    Work hard, move up

    Branch Service Leader (Current Employee) Little Rock, AR

    ProsThey like to promote from within. There are a lot of wonderful people in management who are willing to lead you on the right direction to move up if that is the track you choose. High standards for goals, but they make it reachable with enough energy and focus.

    ConsThe pay is good in comparison to many competitors, but for a head teller, the responsibility is high, and the pay should reflect that more. The teller pay rate is good, but BSL should be closer to BTL pay in terms of expectations and responsibilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice is readily available when sought after, but it would be nice if there was more career guidance. During performance reviews, maybe tell the person what potential they see.

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

    I worked at Regions for almost 3 years as a Teller

    Vault Teller (Former Employee) Conway, AR

    ProsYou get decent benefits and paid holidays.

    ConsThere was no encouragement or assistance to advance within the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo better when hiring branch managers and listen to your employees when all of them have a complaint about said manager.

    Incredible culture and values. Great place to advance skills and career, but poor compensation plans.

    Branch Manager (Former Employee) Little Rock, AR

    ProsThere is great career mobility, especially for the financial industry

    ConsCompensation is too low, causing the top talent of the company to seek employment where they feel more equitably rewarded.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore competitive salary. You are losing your best talent because your best feel undercompensated. The career opportunities are strong, especially for the financial industry; however, that doesn't make up for undercompensating your best talent.

    I've enjoyed my time at Regions.

    Teller (Current Employee) Little Rock, AR

    ProsEasy-going culture, quality training, good communication with HR and management. I really enjoy the branch I work with.

    ConsLater hours, not much room for growth. I would love to step up to another position, but there are limitations on being able to do that in your first year. A step behind with technology. Just now using the latest systems in banking.

    It has been a good one.

    Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) Little Rock, AR

    ProsThe training, pay, insurance, people

    ConsThe downside sometimes are the hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should have real expectations for themselves and those they manage. Also they should treat others how they want to be treated.

    A lot of presure, but overall quality of loans were acceptable.

    Mortgage Underwriter (Former Employee) Little Rock, AR

    ProsAs long as you do your job and meet quotas you had job stability.

    ConsCorporate officers and President and CEO really didn't value the efforts of the employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn the mortgage business I think we all should have learned that making a loan which is of poor quality is not good business at all. To down grade employees because of their moral standards not approve or condone unethical behavior is wrong.

    Not a Bank to work at, nor a Bank to your account at!

    Bank Teller (Former Employee) Little Rock, AR

    ProsRegions Bank was a great place to work at for a couple of months. They did offer some training and a great tuition reimbursement, if you work there long enough.

    ConsWhile I was in school full time, I would get calls from my manager to come in early or skip class so that they would not be short handed. Regions bank as a whole is not truly a bad place to work for, but it is a "Good Ole' Boy" run company and very sexist towards women in particular. I only stay with Regions for 2 very long years, but that was 729 days to long!

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your tellers. They are the eyes and ears of your bank, and one on the hardest working members of your team. They will be able to tell you what needs to be changed and what will make the bank run smoother. A good rule of thumb, a happy teller is a happy customer. If the tellers are not happy, then the quality of customer service will go down.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
