    Pros

    Good bonus, work with your hours if you're a student.

    Cons

    Don't care about their employees, lots of fees for customer, upper management have preferences towards their employees, and not a professional bank,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should really consider people who really work in all areas not only open accts, and for that you become a branch manager.

    A great place to work if you have school schedule, but be aware of the heavy sales-driven work load.

    I worked at First Convenience Bank

    Pros

    Scheduling flexibility, split pay between hourly and commission. Small teams allowed you to get to know each other and gel as a unit. Entry level banking for entry level customers, allowed the employees to learn all aspects of retail banking.

    Cons

    Fast pace with sometimes minimal training. Sales focus meant employees had to 'pester' patrons of parent store, as the bank was situated inside grocery stores. Often high-turnover of employees due to confusing management, poor training, and/or deficiencies in selection criteria. beware of ultra-feminism which leads more women and/or "feminine men" to be promoted faster than guys. The bank has a stigma of being a second-rate bank just because it caters to the second-chance customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Careful on who you hire, and be sure to learn as much as you can about how they're coming across to coworkers and customers in your absence. The branches have a tendency to become ghetto and rude to customers. Crack down on employees on the phone on teller station. Modify your performance measures to reflect your store and market. Conduct performance appraisals on time!!
