    I have been working at Western Financial Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is good and bad in every company. If you are committed to quality and a hard worker (and I don't mean a workaholic) then you are acknowledged. It can be tough sometimes because you are held accountable, but all that does is make you a better team player because everyone is held to same standard. Every department is different, but from what I see everyday each department has its own culture and dynamic and on the whole it looks like most people enjoy coming to work every day.

    Cons

    As I said it can be tough. Western is always going to be a work in progress because they have so many plans. It would be nice to know what is happening a bit earlier sometimes so that I can wrap my mind around things and ask questions before things are set in stone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but remember that not all employees are clones. Reward those that follow the company values and work hard, not just because you like them.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Financial Group.

    Interview

    Very strange interview and hiring process. It took forever for them to make a decision and get back to me. However, the people that were in charge were very nice, but I hope they are more clear in their expectations of people. In conclusion, I believe they just need to fine tune their hiring process.
