Horrible Experience, Much different than banking center positions.

-It was a part time position during the weekends, this allowed me to have time for more important things during the week.
-It honestly wasn't a very difficult job at all.


Almost everything was wrong with this position.
This job is in a very undesirable location. I was required to come in at 6am, I would often arrive when it was still dark out and there were very dubious people standing around.
I'm used to a more professional setting. Therefore, I was thoroughly surprised when I found myself surrounded by so many angry and ill-mannered people. I'm not exaggerating when I say, I heard threats exchanged almost every time I worked. A lot of the employees were very vulgar (obscene profanity) towards one another and I can honestly say I was afraid of working there for fear of becoming a target.
The management during the weekends would not allow us to speak. We were literally told not to talk which I found to be odd. I also wasn't trained at all, and was just thrown into the position.
I found the position to be very boring. It was quiet all of the time due to not being able to talk during specific tasks.

To the benefit of the company, I honestly believe my personal experience was due to the location. I can say without a doubt that the actual banking centers and customer service roles are more professional. However, this specific setting (which had nothing to do with customer service) lacked decorum.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please do more audits and random checks during your weekend positions. It also wouldn't hurt to have more concern on who you hire.

    Stable company, despite being in the banking industry.
    Depending on the department you're in, it seems fairly easy to make friends.
    I feel fairly treated, despite cons below.


    Low pay.
    Not open to different ways of doing things.
    Slow to adopt new technology, and very stingy with buyin new software, computers, etc.
    The difference between what your raise is if you did a fantastic job that year and if you did a crap job is probably about 1%. Not much incentive to do good work.
    Really tough to find room for advancement. Hard to know what you need to do to get to the next level.
