I worked at Ridgewood Savings Bank part-time (More than 3 years)
There are so many great things that RSB does for the community overall. They are true to their mission statement and "treat you like family". Very generous and charitable year round. The business hours are great and banking holidays are always a plus! Management is usually very fair with how things are run on a daily basis and from most of my experience very supportive if you have concerns.
Don't count on set scheduling hours. One week as a part timer you may have 3 days another 5. If your part-time you will be treated that way as far as hours are concerned. It's hard to move up in the company, to gain a full time position you usually have to wait until the person who has that position leaves or gets promoted.
Advice to Management
Lower management should mentor part-timers. Teller work can be redundant and mundane. This gained experience could help some one be more efficient at their next position and create a more refreshed working environment.
