    I have been working at Fifth Third part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    On most given days I enjoyed the work, the customers and my coworkers.

    Cons

    Pay was low and incentive pay wasn't very much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If companies like Costco pay 11.50 an hour to stock shelves then a teller should make at least $12 an hour.

    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management is very supportive of responding to staff needs and making changes when needed. Benefits are comparable with similar employers. The environment is very laid back and employees seem to maintain positive attitudes.

    Cons

    It can be challenging to move into another area of the bank, little opportunity to network within the bank. It's difficult to grow a career here if your department does not have a built-in track. There does not seem to be much of a focus of growing employees within the company, and it feels your best opportunity for growing your career is to explore options at other companies.

    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Loved the job, customers, learned a lot, miss many of my old co workers.

    Cons

    Computer systems are outdated. Too much room for human error. Banks shouldnt have trouble with things like missing deposits these days. Direct managers were great, but communication between upper and lower management was not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make expectations clear to employees. Spend some money upgrading your software.
