    Former Employee - Retail Banker in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Retail Banker in Houston, TX

    I worked at Woodforest National Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good place to start if you have no previous experience
    -Flexible hours if you are going to school

    Cons

    -Terrible pay
    -Very long and variable hours, especially if you're in a 24 hour branch
    -You have to buy your work shirts. 7 minimum shirts at $25 a piece
    -Branch management often comes from unrelated backgrounds (including fast food) and are unexperienced
    -I felt like I was lying or misleading clients when talking about products and services

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire experienced and quality employees that will do the right thing. Very rarely did I see management go out of their way to do the right thing, for their employees or customers.

    I have been working at Woodforest National Bank full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    decent pay and benefits
    enjoyable team environment
    opportunities for growth
    flexible schedule
    solid business model
    community involvement

    I am very thankful to work for this company and enjoy my job a great deal. There is ample room for growth if you are intelligent and willing to put in the effort to learn about the products and services, and develop yourself as a leader and good employee.

    Cons

    sometimes HR has policies that keep them from hiring the best candidate
    uniforms need improvement or elimination
    you will work weekends, some holidays, nights (it is a "retail" schedule) - just know that when you apply

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to employees and customers (which I believe you do) and anticipate market changes and areas for growth (also being done).
