    I worked at Bank of the Ozarks part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits for the customers, above average pay for college students, typical holidays off and bankers hours, the usual

    Cons

    Our company was bought out by this company, and my location was shortly shut down afterwards and our jobs were lost. The problem wasn't the displacement from our jobs, but the way in which it was handled (which was very distasteful). There was a very strong lack of communication in the short amount of time that we remained after the buyout which made things very confusing and disheartening. It was more being like the redheaded stepchildren of the company instead of the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind that the smaller people in the company are the worker bees that make the company run. Without them, day-to-day processes would not be possible and the customer service aspect that everyone speaks so highly of would be lost. Before you decide you want to step on the little guys, remember that they're the face of the company and if you weed out the good ones there aren't going to be more left. EVERYONE is human, so don't dehumanize them just because they make a little less.

    I worked at Bank of the Ozarks full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    This branch is not open on Saturdays

    Cons

    The environment is so racist it is unreal. If you are not African-American, you will not last long in this branch.You will be excluded from everything. People stay in their offices rather than help coworkers or customers or even pick up the phone unless they check caller ID first. People are quick to pawn their work off on others so they can gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to find management that will provide a better work environment to all of the staff and actively tries to manage or even work. Try promoting from within. It doesn't motivate your employees when they know they will never go anywhere.

    Pros

    The only pro to working here is keeping up with your expenses a lot more!

    Cons

    Bad management, gossip spreading, rumor starting, snobby backstabbing co-workers! And management is a part of it all! Very "cookie cutter" place of employment! The tellers all talk trash about everyone, makes fun of customers and are out for themselves 110%... management is a part of it all by disclosing confidential information. Very unprofessional and shady. Work environment is much like a high school "group" you're either in....or out. And if you're out of the childish game playing group, they will make every day a living hell for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to quit and get GOOD PROFESSIONAL management to hire all new staff that actually cares about people and each other.
