that was suppose to call me answered the phone. She told me she forgot to set up my appointment in her computer and that HQ offices had an issue or something. She conducted the phone interview on the spot and said she would forward my interview to the hiring manager and that I should hear something in the upcoming week. I never heard anything. I decided to look up the person on LinkedIn and connected with her. I sent her a message reiterating my interest and thanking her. I also asked for an update on the status of my application. Its been 2 weeks and nothing. I'm guessing I wasn't chosen. Its unfortunate because I really thought I was a good fit for this position and program.

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Columbia Bank (NJ) (Paterson, NJ) in Dec 2014

It was completely stupid and anyone should be able to get this job. They usually only hire women and younge people. Also they will waste you time with meaningless questions and pretend to be sweet but they're evil.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Columbia Bank (NJ) (Mount Angel, OR) in Sep 2013

Interview

Communication was great from the start, the district manager came out and took me out to lunch when I happened to be in town, the pre-interview helped outline what the branch needed and the general direction they wanted to head. I was then called in for an in-person interview and asked to write a business plan in just two days. The interview was with the district manager, regional manager and the regional sales and service officer. The interview lasted for three hours and was originally slated for 30min. The answer of a yes or no got back to me within two weeks. Unfortunately it was a no, however I would love to work for this retail group.
