    I have been working at City National Bank full-time (Less than a year)


    Great place to work and grow! Everyone I have encountered has been here ATLEAST 3-25 years. They also continue to stay!!!!! Wonderful, Wonderful environment. Everyone is so kind and welcoming. I have been here for about four months and have been loving the learning experience. This is one of the best bank's to work for in DTLA! Everything is very efficient and modern. They have great perks, and lunch+learns, HR, and assistance if you ever need anything. I recommended it to all my colleagues.

    Pay is also very competitive, more so than other banks!!!!!


    Have to pay for parking
    Parking lot is about 1 block away from building (5-8 minute walk)

    Advice to Management

    Great place!!! Keep up the good culture, and attitude. Everyone is really happy here.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at City National Bank (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in December-2016.


    I applied online and received a call from HR about a week later. I had phone interviews with HR, the hiring manager, and a peer coworker. Then I had face-to-face interviews with the same individuals, as well as the department EVP. The process took about 2 months and I received the job offer.
