Cash Vault Teller, Great company but depressing job

Teller (Former Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I worked at Fifth Third full-time for more than a year

ProsFifth Third can be an exciting place to work depending on your job. 5/3 is involved in the community and does lots of work with United Way. They have some great mentorship programs and leadership programs.

ConsWorking the Central Cash Vault is depressing. You are in the basement all day with no windows. You process deposits all day, and that is all you do so not for someone who likes to do different things.
The pay raises are terrible as well. So negotiate your salary before starting.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good job and environment, however difficult to obtain a full time position unless you know somebody.

Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at Fifth Third as a contractor for more than a year

ProsGood company to work for.
Has solid business.
Pay is decent.

ConsBusiness ethics/tactics.
Hiring procedure and HR never responds to your employment inquiries.
Layoffs when the company slows down instead of repurposing job titles or moving employees around.
The majority of management does less work than regular employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote based on performance and skill, not who you're friends with or how you feel about someone.
