    Pros

    Every one was friendly and the hours were decent. Pay increase was decent as well . . . . . .

    Cons

    Uniform was expensive , not many full time available opportunities . Technology is lacking compared to other banks

    Advice to Management

    Update training programs and uniforms . Make more goals for employees and stop making sales such a large part of the bank , customers do not like that
