I worked at PNC Financial Services Group part-time (more than a year)

Pros

There is a fair amount of work/life balance. My manager truly strived to give us time off for doctor's appointments, family needs, etc, but they weren't always able to. To be fair, this is branch-dependent.

PNC does seem to care a lot about employee involvement, cooperation, and dedication. They don't always back it up with action, but they do seem to care.

There are good benefits for part-time workers.

Your schedule may change weekly, but you know exactly how many hours you're working, which is important for pay stability.

Cons

Sometimes, the two "sides" (tellers and platform employees) don't get along, and can be blamed for each others' mistakes. Again, this is somewhat branch-dependent, but the very nature of the setup makes this kind of thing likely.

Part-timers only get 2.5 days of vacation time a year.

Their performance reviews are unrealistic. A score of 4.5 out of 5 is considered to be, in the words of my manager, "awful." And if you get a customer at a bad time or if they were really angry, your branch's average could be affected for months.

The pay is much less per hour than what other banks pay.

We're told to refer to online policies and procedures, but many of these are missing or in strange locations.

Not much upward or even sideways mobility. All of us at the branch had applied for other in-company jobs multiple times, and only one worker was ever able to transfer (to another section of the company entirely).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix the online policies and procedures, and offer better pay to your employees. It's worth it for what you ask of them.

    I have been working at PNC Financial Services Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits - 2 weeks vacation your first year, health/dental/vision, tuition reimbursement, commuter benefit, pension, pretty much anything you can think of you get for full-time.
    You never work too hard, you never work not hard enough. A bit of overtime is required but nothing over 46 hours per week.
    Incentive pay for exceeding work efficiency and quality
    Chance to move up in company. A great place to start a career. You can get pretty high up from starting on the bottom.

    Cons

    Turnover - employees are hired and fired constantly. In the 4 months I've been here they've added about 15 people and just as many have been fired, quit, etc.
    Not flexible with shifts, you'll be working your shift even if there are positions open on another one (from the turnover above)
    Policies seem to change weekly
    Depending on volume, you may be forced to work overtime one day and forced to leave early on another, losing those OT hours you put in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get turnover under control. Make employees want to stay. Give them more time to learn the job (90 days sometimes isn't enough, especially when procedure changes 4-5 times inside those 90 days)
