    Current Employee - Teller in Birmingham, AL

    Pros

    Senior management is very knowledgeable. Great benefits package. Direct management is usually fair when asking for time off.

    Cons

    Although the pay is comparable to other financial institutions, retail employees should be paid more than what they are. "You are the face of the company." I've heard this 100 times yet still make far less than one can at another company at a desk or clerical position.
    The environment at every branch is different. Some I loved and some I absolutely hated. It is very hard to enjoy going to work and not enjoy the folks you work with. Most branches are very
    "clique-y"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more knowledgeable of operations on the teller and csr side. They rely on you for answers.

    Current Employee - Teller

    Pros

    The other Tellers I work with are very close, we are almost like family.However, Management and operations are always in a constant struggle to see eye to eye.
    The weekly working hours are good, But being asked to take off a day during the week so we dont get paid for overtime when we have to work Saturdays seems irrational.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, People seem to come out of nowhere and get hired here.
    While other long-time employees who work their tails off get no promotion or recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and train the employees you have now, There are lots of well qualifies people within the organization who never get a chance to show their skills because of hiring from outside the organization.

    Room for promtions in the birmingham area is limited. Since the company is based out of Tupelo, MS.
