Client Service Representative in Remote
on June 21, 2022

Working for this bank through a staffing agency was a good overall experience. The biggest problems I experienced stemmed from the online platforms being down so often and the lack of communication from IT and other teams when this happened made it very difficult to help clients at times.

CSR II in Rio Rancho, NM
on November 8, 2022

I have fun working at Wafd. Pay could have been better, other than that, i love working at wafd. Clients are friendly and i get to know them more with my working there for over 5 years. Managers are kind, Division Manager is a very nice lady if she likes you and i really do like her and her personality and sense of humor.

Pay is considerably lower than other banking establishments. Training is inadequate as far as hands on and shadowing with your "peer mentor". Proprietary banking software is antiquated and inefficient - three separate programs needed to open one new account.

Customer Service Representative in Seattle, WA
on August 27, 2022

there is a huge difference between branches. In some busy branches, CSR is responsible for almost all work in the lobby except loan, including wire, ACH, card dispute, opening accounts... soooo busy with WA lowest salary. After I transfer to a not busy branch, the working environment is chill. We don't have many customer so same salary but only few deposit/withdraw per day. The rest of the heavy work is responsible by PB. So it depends.
