    Pros

    Employees can call out whenever they want. Decent benefits.easy to get promoted. This job is a great stepping stone to a better one.

    Cons

    The pay is awful. The hours are insane.The incentive plan is a joke.when you have problems or issues Don't expect any answers because noone ever knows what's going on. There are no clear difference between job titles everybody does the same thing. Everything is based off new checking accounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing trial and error to become profitable. Do research before playing games with peoples lives and money.

    Pros

    fast- paced promotion as long as your sales numbers are good.

    Cons

    Its strictly about numbers. An employee with good sales numbers but horrible customer service is more likely to be promoted than one with great customer service, but still decent sales numbers. The incentives continue to decrease in value but The same if not more work is required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be on one accord, and be more consistent with company policies.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, and that's it.

    Cons

    Low pay, high expectations, terrible training, can't believe people work here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Um, be an actual bank? You have your employees hawking checking accounts in Walmarts. You make your employees lock their cellphones in a desk all day. It's 2014, get a reality check.

    I have been working at Best Bank full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It was 10 minutes from home. The branch is inside a Krogers and the staff at Krogers are great. I could do my shopping after work that was nice. Got the good sales.

    Cons

    The staff was dishonest. The bank encouraged employees to do unethical things to make goals. The regional manager new and encouraged employees to open checking accounts for people that wanted savings to make goals. When customers complained all the bankers involved lost their jobs, but not the regional manager. When I found out all of this was going on I resigned. Did not want to be a part of any dishonest behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest. the management from branch on up needs to be replaced.
