WaFd Bank is one of America’s strongest financial institutions, with one of the highest capital ratio among the nation’s largest 100 publicly-traded banks. We’re the largest national bank headquartered in the Pacific Northwest, with over 1,800 employees, 230 branches and $16 billion in assets across 8 states. Our corporate office is located in downtown – more...Seattle just a few blocks from the Pike Place Market. We’re a full-service bank focused on keeping things simple. We operate three primary lines of business: retail banking, business banking and commercial real estate.
We ask our employees to "love what they do - then make a difference". We believe banking should be a noble profession.
Mission: WaFd Bank believes that banking is more than a series of financial transactions. It is a commitment to building relationships both with clients and the community at large.
Each and every banking transaction holds a deeper meaning - whether it's saving toward a future goal, buying a home, or making an investment in a thriving business. We believe a good bank understands this and provides a secure financial foundation that helps our clients accomplish their goals so that all can benefit. – less

I loved working at Wafd Bank. It was a great place to put my foot in the door and start a career I could stay with for a long time. I would recommend anyone to Wafd Bank that wants to get into the banking business.
