    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Columbia Bank (WA, OR & ID) (Tacoma, WA (US)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I could tell from the moment I meet the in-person interviewer I wasn't going to get the job. I'm not sure if it was because they actually had already made up their mind with a pervious candidate, or if the interviewer was having a bad day, or if my darker skin color played a role (I saw no people of color anywhere in their corporate offices). I would bet they have a quota on the number of interviews they have to give for each position.
