    I have been working at Bank of the West full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A great place to work. Competitive salary, willing and able managers and co-workers all working for the customer and their satisfaction. Company really promotes from within.

    Cons

    Working at the contact center, the hours could be better, its hard to move up the chain of command to get better hours because people have been here for so long.
