Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – December 14, 2015
After over 19 years in banking and having the bank I worked for become acquired by another bank made for a hard transition. I was laid off after 19 years. My job was hard but rewarding and so were the benefits. I was ready for a change and am excited to finally work for a company that values me and my work.
BSA Consultant (Former Employee) – Fullerton, CA – November 25, 2015
Enjoyed the work and the staff. However, it was a 50 mile drive--one way for me. The mileage was taking its toll on my car and an hour or more to get there and home. The work was interesting and the system easy. Co workers on the project were all congenial. Regular bank staff was helpful. Even though the contract workers on the project were temporary they were included and treated as regular staff. You felt as if you belonged to the company. It was sad to leave after the project was finished.
Opus Bank has no training. It is a fairly new bank and it is still in its infancy stages. There is really no clear direction as to how to do your job. They will tell you what is required but their tools and resources are very limited.
A good place to learn and get experience in operations
Operations Coordinator (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – October 2, 2014
The company does not have any training programs set up. You learn as you go. Plan on not advancing to a better position here, they will discourage you from advancing. The CFO has declined all raises. He has only allowed annual bonuses. The bonus program here isn't great for all that this department does for the company.
casual fridays are just the only good thing here.
the health plan here is horrible. too much work and so little time.
Senior Financial Services Representative (Current Employee) – La Jolla CA 92037 – June 13, 2014
Morning reports, operations in general. Wire transfers, deposits, holds. Open accounts, submit all docs for account. I have learned a lot with Opus bank, specially the sales part of the job. Co-workers are fine, very small office so not much going on The job is not hard just demanding due to the fact that the bank is so new we spend a lot of time cold calling, sending letters, networking to get Opus Bank name out in the communities. I get to meet a lot of professionals at the networking events.
Senior Client Service Representative (Current Employee) – Redondo Beach, CA – June 2, 2014
good pay for what the job is, upper management is very sloppy, constantly changing policies procedures, no proper training etc.. its an easy job for a part timer. It works while I'm in school but I would never consider it as a full time career.
Client Service Representative (Former Employee) – San Dimas, CA – May 15, 2014
Before I worked for Opus Bank it was California Bank and Trust. Although I can ajust to change well this particular bank was not for me. When we were CB and T we had a nice balance of work/home, meaning there was enough staff to cover anyone who needed time off or called in sick without adding stress to the person requesting off. I was able to handle the extra work load, that was not the problem. The problem was when my child was sick and I could not leave work because of the under staffing and therefore resulted into me having to bring my son to work and rest in our breakroom. I will do whatever it takes to get the job done and do well, but that is unessary. As for the work environment it was like we were family, we took care of eachother. I do miss my fellow team mates but I do not miss working for Opus Bank as a company.
worked with family, great communication, great clients
Client Service Representative (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 2, 2014
I have had a few years of banking experience and was always very knowledgeable when it came to business and finance. But working with this company, I continue to learn and grow everyday not just by my peers at work but also with all the great clients that I get to work with. This is a place where you can either work alone or as a team and they always continue to train and help you go above and beyond. This job has made me go from an interest to Business and marketing to a passion. Its a great company and I have nothing but great things to say about it. If I had only one negative thing to say maybe it would be the horrible traffic driving to downtown every morning. But usually the rest of the day gets better!
closed on saturdays! not too much foot traffic but able to get all work done at a timely manner
In General, positive & productive work environment.
Contractor for Corestaff Services (Current Employee) – Redondo beach, CA – December 22, 2013
Worked with a good team including management. Positive & productive office environment. Unfortunately upper management was not interested in continuing or direct hire of office clerk/scanning positions.
Management (Current Employee) – Irvine – October 22, 2013
I would rather be at the dentist getting my teeth drilled. Management is young and very uneducated and unprofessional. No work life balance. From the top down, unprofessional and everyone there looks for work and wants to quit.
