I have been working at Fifth Third part-time for less than a year

Pros

The profit sharing and 401k are positives.

Cons

I have been with this company for one month and I am looking for another position. Fifth Third does not have a positive environment. This bank does not care about the customer, only sales!

    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to launch an entry level career
    Great benefits
    Organized
    Career objectives are clearly stated and will be emphaticed if you fail to reach your performance measurements.
    If you live in CINCY, OH you will have career growth opportunties, if you live in another market don't expect to retire from ths company!!

    Cons

    Expect to work 6 days a week if your in retail at a minimum of twice a month
    Not much growth in retail
    Management does not encourage Persoal Bankers to get licensed.
    Sales is a primary focus, if your not living and breathing the company culture, your going to see like the TITANIC!
    No diversity in management/leadership roles,really people? This is 2012!
    If your MANAGER isn't good, you will more than likely fail!
    Comnpany does not allow much movement in retail environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage true growth within retail environment
    Allow for sales goals to be adjusted *reduced) if vacation time is taken during sales period.
    Due to the economy their should only be 1 PB per banking center, so that coworkers are not competing to stay afloat with outrageous sales goals.
    Publicy displayed recogition or award ceremony for top five sales champions!
    This position is tough for any normal human in this economic climate
    Stop depening on personal banker to act as managers often and keep them in entry level pay...how dare you!

    I have been working at Fifth Third full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Steady pay check, average base pay for teller position, relatively stress free job.

    Cons

    Management is poorly trained and therefore so is staff, slow and outdated systems, locked into positions with little mobility inside individual branches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branch Managers and Customer Service Managers need more hands on and applied training, or visits from top management, vs eLearnings.
