    I have been working at Fifth Third part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and 401k. They do have incentives in place if you meet/exceed sales goals

    Cons

    -So much of the job is focused on sales, and not on truly building a relationship with customers. I get chastised for not pushing product with each customer, even if I've already spoken to that customer numerous times previously. I've had customers yell at me and threaten to leave the bank because we push products too much.
    -CEI is ridiculous. You only get paid if the banking center as a whole has an A, not based on individual performance. Tellers are told to be intentionally vague about products in order to have customers meet with bankers, yet we are scored on whether or not we are Knowledgable about products, Proactive about offering services, etcetera. The surveys seem rigged to set you up for failure.
    -I asked if I could be compensated for parking and travel when I was asked to work at a different banking center, was bullied by my FCM to not apply for compensation because it would affect our P&L (profits and loss)
    -Consistently understaffed, high turn over
    -As a part time CSR, I found it very difficult to advance to a full time position. Seems like the bank prefers to hire part time workers rather than create full time positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider rephrasing survey questions when determining CEI. I understand the need for feedback (and I honestly do appreciate helpful feedback - I want to improve!) but asking questions that go against what we are trained to do is very aggravating and only leads to a feeling of hopelessness and disillusionment

    Interesting work, nice people to work with.

    Change not to improve performance or efficiency but change to prove someone thinks they are important. Many Silos.

    Eliminate some layers of management and streamline the business.
