    Pros

    Great Hours. The shifts were pretty good. Off on Sundays. Early Saturday morning hours.

    Cons

    Too Sales Driven. You got penalized when you didn't meet your sales goal. They pushed everyone to open new accounts even if the people didn't need them.

    Pros

    It is a job. You get decent benefits.

    Cons

    This is a sales job hiding behind the title of a customer service job. It is the most stressful environment that I have ever worked. Many of the supervisors are incompetent, but they are allowed to stay. They are allowed to get rid of associates so that they have to take no personal blame. And the sales system is horribly flawed. But they will still hold you accountable even though they can't always tell you why your sale didn't validate. The supervisor you get will play a great role in your experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to upper management is to get rid of the incompetent middle managers. They will eventually destroy the company.

    Pros

    This has great opportunities for advancement, great benefits and great bonuses. Coworkers inside the branch was great to work with.

    There is one particular area manager also known as a CSM that talks very bad to the associates that work in the branches that he oversee. He also call the female associates out of there names to other mangers. Human Resource does not keep confidential information confidential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Human Resource employees and Area Managers need to go to training classes.
