Personal Banker (Current Employee) – East Wenatchee, WA – May 15, 2018
It's great to work here, but sometimes the team is not there at the same level, and as my role in can make it stressful because I get more to do, I don't mind it but I don't like to get behind of my own duties.

This company is awful. They allow for a toxic culture and bullying behaviors. This place is like a junior high school full of gossips (sadly this includes management).Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

Banner Bank's culture is one that promotes employee development. If you are ambitious and are always looking for the next step in your career, these leaders will be your champion. They strive for client satisfaction and the core of that is consistency and happy employees. Newly established HR team has brought the bank to a place of paying to market for top talent. Great performance pays off!

If you’re going to work here, be happy making what they offer because you probably won’t get a raise. Insurance is nice, benefits are decent, but it’s not worth the amount of stress this job can produce. No advancement opportunities either. At least not that I’ve seen.
Vice President Commercial Relationship Manager (Former Employee) – Lake Oswego, OR – February 25, 2018
The credit culture at Banner was a challenge for me. There was a disconnect between our assigned credit officer and the executive credit administrator. The administrative support was problematic at best. My colleagues were good bankers and my team leader, Carole Bentley was great. It just wasn't a good fit and with personal life changes and relocation it was time to move on.

While it’s great that most of their positions are full-time jobs, they’ll tell you up front at your interview that there are no opportunities for advancement (or struggle to come up with a way of putting it nicely). They’ll cheat you out of your raises too. For example, if you start on January 2018, you’re not getting your raise until April 2019. Don’t find out the hard way that it’s not worth your time. There are far better places to work for that will start you off at a higher rate of pay. These folks will start you off at the bare minimum.
Senior Underwriter (Former Employee) – Provo, UT – February 20, 2018
Banner strives to create a good work environment in order to attract and keep the best employees. In general, Banner is successful in this effort. There have been a few growing pains, but they have been mainly offset by more opportunities for the employees.
Teller/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Yakima, WA – February 15, 2018
If you applied to work at the Yakima main branch good luck with getting anywhere in the bank. I was hired for part-time but I always worked full time and had to work overtime. I was definitely not paid for working full time. The manager is the worst. She is super nice to you when you start and makes you feel welcome but once you've been there for a few weeks she starts treating you like dirt. The supervisor is really racist and it almost always making multicultural people feel bad by making snarky and unwanted comments. The company doesn't do anything about her though because she brings in clientele. Now the coworkers are really the worst of the worst about this place. The coworkers make you feel at home and make you feel apart of a team until you've been with them for a few weeks. They are really racist and have their own little cliques. They all try so hard to get each other in trouble and try to make each other look bad. It's like they have games of trying to get each other fired, which I've definitely seen happen before. This is a toxic workplace and I do not recommend for anyone trying to grow.
The only enjoyable part of this job is the free coffee in the lobby.
short breaks, no room for advancement, racist supervisors, competitive and racist coworkers, bad enviroment
Teller 2 (Former Employee) – Bellingham, WA – February 6, 2018
I had worked for major banks in the past and was thrilled to work for a smaller community bank. The major difference that I noticed is that the employees were not taken care of as well as I had seen at larger banks. It was a trade off.
