    Pros

    Provides numerous opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    If you are promoted within the company, the pay is on the lower end. Depending on your superior, it can be difficult to advance from your current position.

    Pros

    During my time there I did a great job, meet and exceeded my goals and earned quarterly bonuses. I focused on the customers and keep it moving.

    Cons

    The health care benefits are not good. The work environment was OK sometimes. You have to be able to tolerate foolishness and focus on getting your job done, and staying away from negativity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From observation, upper management and HR should use better judgement. They listen to allot of he say she say instead of maintaining a professional attitude when employees come to them with situations.. There's no confidentiality. Things that was going on with some of the employees that should have been confidential, was not kept confidential by managers and some HR Reps. Speaking of there values it was just written in black and white but they really didn't live those values...

    Pros

    High turnover industry makes it easy to get hired on. Most new employees don't stay very long, so it does not take very long to build up seniority if you plan on staying with the corporation.

    Cons

    Very micromanaged. Branch employees must make daily commitments of sales. If commitments are not aggressive enough, employees are questioned. If aggressive goals are made and not met, the employee is chastised. Contrary to what one other poster listed, only 10 days vacation are given until the year following the 3 year anniversary, then more vacation is earned. Most of the time, employees must send hourly "sales updates" which take about 10 minutes to prepare, recapping the activity from the past hour. On the corporate level, sales numbers for employees are updated about 3 times per month, generally the goal is every Thursday, but any kind of conflict such as month end or quarter end may delay the weekly update by up to a week or two, making it a very ineffective tool to use in a micromanaging environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work life balance is declining, with the no overtime push and inadequate staff to handle all activities causes employees to be required to take multiple short unpaid lunch breaks daily at a moment's notice. Also, branch employees must work 6 day workweeks with only 1 Saturday per month. Saturdays off during vacation requests are at manager's discretion only and you may be "required" to work a Saturday between days off you have or find a replacement.

    I have been working at Regions Financial part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    bankers hours are pretty nice, payout if you meet your sales goal, friendly co-workers (usually), other good incentives to get paid days off and bonuses.

    Cons

    Always short staffed, no float team, managers dont really know how to be on a teller line even though they are trained to do so in case it is needed.

    Pros

    This has great opportunities for advancement, great benefits and great bonuses. Coworkers inside the branch was great to work with.

    Cons

    There is one particular area manager also known as a CSM that talks very bad to the associates that work in the branches that he oversee. He also call the female associates out of there names to other mangers. Human Resource does not keep confidential information confidential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Human Resource employees and Area Managers need to go to training classes.
