Former Employee - Senior Mortgage Processor in Phoenix, AZ

I worked at Chase full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Treat employees with respect and did not micro-manage. Good base salary.

Cons

Hours were terrible -- 3:30pm to 12:30am! Small cubicles that were shared by 2-3 people on different shifts. Constantly being moved to another cubicle. Training was less than two weeks. VERY inadequate!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better training. Better hours. All-in-all it's a good company to work for.

    Former Employee - Personal Banker in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Chase full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Sometimes, there is an opportunity to study for a banker's license.

    Cons

    It was stressful working for Chase as a personal banker. The numbers were unattainable, and I did not feel like I was being treated like a human being. Also, clients did not seem like they were treated like human beings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat employees like people.

    Former Employee - Licensed Personal Banker in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Licensed Personal Banker in New York, NY

    I worked at Chase full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training
    Excellent exposure to all aspects within banking
    Benefits are great; 401k and health benefits.
    Depending on location, commission can be great.
    Handful of genuine and great managers that seek to help and mentor their subordinates into the right direction and growth.

    Cons

    Promotion guidelines - This is solely based upon someone elses opinion. As a banker, you can be number one in your branch and you may consistently bring in great business and close on your deals (whether being retail, investment, mortgage, or business banking), but ultimately this does not allow you to apply and seek growth within the company. You will not move from your position easily because the manager will not want to lose your production, therefore if you approach this in a way he/she does not approve, you can pretty much focus on making commission but you can kiss your hope of going anywhere within your market goodbye.
    Retail Management - While this statement cannot be generalized to most managers, it may apply to a vast majority of them. There are too many managers that have been promoted to this position simply because of their gross exploitation of a certain demographic within a market. Many managers are in this position and they would not be successful bankers themselves, yet they are there to manage and improve a bankers performance, What goes to say that the same banker they are criticizing would do a much better job when put on the same playing field?. It can be simply stated that while there are many successful bankers that will never be good/decent manager, there are also managers that will never be great bankers. Managing cannot be earned by selling; selling is one thing, management of adults is another. Many managers have mastered the art of managing people and make their workplace a pleasurable experience but most have a sweat shop mentality and fail to treat people with dignity and respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As someone who was successful in several branches with their own unique and distinct demographics, I can say that success within Chase bank is set on the eye of the beholder. While some may try to help you to grow into much more than a simple "account pusher", others want to keep you there and produce as much as possible so that they can dispose of you like trash. ADVICE - treat your employees with dignity and respect, while numbers and production are essential for branch P & L, disgruntled employees with no help or direction from anyone lead to negative and adverse effects within the workplace. Your bankers want to succeed and make money just as much as you do as a manager and DM; If a position is not available, then allow that person the opportunity to seek his path at another district or market, do not block their growth by playing politics and destroying any possibility of success beyond a good "PVC" month. The essence of banking cannot be lost; respect, dignity, and value of your employees is key in reducing your turnover in the PB position.
