    Pros

    Strong leadership at the top and a deep bench of future leaders ready to take on key roles like CEO and President of Retail.

    Cons

    I'm tired. Really tired. The hours we put in are long and packed full of productivity. Whatever happened to "banker's hours"? LOL

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep aiming high.

    Pros

    Great opportunities - Diversity - training. The Training cannot be beat , their team is right on top of all changes.

    Cons

    The salary is less than desirable. The mid-level managers need to be coached on compassion and retaining employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to recognize your lower level employees - Awards - Banquets - increased salary would be beneficial.

    Pros

    I been there 2 yrs and I have liked it a lot they have worked with me on medical issues and did everything they could to help. The past yr I feel like management is like family.

    Cons

    Very low pay for a high stress job. Sales incentive is a joke the only reason anyone tries to sell is to get off the phone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people roll over vacation time, Really talk to middle management not upper yes men. When rolling out new system take your time to make sure it works instead of just rolling it out and seeing if it works or not.

    I have been working at Huntington National Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people I worked with were amazing and I formed many close relationships. They offer great benefits and there are many opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Policies and expectations change almost constantly. I was fired from my position for violating a policy that they had never informed me of. I filed for unemployment and they denied it for weeks saying that I was aware of the policy that I had violated. In the end, they had no proof that they had ever informed me of the policy change. I have heard of many similar cases from other people who have been fired from Huntington. Their expectations of their employees is inconsistent and makes for a very unstable work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be clear with your employees what their expectations are and work with them when they don't line up with what previous managers have expected, because there will be huge discrepancies.

    As a collector, our goals were completely unrealistic and were not granted the support of management.

    I worked at Huntington National Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I had a great experience working for Huntington, although I was only there a short while. The training offered was helpful and extensive. I felt as though my manager truly cared about my progress and future with the business. Benefits were great and I felt valued as an individual.

    Cons

    I cannot speak to working as a banker in a stand-alone store, because my experience was at an in-store branch at Giant Eagle. The most unfavorable component of this position is 'aisle time.' The company wants employees to spend time pushing checking accounts and other banking services / products while customers are doing their grocery shopping. It's awkward, intrusive, and feels obnoxious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Setting up a cart at the front of the store or throughout the store gives employees a place to feel grounded and less uncomfortable, rather than expecting them to push banking services / products to customers shopping the aisles.

    Pros

    There are ample opportunities for personal growth. Compensation is relatively competitive in certain areas.

    Cons

    Paid time off is lagging behind from past employers. The intention for promotions seemed to be right on mark but the follow through of actually putting the promotion through seemed to be lagging. The work being completed seemed to be 2-3 years ahead of the title/compensation.

    Pros

    Marginal benefits. Their checks clear. It beats working at McDonalds but the pay is about the same. No other positive things.

    Cons

    Anti-commission plans. the company sets up the incentive plan so that it is nearly impossible to earn an incentive. Huntington Bank clearly not this misrepresents job functions and duties during interview process.
