    Pros

    benefits,its only 13 bucks for a non smoker for full coverage,on going job training of banking products .Customers are friendly for the most part

    Cons

    like another reviewer said"it's extremely difficult to get fired from this place".big time advantage for manager favorites,if your not one,you will not advance period. company does not uphold any promises,was told I would get a raise every quarter thats a lie.They will always protect the managers over the retail bankers every time.Accounts,are the top priority everyday,you market to the same walmart people that say no,every day.Depending on staffing if you get a day you actually want off,this is where being a favorite pays off because if you are one you will get whatever you want there is nothing that can be done about that,HR does nothing to help you if there is a problem with another employee. High turnover,very few managers stay over a year and retail bankers stay maybe 3 months.They require a lot of work for your pay,which if your lucky is at least 10 an hour. You must MARKET,ASK FOR THE BUSINESS,OPEN ACCOUNTS YOU MARKET TO,TELLER LINE,SCAN WORK EVERY HOUR,DUAL CONTROL EVERYTHING,PASSWORDS FOR EVERYTHING.Theres a guideline for everything you do and it changes monthly.You are so confused when you answer a customer's question you have to look it up just to make sure it didnt change last month.Classes,you will be taking a class a week,sometimes up to 3 ,20 min classes.If you dont get them done in time your bank suffers because of you .Competition ,you will be up against other employees/branches every month to make goal,if you do not you will be reprimanded ,managers are so scared about not making goal they yell and scream at the employees setting a hostile work environment .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees,they are not happy!!! You are asking wayyy to much from them for little pay and TERRIBLE hours.your incentives are a joke and no one really cares,because only the high traffic branches ever get them really. Take a feedback poll from us,and really make a difference.
