    I have been working at Bank of America part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This company has amazing benefits!

    Cons

    You must stay in a position for a year before you can advance to another one. And retail banking side seems very female dominated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coaching is most effective when it comes from a positive stance versus a negative nagging stance of "you didn't do this" and "you better do that". Management should be given incentives for helping tellers attain required metrics. This may improve morale when a poor supervisor is in place.

    I have been working at Bank of America for more than 10 years

    Pros

    all the federal holidays off

    Cons

    always talking about doing whats right for the customer and then turning around and hounding you about how many Credit Cards did you get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the Middle management understand what the top executive mean when we talk about being for the customer. It seams to get lost in translations

    Former Employee - Fraud Analyst in Kennesaw, GA

    I worked at Bank of America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits- low cost per pay period and great options, flexibility with schedule, generous attendance policy, fun monthly department meetings, many treats and activities for holidays and special events throughout the year, promotions available, decent cafeteria, free banking

    Cons

    Not much room for growth in call center- team lead, manager, bounce to a different department-that's it, call centers can be "catty", job can be boring

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember call center employees may have other goals within the bank- reach out to them for career advancement opportunities

    Current Employee - Bank of America Teller in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Bank of America part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great job for moms re-entering the work force or first time job seekers. Excellent benefits and work/balance. My center has some helpful and nice employees. My BCM is great at helping and the atmosphere is always upbeat and lively.

    Cons

    Only 20 hours a week. I can't get more hours at my center but I can at another center. There are only two full time positions available and both are full. It's hard to move from part time to full time unless you move to another center that is hiring internally.

    You must upsell or sell products to 10% of your daily customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that not every customer through the door wants to be bombarded with questions about upgraded their accounts. Yes, referrals help but customers know what they want and don't want. If a customer is asked the same question at every center, they'll eventually get tired and seek another bank.

    Pros

    You get a desk and a company phone

    Cons

    The corporate culture is horrible. There is no support and the fulfillment side takes so long that it ruins the business referrals you worked so hard to develop. Also, the pay is miserable. Go work for a Broker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take up for your employees

    Feeling low-balled when it comes to pay (pursing a masters degree), but what can you expect as a teller position.
